In early July, in the very heart of Zagreb in Ribnjak Park, musicians of various genres and artistic expressions will perform for their fans as a part of the international Crossover festival Zagreb.

This year’s Crossover Festival Zagreb, which is to take place from 4 to 7 July in Ribnjak Park in Zagreb, will gather musicians of various cultures and music genres; from world stars to those who are yet to acquire that status with the use of their talent. The festival offers something to cater for all tastes: from jazz, funk, soul, rock to hip hop, gypsy swing and world music. It gathers various performers and their fans in one place.

Israeli multi-instrumentalist Adam Ben Ezra will perform at this year’s Crossover Festival, and will certainly thrill the Zagreb audience with his greatest hits. They earned him a lot of fans both among audience and music critics.
