11. Sep from 21:00, Castle Courtyard, Ljubljana Castle
Due to measures related to covid-19, we were forced to reduce the capacity of the Castle Courtyard to the allowed 500 visitors, and to replace the stands with seats. Tickets purchased for the sold-out Laibach concert on September 11 should be exchanged for tickets with a seating order.
Therefore, we ask ticket holders to change them earlier, if possible, at the lower funicular station or in the Entrance pavilion at the Castle. It will not be possible to exchange all tickets on the day of the concert. Thank you for your understanding.
The concert by the group Laibach was planned as the opening event of the Dragon’s Fest, a traditional, diverse three-day event held on the Castle Hill. Due to the situation regarding the Covid epidemic, we have been forced to cancel most of the planned programme and postpone it until 2021. We will, however, go ahead with the Laibach concert as planned, thus marking the 40th anniversary of their creative work.
Laibach is one of Slovenia’s most renowned music groups, and is exceptionally well established in the international “alternative” or “independent” music scene. Their musical expression combines a range of genres, from experimental industrial sound to symphonic, so-called militant classicism and electronic music. The group is also a founder of the retro-avant-garde artistic direction (together with other groups from the artistic movement known under the name Neue Slowenische Kunst). From the very beginning, they have creatively included other media in their performances as well as music. Due to their uncompromising artistic attitude, as well as their penetrating analysis of the political ideology of totalitarianism, Laibach often had problems with their activities and were formally banned in the former Yugoslavia and Slovenia between 1983 and 1987.
The year 2020 will undoubtedly be something special for the group, as they are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their activities, and their performance at the Ljubljana Castle will mark this jubilee, as well.
