Podium festival is a modern, sophisticated musical landscape that lives outside fixed conventions; it is a mobile network of people all across Europe sharing a common vision.
Podium is therefore a chamber music festival that has been successfully thriving for eight years now and been hosted in six different countries: Germany, Austria, Norway, Spain and Iceland. In Croatia, Podium Festival has been taking place from 2015. The Festival is a stage of cultural innovations that welcomes enthusiasts of various spheres and affinities, let them be musical, organisational, designing or artistic in any possible way.
The source and drive of the “Podium idea” is the open cooperation between all arts and other subsidiary activities, that are essential for the existence of this Idea. The dynamical musical design is accentuated precisely through this type of live network.
Our goal is to build a bridge between tradition and innovation, consequently to befriend contemporary artists with the ones that have been performed for years or centuries. We aim at combining eyesight and hearing, as visual animation, light effects, quality classical music and curiously installed stages. In this fresh and interesting way, we want to expand this interaction between performers and listeners.
Podium Festival Brijuni/Fažana will take place at an island Veliki Brijun and in Fažana as a six musical-incidental manifestation of the Podium festival chain, from 25th to 31th of July 2016 thanks to the help of Brijuni National Park and Fažana municipality.
