In light of the 50th anniversary of Radio Študent, the 10th edition of Tresk offers two whole days of festivities, events at three different locations, all dedicated to the independent music scene. This year’s 10th edition of Tresk Festival, a festival that has over the years become international, marks the beginning of the Spring/Summer festival season of 2019. This year the calls for hedonism are imperative, spreading and reversing the logic: rave – eat – buy records – see concerts – repeat!

TRESK MUSIC MARKET
The TRESK music market is a special opportunity for record labels of all kinds – from underground labels to large distributers – to present their new and classic releases. This year we will feature local record labels and, beside them, some foreign independent record labels from France, Austria, Croatia and elsewhere. These are just some of the confirmed attendees of the representatives of local and foreign record labels:
Akuphone (Paris, FR) / comfortzone (Wien, AUT) / God Bless This Mess records (SLO) / Geenger Records (Zagreb, HR) / Interstellar Records (Wien, AUT) / Kamizdat (SLO) / KAPA Records (SLO) / low income $quad (HR) / PDV RECORDS (HR) / Pozitivan ritam (Zagreb, HR) / Slušaj Najglasnije – Listen Loudest (Zagreb, HR) / STIROPOR (SLO) / ŠOP Records (SLO) / ZARŠ Records (SLO) / Moonlee Records & MORE
Our conference program will be devoted to the problems of small and medium-sized independent record labels. We will highlight the instability financial sources for record labels and how they have to adapt or acquire new financial resources. On the other panels the different ways of promoting artists and how different record label profiles approach this issue in different countries across Europe will be discussed. The last panel will be devoted to independent radio stations and their role in the media spectrum today with participants from France, Croatia and Austria.
Radio Študent and Tresk Festival open a yearly call for applications for designers and visual artists. They are invited to submit their album’s visual image, concert photographs, videos, music videos, posters for events and innovative approaches to music advertisements.
The result is an exhibition of the finalists in each category, chosen by a committee of local established designers and experts in the field of visual culture. The exhibition will take place in Kino Šiška during the festival and until the 21st of April with the annual presentation of awarded applicants.
The festival will feature two workshops – the first one will be organised by local beatmaker Andrija Šulić – Šuljo, who will work on the music-making and music production on smartphones and tablets through various apps. The second one, hosted by Vinilfabrika, “vinyl-factory”, will introduce various ways of analog sound recording. The attendees will also have the chance to make their own vinyl record with their own sounds, recorded during the workshop.
