Lakeness Music Festival
The biggest music event in the Vipava Valley
The Youth Organization Renče–Vogrsko has set up a lovely waterside venue on the lake in Volčja Draga. Lakeness, as the site is called, is set amidst idyllic woodland. A couple of years ago it became the setting for a music, sports and entertainment festival that soon grew beyond its initial concept, becoming a summer highlight of the Vipava Valley.
The organizers put together a roster of attractive summer events designed to attract a varied audience of all ages to the lakeside venue. From the end of May to early September, the event focuses mainly on music acts. Weekend concerts bring a mix of jazz, rock, electronic music and acoustic acts, Slovenian evergreens, while also giving a chance to up-and-coming local bands.
The festival comprises sports activities such as stand up paddling and cycling through the Vipava Valley, as well as music workshops, cooking classes, a local crafts market and much more.
The festival gives special significance to the Vipava River. The waterfront is richer for a new music venue which can also host other festival events.
The highlight of the festival is the 4-day concert held in August with Slovenian and international music acts. Visitors of the concert will be provided a free camping spot.
In recent years, the Lakeness Festival jump started the pulse of the entertainment and cultural scene in the Vipava Valley.
