Ljubljana Festival

The Ljubljana Festival is a renowned and highly ambitious international festival which offers a variety of music, theatre and dance performances by leading international as well as domestic artists. Between 70 and 80 events range from concerts of classical, ethno, rock and jazz music, to performances of opera, theatre and ballet. It enriches the capital city with concerts of star soloists, acclaimed ensembles, chamber and philharmonic orchestras and performances by prima ballerinas, opera divas, and seasoned thespians.

Taking place from the end of June to the end of September, it is the main summer festival in Ljubljana and certainly amongst the bigger ones in the wider region. As of recent years, the festival also has a small 'winter edition' in February.

Lighting Guerrilla Festival

First held in 2008, the Lighting Guerrilla is a quite special festival that explores, elaborates and sheds light on the myriad relations between light, the public space and the 'confines' of the gallery walls. Initiated a year earlier as a workshop at the festival "Lighting Detectives" (Detektivi svetlobe), it is founded and run by Strip Core, otherwise predominately active as the comic art section of Forum Ljubljana.

The festival is well known for its luminous, site-specific 'exhibition objects' presented at several public locations, mainly in Ljubljana; its streets and gardens, the Ljubljanica bridges and quays, the French Revolution Square, the Tivoli Park, etc. By way of exhibitions, installations, workshops and performances, each year's programme is dedicated to a certain topic – among them the concept of shimmering, the functioning of darkness, and the role of light in shaping the urban experience.
