Britain’s raciest and sassiest musical cabaret trio, Fascinating Aida, will celebrate 40 years on the road with their 40th Anniversary Show tour which heads to the Belgrade’s Main Stage on 22 and 23 February 2024 at 7.30pm. Fascinating Aida have racked up millions of internet followers, performed in the world’s most prestigious venues and been showered with awards and plaudits since they sashayed onto the scene back in 1983. Marking this astonishing milestone, the show will feature much-loved favourites and some wickedly hilarious new songs.

Stewart Lee will return to the Belgrade’s Main Stage in 2024 with his new show Basic Lee on 24 and 25 February 2024 at 7.30pm, having sold out his 2023 performances at the venue. Dubbed ‘the world’s greatest living stand- up’ by The Times, after a decade of ground-breaking high concept shows involving overarched interlinked narratives, massive sets and enormous comedy props, Lee enters the post-pandemic era in streamlined solo stand-up mode. One man, one microphone, and one microphone in the wings in case the one on stage breaks. Pure. Simple. Classic. Basic Lee.

Frankie Boyle will bring his Lap of Shame tour to the Belgrade’s Main Stage on 27 February 2024 at 7.30pm. ‘Frankie Boyle’s on tour. Buy a ticket, because by the time he arrives, the currency will be worthless and you and your neighbours (will be) part of a struggling militia that could probably use a few laughs.’
