51ST TROGIR CULTURAL SUMMER IS HERE WITH VIBRANT TWO-MONTH PROGRAM!
The 51st Trogir Cultural Summer program is here! Although the fight against the pandemic and its limitations, the City of Trogir and the Trogir Tourist Board have prepared a vibrant two-month program that represents an additional step forward in quality and diversity.
“Last year, we wanted to celebrate our great jubilee, the 50th Trogir Summer, much more solemnly and meaningfully. Unfortunately, circumstances prevented us, but with this year’s program, we are trying to restore the splendor of our event within the given framework and make up for what the audience had to miss. In the hope that all this is behind us, we have been working on the list of performers for the past few months, and we believe that we have one of the best programs in Dalmatia,” said Viktor Novak, Deputy Mayor of Trogir in charge of tourism.
In the 60 days of the Trogir Cultural Summer, concerts, plays, festivals will be held at several locations in the city. As in previous years, the UNESCO city will have a unique program.
On Sunday, June 20, the event began with a spectacle in the Kamerlengo Tower – “Rock the Opera,” which offered the greatest rock hits performed by the Zagreb Philharmonic. It was an exclusive event in only two other locations on the coast, apart from Trogir. Massimo, currently the most popular local musician and Porin winner for the hit of the year, will hold a concert in the main town square and be in charge of the summer’s grand opening on July 8. Opera Selecta, a unique cultural festival and brand of the Trogir summer, celebrates its 13th edition in July. This year, in addition to opera performances, it brings a fashion show to Trogir.
Another festival that is becoming a tradition in the town is KulaKula, which will launch its fourth edition this year on August 4, 6, and 7. The popular electronic music festival Moondance is also returning (July 30-August 1). Trogir and their guests will be entertained by Let 3 and Psihomodo Pop (July 2), Vlatko Stefanovski (July 9), Cambi (July 17), Crvena Jabuka (July 24), and Mostar Sevdah Reunion (August 9), as well as a handful of plays.
“I believe that we have satisfied many tastes and that all performers have a sign of quality. We are proud of this year’s program, and we believe that all events will be well attended, both due to the good selection and because our locals and their guests wanted fun. Of course, all events are outdoors, and each event will occur according to the conditions and rules issued by the competent institutions. The Civil Protection Headquarters of the City of Trogir will be supportive of complying with measures and primarily all good for the health and safety of visitors,” concluded Novak.
Tickets for all major events can also be purchased at the Trogir Tourist Board on the main square.
