Since its founding in 1992, Vurberk Folk Pop Festival has been annually hosting select "folk-pop music" ensembles at the grounds of the Vurberk Castle (located between Maribor and Ptuj, in eastern Slovenia). It accepts only groups that feature a diatonic accordion and utilise two or more voices. Each year, it presents about a dozen ensembles that compete for various prizes – for best lyrics, best vocal performances, best overall song and a few others.

The festivals are recorded and aired by RTV Slovenia Regional Broadcasting Centre Maribor, and the resulting CD is annually published by the Discography Unit, RTV Slovenia. As of recent years, there is also a pre-event, where the finalists are chosen.
