Timeline

No Sleep festival timeline is available HERE.

Locations

No Sleep Festival, a member of the EXIT family, supported by the popular domestic brand Guarana, will be held at multiple locations in Belgrade, with the main events taking place at the Main Hangar in the Port of Belgrade, accompanied by other events at various capital’s clubs and a daytime conference.

Main Hangar

The central program of the No Sleep Festival will be located at the industrial scenery of the Port of Belgrade and its Main Hangar at the bank of Danube, a new spot for the biggest electronic events in Belgrade. Adding to the overall vibe, the venue is surrounded by cranes, loading docks, rails and a labyrinth of halls, while located just a mile away from Serbian capital’s central Republic Square!

Main Hangar will welcome several thousands of visitors in its industrial surroundings, including a state-of-the-art production which is a trait of leading world indoor electronic events.

Drugstore

Drugstore is a DIY cultural venue in Belgrade, set in the space of a former slaughterhouse, with brutal interiors and intense industrial atmosphere. Over time it has become a melting pot of the city’s sub-cultural life, hosting a great number of names from different corners of the international underground music scene, ranging from contemporary techno acts to indie bands and cutting-edge experimental projects. It is also an oasis for local artists.

MARSH. Open Space

Conference part of the No Sleep Festival program will be held at Marsh open space, capitol’s fresh creativity center. The space’s distinct interiors and its architecture exude inspiration and creativity, making it the perfect stage for established speakers who will gladly share their “know how” with the No Sleep audience.

half

Club half is a new place in town and the beating heart of Belgrade’s electronic music scene, which aims to implement a new and revolutionary concept to the capital’s nightlife.

20/44

Thanks to its unique looks and lineup, club 20/44 made it to The Guardian’s “25 of the Best Clubs in Europe – Chosen by the Experts” list, alongside many world-famous clubs such as Berghain (Berlin), Air (Amsterdam) and DC10 (Ibiza). Located at the Sava river and decorated as an 80’s brothel with velvet booths, hand-painted details and vintage lighting, the club has a retro vibe enriched by 17 old computer screens lined up next to one of the walls.

Yugovinyl

Specialized in selling rare and new vinyl records as well as books, Yugovinyl will also serve as an intimate gathering spot for all vinyl sound lovers among the No Sleep festival audience.

Dot

Located in the very city center, Dot is a place to be for all of those with a distinct taste in interior and music. During the No Sleep festival, the club will welcome some of the most exciting local DJ names.

Mladost

Mladost club is a must-visit on the festival locations map, thanks to its urban interiors marked with metal and brick details. Consisted of two parts – the bar part and the basement – the club will provide various party options to all No Sleep festival-goers.

Gadost

Sharing the same address with the Mladost club, the “naked” space of Gadost is another one of No Sleep festival locations which will host exciting DJ acts. Thanks to brick and concrete elements this interior is precepted as industrial while being a perfect stage for the No Sleep concept.

Gajba

Gajba’s motto “Let the records spin” will also be the club’s theme during the No Sleep festival nights. An unusual space filled with antique furniture pieces is located on the same address as clubs Mladost and Gadost.
