ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
FESTIVAL is coming to RABAC
This year, for the first time ever, we are presenting the festival of life in Rabac, which will bring top quality entertainment to the streets and squares all summer long! Rabac will be transformed into a huge open-air stage from June 8th to August 31st. A diverse programme, great music and urban beats, cinema and theatre, special events and concerts will enhance the summer experience and create unforgettable moments for all visitors.
The festival’s motto is the celebration of life, the beauty of life and the little moments that come with it – and what better time than summer to do exactly that?
The hotel company Valamar Riviera has made its vision of “creating indelible memories for each and every guest” a reality by initiating the Rabac Open Air Festival and becoming its partner and main sponsor. Valamar’s properties on the coast of Rabac provide the perfect background for a majority of the festival events. The Rabac Open Air Festival is also supported by the Labin – Rabac Tourist Board, whose goal is to maintain the image of Rabac as one of Croatia’s leading tourism destinations.
The festival programme comprises four different categories: Street Performance, Street Music, Cinema and Theatre and Special Events.
Numerous street performances will take place during the festival so that everyone can find something they enjoy. Circus in the City – Performed by Cirkobalkana on Mondays will turn the entire city into a giant open-air circus. The streets will be teeming with jugglers, stilt walkers, acrobats and fire-eaters and the entire event will culminate in a final performance on the walkway by the lighthouse below the Valamar Sanfior Hotel. Enter a magical world inhabited by famous cartoon characters every Sunday and dance with a “real“ prince or princess at the Princess Ball.
The Cinema & Theatre programme will undoubtedly please all cinephiles since it offers an array of different genres. The edutainment programme Istra InSpirit is scheduled for Saturdays and provides entertainment for the entire family by showcasing all the specific features of both Rabac and Labin, ranging from myths and legends to cuisine.
We also have some special events in store for you after the official opening of the festival with Croatian rock bands providing entertainment twice in July and August!
Don’t miss out on an unforgettable summer experience!
See you in Rabac!
