70th Ljubljana Festival

The main activity of Festival Ljubljana is the organisation and running of the international summer festival, which serves to place the Slovenian capital city on the map of globally important cultural and arts venues during the summer months. Every summer the Ljubljana Festival makes an important contribution to the cultural life of Ljubljana with a carefully selected programme covering a wide variety of genres, including ballet, opera and theatrical productions, musicals, chamber and symphony concerts, the International Art Colony, master classes, children’s and youth workshops, Ljubljana Festival on the River Ljubljanica and much more. During this time the Križanke complex redesigned by Plečnik, Kongresni trg square and the stages of other Ljubljana cultural institutions host more than 4,000 artistes from more than 40 countries, and each year events draw an audience of more than 60,000 people.
