1 – 4.06.2017 UMAG
Fifth year in a row, Croatia’s best little festival – Indirekt – is digging deep into your emotions whilst revealing some of the ‘best kept’ musical secrets in Europe. The team behind Indirekt Music&Art Festival started their search in 2013. and since has brought over 50 acts – both music and arts – in Umag, a little town on the western coast of Istria. The goal is to connect with the region as well as to create a network for all you indie souls out there.
This is not all – more music and arts acts are soon to be announced.
Indirekt, the lighthouse of independent art.
The first indie festival in Istria held third year in a row with unique atmosphere which erases boundaries between audience and performers.
This art&music festival will host the best regional independent artists. The first day is reserved for soft and relaxing melodies from local and foreign singers and songwriters followed by a club program, a dancing electro-indie warm-up for Saturday. The second day will be marked by the performance of the best regional indie bands and a DJ set.
Daylong art program will link these two evenings, which will be conducted by well known street artists and masters of comics.
From 1st to 4th of June 2017.
In Umag. The concept and objective of the festival is to animate the whole town for two days. While the center of the town will be the focus point of the street art happenings and exhibitions the music part will be held on several carefully chosen locations. Indirekt festival is going to be held from 1st – 4th June 2017, at Kamp Veli Jože in Savudrija, Umag. Picture this: a pine wood forest, close to the see, with a light breeze brushing your cheek…need we say more?
Indirekt, as a “lighthouse of independent art”, offers the possibility to perspective and high-quality independent artists to present their work to the audience which never had a chance to get to know or hear them. Indirekt, a set of ideas and ideals focused on raising the quality music and art awareness, aims to insert a town, Umag, on a regional music map.
