Festival Omladina (trans. Youth Festival), also known as Omladinski festival, is a music festival held in Subotica, Serbia. The festival was founded in 1961 as a competition of young composers of popular music. Their compositions were performed by pop singers, but soon the performers of competing compositions became rock bands. In the 1970s, the non-competitive part, featuring established rock acts, was added to the program, and in the 1980s it became a competition of young rock bands. During the years, some of the most notable acts of the Yugoslav pop and rock scene performed on the festival.

In 1990, at the beginning of Breakup of Yugoslavia, the festival ceased to exist. In 2011 the festival anniversary was celebrated with a concert of famous acts who made their first steps on the festival, and in 2012 the festival was reestablished.

The festival was founded by the members of Mladost (Youth) Society for Culture and Arts, as a competition of young popular music composers.[1] More than 120 compositions by composers from all parts of Yugoslavia were sent to the competition, 9 of which were chosen to be performed at the festival.[1] The festival was held on December 4 and 5 in Subotica National Theatre.[1] The songs were performed by young singers who were members of Mladost society.[2] The youngest of them was six-year-old Evika Stražarković.[2] The singers were accompanied by Mladost Brass and String Pop Orchestra conducted by Josip Kovač.[1] The festival was recorded by Radio Belgrade.[2]

Non-competitve program[edit]

1978[edit]

Omladinski festival was considered something you had to pass through in order to appear on our scene. It was a dream of all of us who played guitars on stairs [of public buildings] and in passages. Couple of times I was naive enough to send my works, believing that sent works are carefully revised by some commission before the invitations are sent, but I actually got the first invitation after some of my, let's say hits brought me some attention, first "U razdeljak te ljubim" with Žetva [...] then "Prva ljubav" with Rani Mraz, and then I got the invitation, 'come, the Subotica Theatre'... No one even asked me what we [Rani Mraz] would perform, I brought some three or four songs, one of them was "Računajte na nas", a song which, at that point and in that place, had a terrific effect, because at that time we all loved that country. It wasn't a regime, a communist song, later it became a little twisted, it got some other tags, and I stopped performing it when I realized that it was turned into a motto, but at that point... That year on the festival were Galija, Atomsko Sklonište, some people who later had huge success, everybody was backstage and I remember that everyone was on the verge of tears...

-Đorđe Balašević in 2010[24]

The eighteenth edition of the festival was held from May 11 to May 13, in Subotica National Theatre and Subotica Sports Hall.[25]

The performance of Rani Mraz on the evening of patriotic tunes remains one of the most memorable events in the history of the festival.[25] On this occasion, the band for the first time performed their song "Računajte na nas" ("Count on Us"), which praised the People's Liberation War from the perspective of the youth and which would soon become an unofficial anthem of the Yugoslav youth.[26]

Awards[edit]

  • First Prize - "Kad prođe vreme" by Miomir Pavlović; performed by Miomir Pavlović and Icina Deca

  • Best Interpretation Award - Mira Ostojić[22]

Non-competitive program[edit]

1979[edit]

The nineteenth edition of the festival was held from May 17 to May 19.[27] It was crucial in festival's transition from competition of young composers to competition of young rock acts. Prior to the nineteenth edition, unaffirmed rock bands were invited to perform at the festival, but only in the non-competitive part, with mostly pop, pop rock and soft rock acts competing for awards; in 1979, the organizers decided that from this edition all unaffirmed acts which were invited to perform would be competing for awards.[27] The competition featured 37 compositions.[27]

The bands Pekinška Patka and Prljavo Kazalište were the first punk rock acts to perform at the festival. These two bands did not apply for the competition, but, alongside progressive rock band Boomerang and jazz rock band Den Za Den, got special invitation from the festival director Vitomir Simurdić, who wanted the festival to move away from pop format.[28] Boomerang won the First Prize, Pekinška Patka won the Audience's Choice Second Prize,[1] and Prljavo Kazalište was disqualified from the contest after performing gay-related song "Neki dječaci".[29][30] Then little known musicians Robert Funčić and Vesna Vrandečić, who performed Funčić's song "Veruj mi" and won Audience's Choice First Prize, would two years later form the band Xenia.[31]

Awards[edit]

  • First Prize - "Živjeti iznad tebe barem dan" by Zlatko Klun; performed by Boomerang
  • Second Prize - "Dubina" by Aleksandar Dujin; performed by Meta Sekcija
  • Third Prize - "Stiže poslednji autobus" by Branko Kovačić; performed by Branko Kovačić

