On the latest episode of the All Things Croatia podcast, Croatian-Australian music entrepreneur Steve Pavlovic tells his story.
Known as Pav. Steve has an impressive career, from booking some of the biggest bands in the 90s, to starting his own record label and putting on festivals in Croatia. He’s done it all.
He was once described in an article as the ‘coolest guy in Australia for a fair bit of the 1990s who had the home phone numbers of everyone on the cutting edge, from Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl to Beastie Boys and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth.’
Steve talks with Stanko on the episode about his Croatian roots and connecting with fellow Croat and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic after bringing Nirvana on their first tour to Australia.
He also talks about starting his own record label and signing bands including Tame Impala and Wolfmother, festivals on a Croatian island he used to put on as well as how he’s currently enjoying his time on the island of Vis.
