RETROPATIJA, Musical and theatrical spectacle, July 20th 18:30
Retropatija brings us back to the 60`s, 70`s and 80`s. Contrary to 'Opatija-Imperial City', the idea is to remind our guests of the laid-back atmosphere of the period. In the park behind Villa Angiolina one can see oldtimer cars while the music is playing from their radios; the dancers dressed in suits of that time are dancing, drinking popular drinks of that day, eating toast and chewing first bubble gums. In front of Villa Amalia is a beach party, guys with guitars and pretty girl in bikinis. The main event is Ivo Robic`s concert on the terrace of Kvarner Hotel, as indeed once was. The biggest disco ball is set on the Open Air Theatre as a symbol of that time in Opatija. The party is going to last throughout the night and finish with the greatest hit of the band performing the next day - Kool & The Gang.

Beach beneath Villa Amalia, 18:30 – 23:00 Be hippy, be happy or the free 70s

Lido Beach 1, 20:30 – 23:00 Rock'n'Roll or the Swinging 60s

Lido Beach 2, 20:30 – 23:00 Rock Nostalgia

Remisens Hotel Kvarner, 22:00 Mr. Morgen, the greatest hits of Ivo Robić

Concert: KOOL & THE GANG "Everyone to the Disco!" , July 21st, 21:30, Slatina beach
Kool & The Gang are an American jazz, soul, R'n'B, funk and disco band. They have sold over 70 million albums worldwide and influenced the music of three generations.

Kool & The Gang has been performing for the past 35 years, longer than any R’n’B group in history. That should be a good enough reason for you to come to the disco beach in Opatija!
