    Since during the Festival we want to follow our mission as much as possible and thus lead to inclusion, this year we are introducing a novelty for the participants of the festival regarding the presence at the event. For kindergartens we introduce the presence from 9:00 to 11:00, and for primary schools, institutions and other organizations from 9:00 to 12:00. Two-hour attendance for kindergartens and three-hour attendance for schools, institutions and other organizations is a prerequisite for active involvement in the activities that we offer at the festival, since the main objectives are achieved with this presence: social inclusion, interaction, cooperation between different participants. Your performance is only part of your cooperation, and the main and most important part is that we are jointly developing inclusive relationships and activities. We believe that you will help us fulfill our mission and contribute to even greater quality of festival activities. We want to jointly shape an open society, prepared for equal inclusion and active participation of all children and adolescents in the society.

    This year, at the evening concerts in Ljubljana, will join us: the rapper Zlatko and Optimisti, the winner of the Slovenian television show ˝Znan obraz ima svoj glas˝ Luka Sešek, singers Alenka Godec,Tanja Žagar, Gojmir Lešnjak – Gojc, the world class trumpeter Timotej Kotnik with international guests from Berklee College of Music, the Serbian singer-songwriter Branimir Rosić with his band, the choir of the Special Education Center Janez Levec Ljubljana, the girls’ choir of the Gymnasium Celje - Center …

    We are inviting you to join us at this year's festival! You can present yourself with your own interesting performances, shows, workshops, animation programs, sketches, puppet performances or other skills. We are looking forward to your visit, as with fresh new ideas you will contribute greatly to the development of the festival.
