Summer in Belgrade is really hot, sweaty and steamy. Humidity is very high, temperature is over 30 degrees. Asphalt is a glowing, people are quite nervous, waiting for summer holidays, some of us for music festivals. Summer season is like this: every place in the city smells interesting & fun, but interesting & fun is actually quite hard to find. But, if You know right people and right places, everything is possible. For Example: party on the cool boat 20/44.
Cool Boat 20/44 on the river, on the right side there is a Pop king statue
First, I drop by Disco Bar Mladost and KC Grad located in Sava Mala quart. Mladost was quite ok, there was some house/ nu disco party going on. After one Somersby, We changed place to KC Grad, there was house matinée and lot of folks literary chilling in the yard. That was quite fine, but not enough for our affinities. So We took a walk up to 20/44 over the Branko’s bridge.

We were on the boat around 2 AM. It was very crowded, but not that much interesting. But, that was only in the beginning, around early morning hours the real party started. On the decks first Belgraders expected well-known old school Detroit artist Terrence Parker. But, unfortunately He didn’t make it, due to problems with JAT flights.

DJ Doo on the decks
So Detroit artist Terrance didn’t play music. On the decks were local club deities Milan Drcha & Dusan Doo. Listening and dancing to the sounds of old-school house, deep and soulful was really awesome. Crowd was really in a good and positive summer mood. Lots of colors and different outfits could be seen out there. The sun, the river, the house, the vibe,the summer and the beautiful Belgrade when the morning comes!!!!!
