Klub Swenak, located at the outskirts of Idrija, was established in 1997 and functions within the framework of the Idrija Student Club. The venue hosts concerts of alternative music by established and upcoming artists (Broken Lock, Ana Pupedan, New Wave Syria, and others), theatre plays, shows, lectures, dance and art workshops. It regularly hosts the traditional Club Marathon, organised by Radio Študent (RŠ).

The name of the club comes from a modification of the Slovenian word for “pigsty”. It is inherited by the building’s interesting history: under the Italian government they used it to breed pigs for the army, later for supplying the nearby psychiatric hospital.
