The festival's name, which is a word play that could be roughly translated into "play-be", was first used in 2009. The festival then became somewhat bigger, evolving together with the young agency itself, whose protégés manned the festival's line-up. Some of the focus was also shifted to other festival dimensions, introducing an auction of unique, in situ recorded and designed albums that featured the concerts themselves. This was accompanied by an exhibition of the previous work done by the album-designing artists. A year later, the festival again broadened its scope and besides presenting musicians from the Celinka Label, they also invited foreign guests, continued with the auction concept and organised some workshops, jam sessions, and a photography exhibition.
Some of the musicians who have appeared on Godibodi Festival's stage include: Brina, Aritmija, Vasko Atanasovski, Jararaja, Kisha, Ba-rock, Bilbi, Korjander, Brencl Banda, Aleš Hadalin & Petzapet, and Robert Jukič & Kramp as well as Eszter Horgas, Ariel Cubria, Chriss Garrick & John Etheridge, and Simone Zacchini.
In 2015, the festival has for the first time introduced an after-festival two week tour of Slovene clubs and festivals for the featured artists.
