Belgrade Calling Festival 2016


Belgrade calling festival 2016 – on Wednesday, 22nd of June, 2016 edition of Belgrade calling festival will be held! As a headliner for the first festival day, English soul star John Newman will perform!

John grew up in a small county in Yorkshire, with a brother and a mother, who introduced him to the sound of Motown and Stax record labels. Dance troupe Northern soul influenced John as well, which is noticeable in his music.

Even as a youngster he used to work everything alone – with the age of 14 we started playing guitar and learned how to record and produce, he even was a DJ. His growing up was marked by the lost of his two best friends in a car crush, which influenced his music: “The pain was so strong, I needed to find a way to deal with it. So, I was studying during the day, and at night I was crying and making songs”.
