Apgrade is a clubbing brand from Belgrade, Serbia. Apgrade makes people dance!
We promote parties, live shows, weekenders and electronic music events for more than two decades.
Before we became promoters, we were on a dance floor and we were also DJs. Still frequenting the dance floor, tuning our sound systems and getting excited about new music, we’ve learnt how to make and keep our crowd and artists up for a good party. The trick of our trade is: “We treat you just as we would love to be treated by everyone else”. Everyone is important!
We hosted a number of DJs and bands so far, big and small, superstars and upcoming. We are proud of the long list of you who have performed at our events and returned to play again:
Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Dixon, Nicolas Jaar, Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Marco Carola, Ame, Miss Kittin, The Hacker, Green Velvet, Steve Bug, Tiga, Vitalic, Michael Mayer, Mathew Jonson, Daniel Bell, Derrick Carter…
We pay a special tribute to our musical heroes so we promoted their Belgrade gigs. Among them are Massive Attack, Public Enemy, Afrika Bambaataa, Terry Callier, Echo & The Bunnymen, to name a few.
Apgrade founders have been placing Belgrade on the global dance map since 1994. We helped our city being recognized as the clubbing metropolis by the Resident Advisor, The Guardian, Muzik, Mixmag, New Musical Express and we will continue to keep it going.
You know us, we’ve met before.
