CREScendo Music Festival
Attractive musical programme

The second CREScendo Music Festival, the ideal venue for everybody wanting to enjoy beautiful music, will take place on the 26th and 27th of June in the town of Cres on the island of the same name. After last year's successful debut the CREScendo Music Festival continues this year with performances by renowned Croatian and international musicians, adding to the list of other traditional events on the island of Cres.

Last year, the list of traditional events on the island of Cress – Evenings in Lubenice and Days of Frane Petrić – was joined by a new event, the CREScendo Music Festival, which will promote Croatian music and musicians, but also include performances by renowned international musical virtuosos. The festival will include two concerts on each day. On the 26th of June there will be performances by the jazz band Matija Dedić Trio and the Mildreds quintet; on the 27th of June there will be performances by the harmonica virtuoso Simone Zanchini, the contrabassist Žiga Golob, the drum player Kruno Levačić, and the band Joe&Maja Kolektiff.
After the programme, on both evenings there will be a midnight jam session by the participants of the festival. In pauses between the concerts, the visitors will have the opportunity to buy original products of the island of Cres and souvenirs of the CREScendo Music Festival.
This year, the festival will also include an exhibition of photographs of Cres whose authors are inhabitants and lovers of this island, adding a multidisciplinary character to this event and promoting the idea of its organiser that one type of art should promote another.
