“Game of Thrones”, “Star Wars” and “Robin Hood” have all been filmed here over the years.
World-renowned social media brand Mr. Afterparty and BSH Events are looking to take you on a spectacular music journey through the historically and culturally rich treasures of the world’s best cityscapes, with their new series “Steam City Live”.
The first event launches in Dubrovnik, Croatia, at 5 p.m. BST on Sunday, May 24th from the ancient walls of “The Pearl of the Adriatic” and the World’s first quarantined city back in 1377, and it will be aired on the Mr. Afterparty pages as well as BSH Events and selected partners.
This series is a blend of music and culture to emphasise the historic heritage value of the cities, their highly modern character, culture and unique architecture, through impressive ad hoc recorded cityscape images mostly taken during lockdown by advanced drones as never seen before, so is more than just a visual exploration.
“Now it’s time for the scene to give back to communities! A charitable streaming event supported by local tourist boards and governments aimed at raising funds in this moment of global and local emergency. A spectacular DJ set of an aesthetically sublime flavour with donations in favour of the International Red Cross and local charities,” organisers said.
Mr. Afterparty is one of the most current and influential social brands in electronic music worldwide, with over 1M+ followers and a monthly reach which has seen peaks of 80M+, the team behind “Last Night A Streaming Saved My Life” a 24 DJs – 24 Hours – 24 Location live streaming fundraiser in aid of COVID-19 relief, the first of its genre-leading the way in what has become a very popular format.
DUBROVNIK – World’s 1st Quarantine
The first event launches in Dubrovnik, Croatia, at 5 p.m. BST on Sunday, May 24th.
BSH Events is a production and event management company based in Zagreb, Croatia producing dance events with an out of the box approach to unique venue selections, which have a significant cultural value such as the 13th century Medvedgrad Fortress, Zagreb Airport and Trsat Castle.
The first event comes in association with the City of Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik Tourist Board and Society of Friends of Dubrovnik Walls. The storied and stunning city, part of the UNESCO heritage, is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Europe. Its beautiful landscape has been home to a number of movies and series as seen on “Game of Thrones”, “Star Wars” and “Robin Hood” to name a few.
In 1377 during the Great Plague, which is considered to be the worst pandemic to ever happen, the Republic of Ragusa – Dubrovnik today – started implementing the world’s first quarantine measures in a desperate attempt to contain the disease within city walls. In 1431 the first stone Lazzaretto (a building created to hold quarantined persons) was built on Supetar island, and soon the construction of a larger, fully-equipped lazzaretti followed in order to accommodate the ill and the suspect, so is the perfect location to kick off this series.
The stream will feature two live DJ sets from two separate locations – the Lazzaretti, as well as the ancient city walls of Dubrovnik while taking you on a cultural journey to the most beautiful spots of the city. Starting with Mathame’s ‘Nothing Around Us’ on Afterlife played by a pianist and a violinist from two different sites, you will be introduced to the DJ sets at sunset as you are shown the two perspectives of the city by day and by night.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated in favour the International Red Cross and local charities in aid of COVID-19 appeals.
