Slovenia's festival culture

Jela Krecic writes that festivals are at the heart of cultural life in the summer season, pointing out that this is how festivals like the Trnfest, Sanje, Mladi Levi and the Days of Poetry and of Wine have established themselves. He adds that although such events can only be the product of voluntary commitment, they nonetheless urgently require more support from the government and the economic sector: "Culture has long since become a profitable asset that is continually gaining value on the market… Cities and communities all over Europe organise festivals so that people will get to know their region and perhaps come back, among other things because of the festival… However, up to now both Slovenia's economic sector and its tourist industry have failed to recognise the economic benefits of culture."
