My personal concerts, festivals and artist portraits favourites of the year 2019

Yet another year is coming to its end, which brings all kind of ubiquitous "best of lists" all around us. Can’t say that I’m much of a fan of them, but I admit I do like to turn back and see what have I've been up to — I’m proudly presenting my annual recapitulation of the past 12 months and my personal favourites from concerts, festivals and artist portraits taken in the past year :)

Before I start with the usual photographic highlights of the year, I just want to give a shout out to three bands that marked the 2019 for me (not just in the sense that they were the ones that I worked the most with): Parni Valjak, Koala Voice and Okttober.

Parni Valjak from Croatia are arguably the biggest rock’n’roll band in this ex Yugoslavia region, with 44 years history and experience, and numerous albums and concerts behind them. I was very privileged to work with them as their tour photographer for the bigger arena shows in Croatia this year (next one is scheduled for December 26 2019 in Varaždin’s Arena) which I really enjoyed.

Koala Voice are, on the other hand, young indie band from Slovenia and one of the best new bands in the same region, and one of my all time favourite bands. Despite their age (they’re all in their twenties) they’ll be celebrating already 10 years on the scene next year and I’m positive that the wider region (Europe, I’m talking about you!) will hear about them much more in the coming years. This year I joined them on few gigs on their Balkan tour and we did a promo photoshoot last month and both of that was just a blast! :)

Last but not least, Okttober. They are a great band from Maribor, Slovenia that, after some hiatus, are back and are recording their second album as we speak. I was really happy to discover this band, meet the guys and follow them on few of their concerts this year (not to forget the fun photo session we had). More fun to come, definitely!

Besides those three bands, I’d like to list shortly few other photographic highlights (not all music related, though!) that made also 2019 so awesome:

For the end, as the tradition goes (already for the 9th time since I’ve started my website!), I'm posting some of my favourite concert, festival and musical portraits photographs of the year 2019 — hope you enjoy them!

I also wish to sincerely thank to all of the artists, bands, managers, light designers, sound engineers, stage technicians, colleagues and friends who made all of this this possible!

Thank you all for your support, stay well & see you in 2020! ;)
