Beached Whale Festival 2016 01.jpg

Priding itself on being the only festival in the world dedicated to beached whales, the Beached Whale Festival (Festival nasedlega kita) is a laid back and at the same time very creative and upbeat summer music festival presenting curious new music to the region. It was established by the local youth as a response to the lethargic period of summer holidays in the city of Velenje and was launched in 2009. It takes place at Škale Lake (Škalsko jezero) near Velenje.

The musical acts predominantly represent electronic music (Borka, Žiga Murko, Some1Else, BeatMyth, New Wave Syria, Kleemar, etc.), accompanied by occasional alternative rock-oriented acts (Tovariš Strmoglavljen, 12). The festival also organises annual workshops for creating various whale sculptures. Hence, the festival has seen its fair share of whales, from robotic to gigantic.

The festival – which also has a club pre-event called "Half-whale there" – is co-produced by Velenje Youth Centre (MC Velenje) and is supported by the Velenje Urban Municipality.
