If you are in Montenegro or are looking for a fun side trip from Dubrovnik, Croatia this upcoming week, here are a few options.
Many local businesses only use social media and frequently post events close to the date. So, planning ahead can be challenging unless you monitor their social pages. Facebook pages are common, but this year, Instagram has seen a surge in popularity.

Operosa at Mamula: Friday, August 4th
Herceg Novi is known as the city of artists, and its annual line-up of art and culture events shows it. This year, the Operosa Festival is in its 10th year.
I went to the recital for Operosa at Mamula, and it was absolutely stunning. The fort is a beautiful setting for a concert, and the performance was top-notch.
Tickets are 40 euros, which is a great value for a night of world-class entertainment. You can buy tickets at gigstix.me or book at email@example.com. A boat transfer from Mirišta and Skver is included.
Reggae Fest: Friday, August 4th – Saturday, August 5th
If reggae is more your style, catching a boat is unnecessary as the Reggae Fest starts at Skver (city marina) in Herceg Novi at 4 pm. So, bring your swimsuit. The city beach has showers and changing stalls to change into dry clothes if you take a dip. After sunset, the music will move to Fort Mare, the fort at the sea.
As a Caribbean island girl, I was delighted to discover Reggae’s regional popularity here in the Balkans and am looking forward to the festival.Tickets are 12 euros each day and available at https://rootsrevival.me.
