Adriatic Coasting began as a weekly radio show hosted by The Garden’s Co-founder Nick Colgan alongside Pepi Jogarde who is now The Garden’s musical director and heads up their DJ agency. The radio show has run every Sunday from 18:00 - 20:00 on 102.5 Yammat FM in Croatia for the last two years and has become a staple for Zagreb’s music aficionado’s.
‘It evokes vacation emotions, laid-back summer days and balmy nights, a cool breeze in the air and the big blue topped off lashings of style and sophistication, Adriatic Coasting aim is to evoke 80’s Italian Riviera luxury but with a modern Adriatic twist’.
‘There is a certain music we obsess about and we call it Adriatic, it’s a musical scene that is both niche and as wide ranging as you like by its nature. Adriatic Coasting means a musical style that adopts a mantra of anything goes’.
As time passed Nick & Pepi realised they work alongside so many talented local and international DJ’s that fitted perfectly into their Adriatic Coasting vibe. It was then the roster of their Adriatic DJ agency began to organically grow with initially only a few of their closest friends and family joining the ranks. Now the very eclectic Adriatic Coasting DJ roster is as extensive as it is varied and all artists are available for bookings worldwide plus they perform regularly at the showcase Adriatic Coasting events, always providing the perfect musical backdrop to whatever the occasion.
