Dubioza Kolektiv played storming performances at Boomtown and Bestival in 2018 and toured the UK for the first time in November blowing away audiences around the country with one review saying “when they grace our shores again, make sure you catch this life-affirming band and their explosive live show”
Once upon a time (2003) in a faraway land called Bosnia and Herzegovina, a group of friends decided to form a band. Along with local Balkan flavors, their musical influences come from all over the world: ska, punk, reggae, electronic, hip-hop. Yet, there was no music industry, few concerts, no space for cultural or political expression among the new crop of plugged in youth. In fact, the entire region was reeling from deep moral and economic stagnation. It was from this environment that Dubioza Kolektiv was born, and not quietly, but kicking and screaming, presenting no-go topics front and centre, and demanding to be heard-and in doing so, they created a phenomenon.
Fast forward to 2018 the band continues stronger than ever and are now established as among the best and most popular live outfits in Eastern Europe, hallmarked by their most recent musical release “Happy Machine”, perhaps their most provocative album to date. Their is a new album in the pipeline for 2019.
