Festival ljubezni was conceived as a travelling event that occupies on one spring weekend of every year one of the castles of north-eastern Slovenia, and breaths contents into it. It has stopped in Svečina and Ptuj, but in Negova, as even tramps occasionally do, it surrendered to the temptations of its cosiness two years ago.
In April, everybody who enjoys literary, music, visual and other creative surpluses and their most pleasant associations is invited to join us. The blend of this year’s weekend events presents top Slovenian literates and artists of all kinds. The literates will take the lead, presenting themselves in readings, poetry and prose duets, literary breakfasts and in-between occasions. Another constant of the festival is poetry-in-music, as well as an exhibition connected to one of the literary events.
Special attention is being paid to a parallel children’s program, with the aim of developing and encouraging the reading culture with the youngest, since they too deserve their share of literature, in the form of fairytale reading, puppet shows or creative workshops.
At the same time we wish to remind you of the cross-border love that the festival nurtures with Pavel’s house, where a special introductory program is presented on April 14th, while on the 18th you are invited for a literary trip to the nearby Graz.

Za:misel mobile bookstore
A constancy at the festival of love is the Za:misel mobile bookstore, where visitors are offered a wide selection of books by the presented literary creators, and naturally also other works related to the festival, as well as fairy tales and picture books for the festival's youngest guests.  

Book-o-theque – Book exchange
During the festival, Za:misel mobile bookstore encourages you to take any of your belletrism books that you no longer need, in exchange for another. The literary festival is right on cue for you to freshen up your book shelves and free the books that have been stuck there for too long.

Portrait for a charity Euro: Ciril Horjak – dr. Horowitz

Throughout the Sunday program, you will have the chance to have your portrait drawn by one of the top Slovenian illustrators, and make the day for the protegees of the Women's Counselling Crisis Center. With the help of your donations, they will be able to afford some of the things that most people consider an everyday indulgence, while to them it is virtually an out-of-reach treat.
