PicniConcert is a family meeting with good music, food and drinks. It’s a different form of spending free time together, since it enables quality cultural experience that is intertwined with relaxed socializing and ecological awareness. In the summer months we invite you to retreat from the summer heat, relax under the pine trees in park Tivoli near Tivoli promenade and enjoy a snack while listening to ethno and folk concerts. You can get to know great music from all over the world, traditional instruments and different singing techniques. You can bring full picnic baskets, blankets and your own instruments as well if you are a musical enthusiast since the stage is open to everyone after the concerts.
All events are free of charge.
In case of bad weather the events are canceled or postponed (with the alternate date published on our website and Facebook page).
July 2nd at 6pm – Beer Belly (Slo)
Beer Belly is a five-member music group from Kranj whose music covers traditional Irish, Scottish and Celtic culture from playing well-known traditional songs to lesser-known Irish reels, jigs, Scottish dudes and Celtic songs, dating few centuries back. They also enrich their program with their own compositions and Slovenian folk music adapted in a slightly different way.
July 9th at 6pm – Zajtrk (Slo)
Zajtrk are Laura Krajnc (violin, vocals) and Sven Horvat (guitar). Their musical genre is very wide, as their songs touch ethno-folk, jazz, blues, pop and sometimes also a little flamenco and stoner rock. They perform as well on a stage as on the street. The lyrics are mostly in Slovene. Their topics range from socially critical and satirical to lyrical and humorous ones.
August 6th at 6pm – Worldwide Welshman (UK)
Worldwide Welshman is a modern day troubadour coming from North Wales with his infectious tunes, multi-lingual musings on modern life, international party classics, funk-rock-jazzed-up welsh folk and a big red beard. He takes the audience on an exhilarating musical journey from Wales to China via the rest of the world, uniting hippies and bankers, east and west, joy and melancholy.
August 20th at 6pm – Drajnarjuva vampa (Slo)
Drajnurjuva vampa are brothers, an academically educated pianist and accordionist, who enriched their rich musical knowledge with a chanson, “Tomwaits” approach to creating original music. From Tomaž’s dialect lyrics you can hear humor, harsh social criticism, obscure folk metaphors, squeaky vocals and melodic fantasies that reveal the masterful storyteller.
August 27th at 6pm – Eni od sedmih milijard (Slo)
Eni od sedmih milijard are an indie-folk group of seven musicians formed in 2013. They intertwine the sounds of violin, acoustic guitar, piano, clarinet, drums, bass guitar and sing stories. They are great both on the street and in concert halls. The audience describes them as a sincere, melodious and dynamic group that leaves a mark with strong lyrics and genuine contact with the audience at every concert.
September 3rd at 5pm – Tretji kanu (Slo)
Tretji kanu are Anja Pavlin and Jan Medle, musicians from Dolenjska who come from completely different musical backgrounds, but – as in the legend of the third canoe on the bend of the Krka river – the fate moved them both to a new direction. Their compositions combine Anja’s softer pop and Jan’s harder, rocker rhythms. They have released two albums and had concerts around Slovenia.
