Garage Explosion Festival
The festival seems to have come to an end in 2016.
Musicians playing on the Garage Explosion stage are predominantly, but not exclusively, based in ex-Yugoslav countries. Some of them are The Bambi Molesters (Croatia), Damir Avdić (Bosnia), Erotic Biljan & his Heretics (Croatia), DMT (Serbia), Concrete Worms (Serbia) and the Slovene bands Muškat Hamburg (they are actually a part of the group that organises the festival), Res Nullius, Dicky B. Hardy, Tavžntroža, etc. Guests from other EU countries and even the USA garage rock legends The Morlocks have also played.
The "Afterparty" in Ilirska Bistrica hosts a partial selection of the main festival's line up, giving the bands more stage time than allowed by the packed timetable of the main event. The "Garage Foreplay" part of the festival is usually also set up in early December, presenting some of the artists who will later be featured on the Garage Explosion itself.
Otherwise set in Maribor, the festival was organised at the Klub Menza pri koritu in Ljubljana in 2008.
