Lovers of singing, dancing and funny masks are bound to have a good time in Rabac this Saturday. The traditional summer carnival and the Rabac lungomare will kick off the second Rabac Open Air Festival. The festival’s eventful programme, which is completely free of charge, will last until August 30th and provide visitors of all ages with diverse entertainment for an unforgettable long, hot summer.
Over two months, the festival that attracted more than 26.000 visitors last year, will make Rabac a must-visit summer destination for all fans of music, theatre and other entertaining summer events. The festivities commence on June 16th at 6:30 pm when a number of carnival groups from Istria and Kvarner will gather outside Hotel Narcis and form a parade along with the ever-popular “bell-ringers“ (“zvončari“) that will pass through the Rabac lungomare on the way to the Riva. All carnival participants will be introduced at 7:30 pm on the Riva and the fun will continue well into the night on the Marina Sunny Hotel terrace with the band Maestral. The Summer Carnival is organized by the “Labinjonska Kompanija, Domoća Folšarija“ and is supported by the Labin-Rabac Tourist Board, while the eventful programme of the Rabac Open Air Festival is provided by Valamar in cooperation with the sponsors, the hosts Town of Labin and the Labin–Rabac Tourist Board as well as the MPG company, the festival’s organizer.
Rabac Open Air festival’s music programme begins on July 6th with a performance by the cult Croatian rock band Psihomodo Pop. The beloved Croatian rockers will thoroughly “rock“ the crowd in Rabac and kick off a happy festival summer. The Frajle will close the Rabac Open Air Festival by showcasing their unique style to the audience in Rabac on August 24th and providing a memorable concert performance.
