Okarina Ethno Festival Bled, Slovenia
Okarina International Music Festival is being held in Bled for the 26th summer in a row. World music of all shades coming from all parts of the globe, clothed with rhythms of contemporary music, attracts visitors to the idyllic setting of the Bled Lake. From 26 July to 7 August, top musicians will be performing at the Bled Castle and the lake shore promenade, sending out a clear message on the importance of multiculturalism.
More than 240 ensembles and solo musicians coming from all continents have performed in Bled over a quarter of a century as part of Okarina Festival. This year’s festival programme is bringing fresh world music and jazz trends to Bled and in turn to Slovenia as well. Previous nine festivals as well as the 26th Okarina Festival have been organised under the patronage of the Bled Culture Institute.
