SHINAFEST 2014: SEPTEMBER 11/12/13

LOCATION: IDRIJA, SLOVENIA

The program of Shinafest’s 5th edition is  completed. 5, an anniversary figure? Every Shinafest is a celebration. This year the festival is going to be smashing! Alphorns and noise jams, gambling and magic….. and …….
On Thursday, September 11 echoing alphorn sounds howling through the Idrian valley will announce the opening of Shinafest 5. These alphorns are played by the Berner (Switzerland) quartet ‘Alphorn Experience‘, who will perform a full concert on Friday, September 12. Butt don’t miss the other, equal interesting performances of Borut Kržišnik, Partija, Matej Ocepek, Dallas Kingston Kollektor and Bear Bones, Lay Low. Plus ‘Zelo Balatos‘, the heaviest and hardest ‘crème’ of Slovenian noise scene, crammed in a 60 minute jam. And of course some time to breath at ‘Shina Late Night‘.
