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.

Lent Festival

Established in 1993, the international Lent Festival is among the largest open-air festivals in Europe and the most massive festival of its kind in Slovenia. Each year it presents around 300 diverse cultural performances and events on different stages, including various styles of popular music, opera, rock, ballet, jazz, classical music, street theatre, chanson, folklore and revivalist folk, theatre, busking music, events for children, dance performances and musicals, workshops for children and also sport events. The festival is a cacophony of sounds and quantity, easy going festivities and smoky barbecues, but also an occasion for quality performances at more hidden intimate venues.

Lent Festival regularly attracts around 500,000 spectators, dispersed during the 3-week-long event at over 23 venues, improvised stages and re-purposed old spaces along the banks of the Drava River. The Festival is a member of the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA) and the Association of Slovene Festivals (SloFA)
