This year’s jubilee of the oldest Slovenian popular music festival, which began in May 1962 in Bled, will for the first time shine the spotlight on the great contribution made by the masters of the word, acclaimed Slovenian poets, whose verses have enriched and left an indelible mark on the history of Slovenian popular music. In the mix of hits and songs awarded for their texts, we will pay homage, amongst others, to the following: Gregor Strniša, Miroslav Košuta, Svetlana Makarovič, Ciril Zlobec, Branko Šömen, Frane Milčinski Ježek, Elza Budau, Dušan Velkaverh, Milan Dekleva, Ervin Fritz and Milan Jesih. The top musicians of RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra and Big Band, under the baton of Patrik Greblo, will accompany some of Slovenia’s best singers on the 70th anniversary of Ljubljana Festival, who will treat us to more than 23 unforgettable songs such as: Malokdaj se srečava, V Ljubljano, Dan neskončnih sanj, Cifra mož, Leti leti lastovka, Zato sem noro te ljubila, Zvezde padajo v noč, Šopek maka, Breskvice, Lastovka etc. We will be guided through the evening by masters of the spoken word Bernarda Žarn and Mario Galunič.
An unforgettable musical beginning to the summer awaits us, at which we won’t know until the very end, who will have the honour of singing the traditional concluding musical encore – Summer night!
