This unique party, organized by EXIT and the Tourist Organization of Herceg Novi, will be headlined by one of the most popular acts on the global house scene, ranked third on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list, the masked grandmaster Claptone, at his premiere performance in Montenegro! His co-star at this show will be the region’s woman of the year, the fantastic Konstrakta, accompanied by her band Zemlja Gruva. Local support will be provided by the charming and energetic Kejt, along with representatives of the Montenegrin electronic scene P.S. and Bodzie. 

The name “Winter Flower” is EXIT’s tribute to the mimosa, the only flower that blooms during winter. This natural rebel thereby uniquely transcends laws and rules. The concepts of winter and flowers are mutually exclusive in almost all other cases because the appearance of flowers signifies the end of winter and the arrival of spring. For this reason, it is celebrated, among other things, at the Mimosa Festival, a large masked gathering with decades of tradition and guests from the entire region and Europe.

One of the world’s most intriguing DJs, Claptone, will have his premiere Montenegro performance at the Winter Flower event. With unparalleled authority at the DJ counter, coming out from behind his widely recognizable Venetian mask, Claptone is synonymous with always great and difficult-to-repeat house and tech house DJ sets, inspired by the need for eternal and endless enjoyment of carefully selected tracks. His debut album “Charmer,” with 60 million Spotify streams, delighted fans of electronic sound worldwide, and Claptone continues to throw unforgettable parties. Last year he was ranked third on the prestigious DJ Mag Alternative Top 100 list, and this year he is on Beatport’s Top 10 Best-Selling Artists list! His sound is described as deep and woozy, with a hint of melancholy laced with juicy funk.

After a spectacular premiere performance that exceeded all fans’ expectations at this year’s Sea Dance festival, Konstrakta returns to sweep the Montenegrin audience off its feet once again with Zemlja Gruva. Konstrakta delighted and won over the entire world with her performance at this year’s Eurovision, and as the biggest star of the summer, she played the main stages of EXIT and Sea Star as the first local headliner in the history of both festivals.

The fantastic line-up is joined by the unstoppable Montenegrin pop sensation Katarina Bogićević Kejt, while the local support P.S. and Bodzie will keep the crowd dancing until the early morning with a back-to-back set.

Admission to the big Winter Flower party is free.
