Gljevstok: The Music Festival Of Sinj

We all should be aware that Croatia is quickly becoming the music festival capital of Europe. From various festivals in Zagreb, Pag, Tisno, and Split, it's no wonder their successes are encouraging many to begin festivals of their own. This brings us to Gljevstock, the music festival of Sinj. The first Gljevstock was held in 2010, starting out as an informal music event where members of the Sinj music community would gather together to hang out. Gljevstock quickly gained a following from there, and soon began drawing in much larger audiences.

Come 2011, the Gljevstock organization was overtaken by the Sinj Artistic Commune Association, where a higher quality sound system was provided, a stage, food, drinks, and promotion helped to bring the festival to a larger scale. In 2012, popularity greatly rose, and bands from all over Croatia were lining up to perform.

The purpose of Gljevstock is to simply hang out with the good people around you, listen to some qualtiy music from around the region, and feel fully free. The bands at Gljevstock do not compete with each other, but rather compliment one another. In the past, bothing camping and ticket sales have been free.

Gljevstock exists for the music and the people. It is alive to give you the opportunity to engage with others arround you, and to find fresh music that you can bring back to your friends. Gljevstock is simple, and we can't wait to share this experience with you!

This year's lineup includes: Sara Renar, Repassage, M.O.R.T., Darkvud, Shewa, Jare, Underdog, Bekdors, Novi dan, Bluz, Jagoda, and OČ. The festival is held on Saturday, May 28th, beginning at 15.00. You can find out more info about Gljevstock here!
