Love Festival 2010

Negova Castle, 23rd –25th April 2010
Love Festival is a mobile festival, each year visiting one of the castles of northeastern Slovenia. A condensed weekend programme provides the visitors with a blend of literature and other arts, particularly music and increasingly visual arts. The enthusiastic selection of events, both likeable and exquisite, aims to attract the greatest range of visitors possible, at the same time bringing the festival hustle and bustle to places often neglected in literary spheres. The Love Festival is special for its programme for children who also deserve to be offered a portion of literary treats.Production: KID Kibla, MariborFestival partners: Gornja Radgona  Culture, Tourism and Promotion InstitutePavelhaus - Article VII cultural association for Steiermark / Artikel-VII-Kulturverein für Steiermark
