ČrnFest is a festival of good music, theatre, sport, laughter and children’s revelry, which takes place for almost the whole month of August in the Old Town of Črnomelj. Every year, the young team of organisers (the Belokranjski Študentje Club, the Bit Youth Centre and the Youth Cultural Club of Bela krajina) transforms the sleepy and deserted castle atrium into a great venue full of good music, laughter and festival ambience.
The festival is full of concerts, stand-up nights, performances and workshops for the youngest children, and Thursday’s culturally inspired evenings.
In recent years, the festival has featured performances by Siddartha, Magnifico, Boris Kobal, Zlatko, Klemen Klemen, Elemental, Psihomodo Pop, Koala Voice, Tabu, Tadej Toš and many others. Over the years, a large number of young people have come and gone to help organise the festival, gaining a lot of experience along the way. Črnfest is based on the voluntary work of ambitious young people who care about the development of their local environment.
