International festival FeNS (festival of new stars)

FeNS is a traditional international music festival in Slovenia that is held every year in summer in Taverna, one of the most famous cultural sights in the old town centre of the port town of Koper. Every summer since 1996 the festival attracted into its ranks more than 1000 new artists. FeNS was always the first step for young performers and some of them later performed at the most famous festivals in Slovenia like Slovenska popevka, Melodije morja in sonca and even on the Eurosong.
In 2016, Koper will await the 21th edition of the festival organised by Agencija Plahutnik.

The primary objective of the festival is the promotion of young musical creativity and to give young performers the opportunity to show their vocal talent with their interpretation, to gain new experiences and make new friendships. The participants sing before a live audience and in front of the national television cameras and radio stations.

Festival unites the young and the young at heart, creates new friendships and rewards in 5 categories:
– Children (up to 9 years and 10-12 years)
– Teenagers (from 13-15 years)
– New Scene Fens (from 16-18 and 19-27 years).
