pre-opening event

28. 5. 2022, 22:00-01:00

Pritličje (Mestni trg 2, Ljubljana)

Event will be held in Slovene.

In cooperation with PlayOut and Out in Slovenia.

The pre-opening festival event will take us to the very heart, or backyard, of the headquarters of the Ljubljana Pride Association. It will take place in the atrium of the building where our office is located and where the annual plans of the Pride Parade festival are devised. The event is organised together with the iniciatives PlayOut and Out in Slovenia, which will also be hosting the LGBTIQ+ tennis tournament in Ljubljana at the time. At the cocktail stand, you can therefore see many tennis players cooling off after a hot match.

In addition to refreshments, rainbow stalls and a photo corner, the yard will be transformed into a dance floor by DJ Nina Belle, DJ msn gf and VJ RastrLAB. So get ready for a musical and visual extravaganza with interesting company and a variety of activities.

*Nina Kodrič aka NinaBelle is a DJ, producer, academic musician, music arranger and promoter of club events. She is also a member of the queer collective Ustanova, co-organiser of the Grounded Festival and one half of the duo Warrego Valles founded together with producer Nina Hudej in 2017. The duo have released two albums, an EP, a few singles and remixes on various compilations, etc. They perform at home and abroad, at various festivals, club events and elsewhere. NinaBelle’s sets are not limited to any genre or space, they are unpredictable and always in search of new sounds and trends in post-club electronic music.

*msn gf, a producer and DJ in search of new genre mutations, makes no distinction between club vibrations and radio waves. After her debut on the compilation ISKRA DELTA: Onboarding Soundscapes (with an accelerated adaptation of the Power Dancer’s ballad Prvič vem) and DJ performances at Cukrarna and Club Monokel, she is currently tensing her vocal cords and warming up processors with material for her first EP, from hyperpop to happy hardcore, with a strategic pinch of indigenous y2k nostalgia in the nightcore registry.

*Urša Čuk aka rastrLAB is a visual and digital artist, interested in various media, especially photography, graphic design, video and audio-visual projections. Her visualisations combine photographs, video and digital textures; she likes to move between retro and dystopian waves.
