Bluesland - Slovenia International Blues Festival!
Exceptional Blues Experience!
Born from the roots of MotörCity festival, Bluesland festival will concentrate solely on genuine Blues music. Although MotörCity was great fun, we, promoters, learned that 90% of our visitors are passionate Blues lovers and were visiting MotörCity just for the Blues music, and are less interested in Rock & Motorcycles.
This was the major reason behind our decision, to rename MotörCity into Bluesland, with a broader focus on real Blues music, that will satisfy, attract and amaze even the most doubtful and experienced Blues enthusiasts.
At MotorCity we were able to host some amazing artists; Chris Thomas King, Hans Theessink, Terry Evans, Laurence Jones, Kris Barras, Popa Chubby, Matt Schofield…to name just a few.
Because we believe that great Blues music enthusiasts deserve only the best and so does the capital city of our beautiful, small country Slovenia, city of Ljubljana, we decided to stage Bluesland at most beautiful location there is; Bluesland will take place at the historical Ljubljana Castle, a medieval fortress, that was constructed in the 11th century and acquired its present outline with an almost complete overhaul in the 15th century. And what an outline that is; you will be able to experience and see majestic entrance to the castle complex, Open-Air Prison, Gunpowder Room, Erasmus Tower, Rock Hall, Penitentiary, Castle Chapel of St George, Hribar Hall and Armoury, Palatium,...and an amazing The Panoramic Tower that offers breathtaking view over the capital, surrounding hills and mountains. The festival will be held at The central Castle Courtyard, that is closed on all sides, covered with paving stones and full of dynamic architectural elements, which will provide a perfect scenery for Bluesland festival.
