How to Spend your Summer in … Posočje
For all fans of electronic music, metal, punk and reggae — an eventful sports program.
In a series of events, Tolmin became a venue for the youth festivals. It is famous for its picturesque landscape at the confluence of the Tolminka and the Soča rivers and is annually flooded with music lovers for one and a half month.
This year a series of events will open the festival of electronic dance music Halamoye (from 8 to 10 July), which will become a certain opening ceremony of the bright summer music season in Tolmin. The rock concert held in June (rockerski žur Gora Rocka) can be considered as an overture. The creative camp Sajeta will be next to support the Halamoye initiative (from 11 to 17 July). Then the time comes again for Metaldays (from 24 to 30 July) — the largest open air music festival in Slovenia, which is regularly visited by 12 000 performers of heavy metal music from all over the world.
The event will be saturated with passion for a long time because from 9 to 12 August, Tolmin will host rebels — the participants of the Punk Rock Holiday. The reggae rhythms performed as part of the Overjam International Reggae Festival (from 15 to 20 August) will be the final stage of the beautiful music events cycle.
One cannot ignore the Soča Outdoor sports festival, which is a part of the eventful music program. Its organizers decided to hold this festival from Bovca to Tolmin during the May–July period. At this time, the calendar shows 24 sports events.
