The main activity of Festival Ljubljana is the organisation and running of the international summer festival, which serves to place the Slovenian capital city on the map of globally important cultural and arts venues during the summer months. Its carefully selected programme covers a wide variety of genres, including ballet, opera and theatrical productions, musicals, chamber and symphony concerts, the International Art Colony, master classes, children’s and youth workshops, Ljubljana Festival on the River Ljubljanica and much more.


During this time the Križanke complex redesigned by Plečnik, Kongresni trg square and the stages of other Ljubljana cultural institutions host more than 4,000 artistes from more than 40 countries, and each year events draw large audiences of local culture lovers and touristis.

The grand opening of the 69th Ljubljana Festival will take place on July 1st at 9 pm on Kongresni trg with the Mariinsky Orchestra from St. Petersburg under the baton of maestro Valery Gergiev.


Mariinsky Orchestra from St. Petersburg is one of the most important Russian orchestras. It is led by conductor Valery Gergiev since 1988 and has been treating Slovene audiences with unforgettable performances at the Ljubljana Festival for several years. For the opening concert of this year’s Ljubljana Festival they will perform the symphonic poem White Carniola by Marjan Kozina, a legend of Slovene classical music, and the tragic Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz, a masterpiece that in many respects anticipates Wagner.
