The fifth edition of the winter festival of music creativity, taking place at various venues in Ljubljana from 30 January to 1 February 2019, is announcing its first performers – 24 acts from 17 countries. MENT Ljubljana, named Best Small and Best Indoor Festival in Europe at the beginning of the year, is doubling down on the awarded titles by celebrating the exciting concert scene from all over Europe.
The already familiar concert venues are joined by the Ljubljana Castle, with the conference programme also heading to new territories. It will offer insight into the limitless possibilities of the Chinese music market and explore the significance of boutique festivals, sustainability, going green and, last but not least, equality. We are happy to announce the first keynote interviews with Claire O’Neill, cofounder of the non-profit company A Greener Festival, which awards the A Greener Festival Award, and Natasha Padabed, owner of the More Zvukov agency and an exceptional curator.
