The Ljubljana Festival is the main summer festival in Slovenia. One of the oldest festivals in Ljubljana, it has its roots in the first Tourist Week, organised by the Ljubljana Tourist Society in 1952. Since that time the festival has outgrown the character of a local tourist event featuring folklore, sport and economic activities, and has developed into a renowned international summer event which offers its ever-growing number of local and foreign visitors a variety of music, theatre and dance performances by leading domestic and international artists.
Between 70 and 80 events ranging from concerts of classical and jazz music, to performances of opera, theatre and ballet take place over the two months of the Ljubljana Festival, attracting a total audience of nearly 80,000 spectators.
