Summer in the City!
When the last act of the festival Soboški dnevi is played, the Festival Soboško poletje (Sobota summer) and the Festival Hidden yard are already starting. Free concerts, shows and events in several venues, in July and August.
Every Friday in July and August will be followed by excellent concerts, very different genres of music from ethno, swing, rock, all the way to pop. The Big Band from Čakovec with the Zagreb singer Ivana Galić is coming, the trio DO-RO-JA from Sobos are coming to the Sobos summer stage on the occasion of their 40th anniversary of creation. Many of their friends will perform as guests at the concert. It will be followed by a concert by this year’s winners at the EMA and thus our representatives at the Eurosong, this is a young band: LPS – Last pizza slice. The next concert will be the Sekou Kouyate Experience. He is one of the greatest virtuosos on the 21 string African harp “Kora”. The way he plays has earned this Guinean musician the nickname Africa’s Jimmy Hendrix. The Slovenian audience already knows him. There will be another treat for all lovers of African music and their artists. This time it will be a singer with incredible energy, WIYAALE, who comes from Ghana and is one of the most successful African artists in Europe. As in the past few years, the Soboška summer cannot be celebrated without Dalmatian music – this year it will be Klapa Capris. The second to last will be performed by excellent “Beatles” imitators. Beatles tribute The Halp! The summer in Sobos will be closed by the very popular local group ŠPIRIT.
In July, concerts at 9:00 p.m., in August at 8:00 p.m
The M. Sobota Institute for Culture, Tourism and Sports, which organizes the Soboško summer and the Hidden Courtyard, will also take care of children. Every Saturday at 10 a.m., there will be a performance for children on the stage of Trg kulture, as always.
