Concerts, movies and fun science in Belgrade and Novi Sad this weekend

It’s Thursday and time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up in the next few days.


Event: Texas in concert

Place: Ranko Zeravica Sports Hall

Time: 29th September

Given that, for health reasons, Texas had to cancel his performance at Arsenal Fest in Kragujevac, one of the most popular bands from the 1990s still did not want to disappoint their fans so their first concert in Serbia will be held on September 29th at the Sports Hall Ranko Žeravica. Texas is a Scottish pop-rock band from Glasgow. They were founded in 1986 by Johnny McElhone and Sharleen Spiteri on lead vocals. They took their name from the 1984 Wim Wenders movie Paris, Texas. The band released their debut album Southside in 1989, along with the debut single “I Don’t Want a Lover” which was an international hit, reaching the top ten in the UK and other high charting positions in Europe. The band released their ninth studio album, Jump on Board in May 2017 to critical acclaim, with “Let’s Work it Out” serving as the lead single from the new album.

One of the cult classics of the Yugoslav film – National Class (Nacionalna Klasa) – has been digitally restored and will be screened at the Student Park this coming Saturday.  The film portrays one week in a life of Branimir Mitrovic “Floyd”, a young rally driver from the National Class (up to 785cc), dreaming of promotion to the higher category.

The decisive race on Saturday is only what he cares about.


Event: The Researchers’ Night

Place: BIG shopping mall and KC Lab

Time: 28th and 29th September, from 5 pm onward

The European Researchers’ Night is an event dedicated to popular science and fun learning. The Researchers’ Night is a unique opportunity to meet researchers, talk to them, and find out what they really do for society, in interactive and engaging ways such as hands-on experiments, science shows, learning activities for children, guided visits of research labs, science quizzes, games, or competitions with researchers. The European Researchers’ Night takes place every year all over Europe and in neighbouring countries the last Friday of September. This year, the Night will take place on Friday and Saturday, 28th and 29th September in over 300 cities. The events are supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is an EU funding programme to boost the careers of researchers.
