Welcome to Festival Lent 2020.

Discover and enjoy, meet and share happiness.
To ‘Lent’.
To live!
Festival Lent is a festival pleasuring life!

The story of Festival Lent is a story of evenings filled with the scent of summer, inviting us to meet and gather, outside, under the starry sky, among colourful lights, sounds, rhythms. To the banks of the Drava river that reflects dreamlike shapes straight out of fantasy, among the stands offering local delicacies, onto squares where one can meet friends, onto streets carrying a colourful river of visitors from all over the world. Into a city that breathes, pulses, lives!

From June 26th to July 4th 2020 at over 30 locations across Maribor.

This is not a festival. It is an experience!

The largest multicultural and multi-genre summer festival in this part of Europe is much more than just another summer festival. It is an experience in culture, get-together, enjoying the known and discovering the new. An experience in hospitality and fine cuisine. An experience of a lively, open and friendly town that invites you to take in its squares and streets for nine days and nights of pure festival magic. A festival that shares the love with those who love it with each event, offering a colourful programme of diverse and carefully selected experiences and plenty of opportunities for memories that will last a lifetime.

Festival Lent is based on much more than just big names and sold-out concert halls. It wants to offer visitors more than just a short escape from the mundane realities of everyday life. We believe that meeting and hanging out with people in a lively, friendly town and spending quality time with friends and family is the added value of Festival Lent we seem to forget all too often.

This is why Festival Lent wishes to encourage and connect each and every one who can in any way contribute to improving the quality of life in our town by bringing a diverse and well-rounded programme of cultural, culinary, and other experiences. 

The Festival Lent team remains true to their mission: allow the broadest possible audience to visit the best quality events and bring art and culture from closed halls out in the open, to town streets and squares.