  • Audience's Choice Second Prize - "Bela šljiva" by Nebojša Čonkić; performed by Pekinška Patka
  • Audience's Choice Third Prize - "Stiže poslednji autobus" by Branko Kovačić; performed by Branko Kovačić
  • Best Interpretation Award - Obećanje Proleća (performing "1979" by Branko Bogunović)[27]

1980[edit]

It never happened before, nor will it happen again, that this number of hot, new performers arrived to Subotica. This edition of the festival would be remembered as exceptional in every way, including the date - the festival was regularly held in May, in accordance with the practice of holding youth events in the month of relay and Tito's birthday. But that year, May was the month of nationwide grief, so Omladina Festival was moved to autumn. Thanks to that moving, a lot of bands who were, during the spring of that year, just making their first steps entered the program: Električni Orgazam, Idoli, Šarlo Akrobata, Haustor, and if we add Film and Na Lepem Prijazni [...] it becomes clear that Subotica in the autumn of 1980 was one of the most interesting and most important meeting points in the history of Yugoslav rock. Most of those musicians, arriving from different cities, would meet each others and hear each others perform for the first time here. Fuzzy ideas musicians from Zagreb had about the new scene in Belgrade - and vice verca - will be given image and tone here.

-Igor Mirković in 2003[32]

The festival in Subotica was a key event, because we spent several days with those guys [from other bands], and those several days seemed like several weeks. It was very motivating [...] we were some sort of new-found heroes to each others, and we tried to live up to that heroic mission.

-Darko Rundek (formerly of Haustor) in 2003[32]

Due to the death of Josip Broz Tito on May 4, the twentieth edition of the festival was, instead in May, held in October.[1] Twenty-four compositions competed for the awards. All three prizes by the jury and all three by the audience were given to rock bands.[33] The festival anniversary was celebrated with performances of numerous artists who received acknowledgment after appearing on the festival: Bisera Veletanlić, Dalibor Brun, Kemal Monteno, Tomaž Domicelj, Lutajuća Srca, Miladin Šobić, Jadranka Stojaković, Leb i Sol, Boomerang and others.[33] On its anniversary, the festival received numerous accolades: the Seven Secretaries of SKOJ Award, the Liberation of Subotica Award, the Radio Belgrade Golden Microphone Award, the PGP-RTB Silver Plaque, the FIDOF Award and several others.[33]

The twentieth edition of the festival is notable as one of the most important moments in the history of Yugoslav new wave scene, as it included performance of some of the most notable new wave acts from Belgrade and Zagreb: Šarlo Akrobata, Idoli, Električni Orgazam, Film and Haustor.[1][32] As on the previous edition of the festival, young bands did not apply for the competition, but got special invitations from the festival director Vitomir Simurdić.[28] Other bands which got the invitation were the progressive rock band Na Lepem Prijazni and ska band Kontraritam.[34] Film would be Awarded the First Prize, Šarlo Akrobata the Second Prize and Idoli the Audience's Choice Third Prize.[33] The organizers initially did not take Električni Orgazam into consideration, but were persuaded to include the band into the program by Riblja Čorba leader Bora Đorđević. Električni Orgazam caused a scandal with their performance, which included damaging microphones and cymbals and destroying colored light bulbs which were part of the scenery, and were disqualified from the competition.[35]

  • First Prize - "Neprilagođen" by Jura Stublić; performed by Film

The hard rock band Kerber, which won the Rock Evening First Prize, would two months after the festival release their debut album and become of the most popular bands on the Yugoslav hard rock scene.[39] The best Interpretation Award was won by little known young singer Mladen Vojičić of the band Top, who would a year later gain nationwide popularity as the singer of Bijelo Dugme.[38]

1984[edit]

The twenty-fourth edition of the festival was held from May 17 to 20.[40] A smaller number of awards was given than on the previous editions, partially do to funding problems.[40] On the Rock Evening, for the first time the award was given to the band for their complete performance, not for one composition.[1]

The First Prize on the rock evening was won by the band Automobili. The prize included the recording of a studio album. As they were already working in studio on their debut album, they decided to give up on the prize in favor of the runner-up, the band Beta Centaury.[41] With the release of their debut album later that year Automobili would rise to popularity.[41] The band Zabranjeno Pušenje was invited to perform in the non-competitive part, but refused due to the fact that their applications from the time when they were an unaffirmed band were regularly refused.[42]
