Description: 

Concerts outside the Jazz Cerkno festival programme have been organised since 1996, even though they've only been united within the Keltika festival since 2003. The name originates from the main road connecting towns and villages between Logatec and Bovec. It is a festival that never ends - it lasts all year long and offers on average two concerts a month. Concerts take place in Bar pr' Gabrijelu, outside on the square 'star plac' in the centre of Cerkno or at some other location in the town. The programme includes concerts of Slovene and foreign bands with a more advanced repertoire - the latter are often exclusive in Slovenia. The programme comprises various jazz genres, folk music implemented with contemporary approach and similar sonic challenges for music enthusiasts. There are plenty of fast and furious rock rhythms, especially by Slovene bands, to be heard as Keltika festival tends to sum up the seasonal goings-on at the lively national alternative and underground scenes. Beside rock and jazz Keltika festival also presents several other genres and blends, from ethno and funky to metal, blues, pop and electronic beats.
