Završeno deveto izdanje BIG Fest-a u Baški!


Nakon dvogodišnje pauze, iščekivano deveto izdanje Baška International Guitar Festivala održalo se uz izuzetno bogati program i odličan odaziv publike!
Prema riječima i dojmovima samih izvođača, kompleks Sv. Lucije još jednom se pokazao kao savršena lokacija i kulisa za ovu manifestaciju! Posebnom ugođaju pridonijele su i nove programske smjernice koje, osim do sada uobičajenih koncertnih aktivnosti, izložbi i popratnih glazbenih radionica, uključuju i filmske projekcije glazbenih dokumentaraca, koje doprinose da cijeli kompleks Sv. Lucije zaživi u duhu festivala te ostavljajući prostora za nove ideje u programskom i organizacijskom smislu.
