Special Projects

Choral Photo Promenade

Each choir’s intimate dynamics, their perception and delivery of music, backstage and social moments are unique enough to deserve their very own photo-exhibition. No, not just an exhibition – make that a real-life photo promenade that will inspire even those who do not get to experience the choral universe first-hand.

This is why we will prepare a call for photo entries designed to catch the best of 2D choral magic, be it of powerful stage moments or from official photo sessions, memorable backstage moments or perhaps an image of your director’s instructions doodled away on your well-thumbed music score that makes you feel like Picasso’s distant relative.

Familyvision show

It is all about families in all their many shapes and forms, and the perfect opportunity for families to take that stage! Make a note for 23rd July 2021, warm up your vocal cords, get your distant cousins twice removed to join you, make sure one more time that your grandma gets the date right, and apply for the Familyvision show!  The stage awaits!

Our family-friendly committee will select 10 families that will present themselves with two songs each. All music styles welcome!

If you are interested in taking part, make sure you mark it clearly in your Festival Registration Form. A more detailed form will be sent to you after the general registrations have closed.

Cosy Sessions

Do you want to experience the cosiness and hospitality of Slovene homes? Now is your chance! Slovene hosts will welcome you on their home “stages” – couches, balconies, porches, verandas, gardens and listen to your private performances. Some neighbours may join you, but hey! – in Slovenia, we are all each other’s neighbours. What can you expect? Slippers, coffee, delicious refreshments, and lots of great music. Most importantly, however, expect to make new friends and lasting memories!

If you are interested in taking part, make sure you mark it clearly in your Festival Registration Form. A more detailed form will be sent to you after the general registrations have closed.

A brand new game: UNLOCK® LJUBLJANA  –  The Music City Adventure

ENIGMARIUM® has a new outdoor city adventure UNLOCK® LJUBLJANA – MUSIC, specially designed for the Europa Cantat Festival 2021.

Enigmarium® Ljubljana, the region’s first and favourite escape room centre, introduced its original game concept in September 2014. By February 2015, it had become the No. 1 activity in Ljubljana and in June 2016 it earned  “The Certificate of Excellence”. Today, with its 25 original games in three EU countries, Enigmarium® does not only set trends in the field of gamified tourism, but is also one of the most popular tourist attractions.

Visitors are invited to embark on an adventurous journey through the old town with the “Escape Room” game elements and unlock the seven locks of the book of mysteries. Waiting for them are seven entertaining tasks about Ljubljana’s music history and the lives of renowned musicians. Who is the first to crack the code and reveal their message?

The gamified city tour combines real historical facts, local legends, the excitement of the good old scavenger hunt and escape room games. Teams of 2 to 5 are invited to unravel the secrets of Ljubljana, get to know the unknown, and above all – have fun.
