LIFE IS GREAT (ZIVOT JE SKVELY) FESTIVAL

The biggest student party (not only for students though) in Slovakia is regularly held at the end of May and this year will be no exception. Look forward to a festival that connects music, dance, film, motion and humanity. Come to have fun, meet a bunch of interesting people, support a good cause and celebrate life – because life is great (život je skvelý)! :)

LIFE IS GREAT (ZIVOT JE SKVELY): CONCEPT

This festival was organized for the past 20 years under the name “Bažant na Mlynoch.” This year, with a new concept, it has been given a new name. The previously organized one-day music event is becoming bigger in size and meaning, too! Expect a full multi-day multi-genre festival of music, dance, film, motion and humanity. You’ll be able to enjoy traditional open air concerts of the most popular but also less known Slovak bands, join film shows, taste 8 types of draught Czech beer from Lobkowicz brewery, test your sport skills and participate in charity.

A STUDENT PARTY NOT ONLY FOR STUDENTS

The event is called a „student party“ because it takes place in Mlynská Dolina – the largest complex of student homes and hostels in Central Europe. The number of students accommodated here represents about 10 000 – 15 000 people each year from all over Slovakia and abroad, reminding a smaller city. But of course you will find people of different age here.

CONCERTS & PARTIES

The whole program can be found on this page and still gets updated so check back for more info regularly. It is divided to sections according to the venue (the big parking lot, Unique Club, the lobby area of the main dormitory house and Musicat – a stylish pub nextdoor). So the navigation is really simple. If you want to know more about the specific band, you’ll find more information in the tabs Koncerty (concerts) or Žúrky (parties).

MOVIES

Some of the most discussed Slovak movies related to the political situation of the last decades will be screened during the festival. To watch them, you should be able to understand the local language at least a little, to have a full-fledged experience. The so-far announced titles include Čiara, Učiteľka, Únos or Mečiar.

HUMANITY

We love events that have a higher meaning. This festival is aiming for good as well – and if you participate, you have a chance to contribute to a good thing, too. Most of us are lucky to have a family and good health. But there are also people who do not live in such happiness. Therefore, people with a disability, i.e. special “ZŤP” card holders (ZŤP stands for zdravotne ťažko postihnutý, meaning disabled) will be free to enter the festival, and a parallel program for children from children’s homes will take place during the event. A mass blood donation will be run on the spot, and each donor will have free entrance to all the festival events. Because life is wonderful :)

HOW TO GET THERE

The best way is to take public transport as parking will be limited (the big parking lot will be used as a concert venue). Get off at the final stops of buses 31, 39 and 131 (the stop is called Slávičie údolie).
