This year even bigger and in more Slovenian cities!

This year’s Praznik glasbe will be celebrated for the fifth consecutive year in five Slovenian cities, where more than 40 music venues will host performances of more than 500 musicians of different generations, musical styles and genres.

The first day of summer will be lively, as on June 21st Slovenia will once again join the world–wide initiative called Fête de la Musique and European network European Music Day. This year’s festivities will include more performers, expand to more venues and to more Slovenian cities like Ljubljana, Maribor, Piran, Murska Sobota and for the first time ever also Nova Gorica.

This year’s Praznik glasbe will commence at its most eastern point in the town of Murska Sobota, with a morning music party on the terrace of the Youth Cultural Center MIKK, curated by Vlad.

Maribor, where Praznik glasbe will join forces with Festival Lent, will also show its vibrant colours. Morning events will take place on Main Square while the evening ones will be staged by the Lent fountain.

The capital city of Ljubljana, where Praznik glasbe teamed up with the festival called June in Ljubljana, will showcase a riveting programme, stretching from the city center to Fužine, Štepanjsko naselje and Šiška. The majority of the events will, however, take place along the banks of Ljubljanica River where numerous music stages will be situated.

Rock music lovers will, however, enjoy events in Tabor Park, while electronica fans will find their glee in Tivoli Park.

You can also decide to bike around the city on a punk tour or enjoy a private DJ session whilst chilling out under the treetops of the Congress Square.

Ljubljana Jazz Festival and Slovenian Philharmonic will also join the festivities this year.

Nova Gorica will also offer a diverse programme. Besides the daylong concerts at the different venues, such as Ploščad Silvana Furlana, Bevo Square, Edvard Kardelj Square and Mostovna, a public discussion entitled “Nova Gorica – a musical town?” will be held.

Praznik glasbe will also travel the length of the Slovenian coast. There will be tunes and songs echoing from Punta in Piran, to Seča (Municipality of Piran), all the way to Koper, Izola and Ankaran.

The coastal part of Praznik glasbe will gain international flair with the Italian national community from Ankaran joining the celebrations under the name La festa della musica. Meanwhile electronica venue in Ljubljana’s Tivoli Park will host Yoshi – a music producer and DJ from Berlin.
