Southern Soul Festival has confirmed its schedule for the upcoming sixth edition, taking place from June 28 through July 1 in Montenegro.
Curated by the same team for five years, Southern Soul Festival is recognised for its carefully selected world’s finest sounds of jazz, funk, soul, house, and Afrobeat mixed with the warm-hearted atmosphere.
