Yugotopia is a New York City-based dance project inaugurated in 2017 featuring sounds from former Yugoslavia (1945-1991). A wide variety of rarely heard pop, new wave, folk, and other finds exclusively selected by DJs Drugari - Boshko Bosković & Amir Husak. Aimed to connect the ex-Yugoslav community through pop culture references and shared memories, as well as to welcome those who would like to discover and enjoy this extraordinary discography.

In a true collaborative spirit, we were thrilled to produce this third edition of Yugotopia Dance Party and host it at our home & HEKLER HQ in Brooklyn with a backyard dance floor, music by DJ’s Drugari, live projections by Irfan Brković & Jelena Prljević, and Youth Day inspired visuals by Jelena Antanasijević.


HEKLER HOST brings together 2+ collaborators to create 4 hours of programming featuring a combination of food, music, exhibition, performance, book launch, spoken word or reading that examines a topic of shared concern. The events are hosted by partnering satellite venues provided by HEKLER or collaborators. Upon request and feasibility, the team provide production and networking support in a close dialogue with the proponent. The events can be by invitation only or open to public depending of the proponent’s preference.
