Festival of music, wine and fashion

European Capital of Culture Maribor 2012
20 Mar 2012 to 22 Mar 2012


With notable guests from the music scene, wine making, fashion, and the concept of festival itself (synergy concerts, exhibits, workshops, films, activities for promotion of artists, etc.) various domestic and foreign institutions are interconnected in this project.

Highlight of the festival is also one of the most intriguing events of the spring part of the programme, a concert of Kings of Strings. We have also prepared teaching lessons for young musicians. Slovenian winemakers will present several Slovenian wines, most of which are from Styrian region; Slovenian winemakers will be accompanied by foreign winemakers originating from the countries that musical guests come from. Fashion highlight will definitely be a presentation of lace from Idrija, a pride of Slovenia that is going to be displayed in the form of workshops, exhibits, and fashion show.
