The famous French cover band Nouvelle Vague arrives in the European Capital of Culture on 13 January, to celebrate Doček 7530 with the citizens of Novi Sad and their guests in the City Concert Hall from 10 p.m.
Depeche Mode, Blondie and New Order are just a part of the repertoire of this unique band, which has seven studio albums, as well as millions of views on music platforms.
Their name in French means ‘new wave’ and at the same time refers to the French New Wave movement from the 1960s, which refers to cinemas, and to the music movement from the 1970s and 1980s. Also, the name refers to the bossa nova musical style (in Portuguese it means new wave), which the band often uses in its arrangements.
Tighter Control of the Epidemiological Measures
All programmes within Doček 7530 were adapted in accordance with the epidemiological measures, so from the beginning, the planned concert capacities were limited throughout the ticket sales. As a result, the ‘Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture’ Foundation is taking over the initiative to implement additional measures and to tighten control over compliance with the said measures. Therefore, as a first measure, the Foundation recommended postponing 60 per cent of the concerts, while the tightened control will be present at the concerts that are directly produced by the Foundation. Further, the capacities of the concerts that will be realized are only filled up to 50 per cent, and even less, at certain locations. Along with the tickets, the visitors will be required to submit either a green certificate, an antigen test not older than 48 hours or a PCR test not older than 72 hours.
In accordance with the current epidemiological measures, it will be necessary to wear masks and maintain distance at the event itself.
Free testing at two sites will be provided for the visitors.
For all the visitors who do not have a green certificate, an antigen, or a PCR test, two sites for free testing will be provided on 13 January at these two locations:
- In the centre of Novi Sad, in Liberty Square (Trg Slobode) on 13 January from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
- Inside of the City Concert Hall (Cara Lazara Boulevard 67) on 13 January from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
