In Events, Fresh news, News on

IMT SMILE, LÚČNICA, ŠTEFAN ŠTEC, AND MIRO JAROŠ TO PERFORM AT THE GORAL FOLKLORE FESTIVAL

The traditions of the Gorals will be showcased in the picturesque village of Ždiar, offering a creative program filled with well-known faces as well as traditional local Goral artists.

 

The Gorals will visit Bachledka to introduce visitors to their culture, history, and crafts. In addition to the traditional local culture, visitors can look forward to a star-studded program.

 

IMT SMILE, LÚČNICA, MIRO JAROŠ, KRISTÍNA & SOKOLY, ŠTEFAN ŠTEC, and Cimbalkovo will be guests at the Goral festival held 1200 meters above sea level at Bachledka. Children can also look forward to concerts by Hopi, Cupi & Lupi, and Miško with Líška.

 

In the first half of August, all Gorals will gather at Bachledka to celebrate their festival together from August 9 to 11. This year marks the 28th edition of the Goral Folklore Festival, held at 1200 meters above sea level, right at the entrance to the Treetop Walk.

All lovers of this exceptional Slovak culture will enjoy their time at Bachledka. The organizers have prepared demonstrations of both old and contemporary crafts from Ždiar. Farmers from surrounding villages will bring domestic animals, allowing families to feed sheep and cows, taste local dairy specialties, or ride a Goral horse.

 

IMT SMILE AND KRISTÍNA WITH A TOUCH OF GORAL CULTURE

The event will feature traditional Goral artists who will offer an experience of folklore, dances, and songs. Goral culture will alternate with contemporary performances, including a special joint concert by Kristína and Sokolov, and folk music lovers will enjoy performances by Lúčnica and the folk music of Štefan Štec. An extraordinary moment will be the combination of cimbalom tones and children’s folk performers from all over Slovakia in the new family project Cimbalkovo, led by artists from Cimbal Brothers and talented children, all directed by Veronika Hatala, who is also the traditional host of the entire event.

 

AN EXCEPTIONAL IMT SMILE CONCERT IN AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE

 

It is rare for audiences to experience a concert by Slovakia’s most successful band, IMT Smile, at a festival outside of their tour. Therefore, Ivan Tásler and his band’s participation at Bachledka is a unique opportunity for all fans of their music. You simply cannot miss the IMT Smile concert.

MIRO JAROŠ TO VISIT BACHLEDKA

At almost 1200 meters above sea level, beloved children’s performers will alternate with local theater groups and children’s folk ensembles. Miro Jaroš, Cupi & Lupi, Hopi, and Miško with Líška will prepare an extraordinary experience for children.

SUNDAY WILL BELONG TO THE VILLAGE

The program on Sunday will focus mainly on local artists. It will open with a holy mass, followed by a day full of enchanting Goral folklore and history.

WOODCARVERS AND STRAW SCULPTORS

Visitors can also enjoy a woodcarving symposium, where Goral symbols and nature will be carved from wood. Additionally, new straw sculptures of Goral children will be added to the 4-meter-tall Goral and Goralka created by an artist in previous years.
