Wednesday, July 19, 2017

The stars of this year's 15th Belgrade Beer Fest will be joined by the famous hip-hop/ dance attraction, the British band Stereo MC's.

Their performance will mark the second night of the festival, an hour after midnight, within the new festival space - Innovation Zone. Stereo MC's were created in the mid-1980s inspired by hip-hop and the legendary British club scene. Band reached their international success with the album "Connected", which, in addition to high circulation, provided them a tour of performances at famous festivals including Glastonbury. They received prestigious awards such as "Mercury" and two "Brit" awards for the best album and best performance. After this period, there was a slumber, during which they were mostly in remixes, and seven years later they returned to the music map by single "Deep, Down and Dirty".
