Slovenia is going to organize its first Slovenian music week. It is an important musical and cultural event which will include interactions at a local and international level. Its goal is to encourage international presentation and development of music artists and performers.
STG will crosscut everything that Slovenia has in store; it will gather local and foreign experts for selected music genres, enable exchange of opinions, and a selected »know-how«, as well as provide for casual socializing of musicians and everyone else with a will to create in the field of music. The basic goal is above all to initiate and speed up the process of making music for Slovenian artists, encourage them to be more active in order to appear on home and foreign markets and to help open up doors of foreign institutions for the productive ones.
What will STG programme offer?
With its lectures and workshops the festival will open and process important subjects such as copyright for musicians, functioning of music associations (such as SIGIC, SAZAS, IPF), publishing trends, music journalism… Visitors will be able to listen and participate in discussions about »music breakthroughs«, about music’s contemporary visual image, at the PR workshop they will find out how to prepare an efficient »band-kit« etc. Guests in lectures and workshops will be home and foreign connoisseurs alike. Visitors of the festival will get an opportunity to obtain information and guidelines directly from experts and key participants on the music scene.
Purpose of the event:
The purpose of STG is to further develop Slovenian music scene and its participants. Promote new and fresh music energy. Introduce significant potentials of Slovenian music and promote the current music scene.
We are positive that STG can help Slovenian musicians achieve recognition home and abroad. The purpose of the event is to support musicians and everybody else active in the music industry. We would like to raise awareness and open doors for Slovenian musicians across Slovenian borders and highlight quality local music. Slovenian music week will unite all aspects and genres of music into one package, which will then be presented to a wider audience and foreign experts, build a bridge between culture and economy and support mutual understanding. We would like to draw as many experts and institutions as possible to this project, especially the ones that have helped with the development of the Slovenian music scene in the past. This integration is to take place on a local, national and international level.
STG is an opportunity for all music experts, aficionados and musicians; to get to know one another, connect, communicate, share experience and knowledge, to contemplate about their favourite subjects, socialize, casually share experience and skills. It is an excellent opportunity to bring out the best this region has to offer and promote contemporary bands, artists and genres. Let’s enable potential Slovenian music gems to introduce their work in an international environment, help them establish key contacts and important relations with key figures of the world music scene.
Slovenian music week is thus becoming a new tourist product, bringing out not just rich cultural artistry of a country, but also opening it to the outside, presenting it to the world and establishing long-term contacts for further cooperation.
Who is it intended for?
Performers (musicians, DJ-s), music managers, booking agents, music events organizers, club owners, music distributors, festival producers, film directors, internet companies, radio and TV stations ...
