Dino Merlin is the most renowned singer/songwriter of Bosnia and Herzegovina and one of the greatest and most popular music artists in the Balkans. Among his other record-breaking successes he is the only performer ever to have filled to capacity the Koševo Stadium in Sarajevo four times in a row (with his “Middle Way”, “Burek”, “Starting Anew” and “Hotel National” tours in 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2015 respectively) and the Belgrade Kombank Arena five times: three nights in a row in 2011 (25, 26, 27 November 2011) and twice in 2015 (25 and 26 October 2015).

Dino has represented his country three times in the Eurovision Song Contest and
throughout his career Dino has collaborated with many internationally acclaimed artists, including Cat Stevens (UK), Mustafa Sandal (Turkey), Lutvi Bošnjak (Tunis), Edo Zanki (Germany), Arjinder (UK), Gani Tamir (Israel), Kempa Orchestra and Hüsnü Senlendirici (Turkey) as well as some of the biggest stars of the region, including Zdravko Čolić, Goran Bregović, and others.
