LUV Fest is a festival of love, art and rambling, which will take place in Ljubljana from 8 February, a day when the greatest Slovenian poet France Prešeren is commemorated, through to 12 March, when by tradition birds start their courtship.

Like the birds, you can enjoy the month of love, when you can also:

  • rest your eyes on the art installations scattered across Ljubljana, which will bring together young and old alike,
  • take pictures at the photo spots in the city to create unforgettable memories,
  • make beautiful souvenirs at the creative workshops,
  • treat yourself to some cultural experiences by visiting the many concerts, exhibitions and other events,
  • make a festival-themed gift of a culinary delicacy, without feeling guilty.

With the LUV Fest festival, we celebrate the love for our culture, our heritage, and the Slovenian language. Under the common theme of love, we present numerous cultural events in the city along with an engaging accompanying program. It's a festival encompassing all genres for all generations. During the festival, we aim for Ljubljana to become a space for discovery, learning, encountering, and coexisting with various cultures.
