The Slovenia Times

Poetry and music festival kicking off in Goriška Brda


The opening evening will feature performances by singer-songwriters Rudi Bučar and Jani Kovačič and punk-rock band Ana Pupedan, and a poetry reading.

The 16th Dreams in Medana festival, organised by the Ljubljana-based publisher Sanje, is entitled Book and Wine Nights and will host several Slovenian poets and other artists, as well as foreign guests, such as poet Marko Tomaš from Bosnia-Herzegovina, and poet Milan Rakovac and musician Tamara Obrovac from Croatia.

Each festival evening will feature a four-hour programme and will be complemented by wines from Slovenian vineyards. The festival will also host acclaimed Slovenian stand up comedian Boštjan Gorenc - Pižama and a socially critical poet, theatre director and actor Andrej Rozman - Roza.

A music documentary by Petra Seliškar My World Is Upside Down will be screened as part of the festival.

The programme for children will take place in the nearby village of Šmartno, where a fairytale village will be set up on Saturday.

A novelty this year is a poetry-reading tour of wine cellars dubbed Path of Poetry and Wine.

The literary festival, which moved from Ljubljana to the village of Medana in Goriška Brda in 2010, will conclude on Sunday.
