Festival Description

With its international music festival, Bled is becoming one of Slovenia’s most prominent organisers of summer music festivals. Its program is well-developed, internationally designed, modern, and maintains a high level of quality, thus accomplishing its original purpose: to wake up the Muse of Bled, who sleeps, dazed by the beauties of the region of Carniola. The festival has a European as well as a cosmopolitan touch, and the celebration of Bled’s one thousandth year is the perfect occasion for music, the queen of art, to fill her lungs with breath. Within the framework of the festival, there are also professional workshops and international competitions for violists and violinists alike.

The Violin Festival traditionally takes place in the last days of June and in July, at different locations in Bled and its surroundings. On the evening stage, the most acclaimed violinists from around the globe perform to the highest level of virtuosity. The serenity of their performances are embraced and enjoyed by connoisseurs, as well as the broader audience. Night after night, they fill the concert halls and thus write musical history by including premier performances by modern composers who also attend the festival.
