Deerhoof performance cancelled due to illness

We regret to inform you that Deerhoof, who were scheduled to perform at Kino Šiška on the opening night of the MENT Ljubljana festival, had to cancel their entire European tour due to illness. The band’s official statement reads: “We are terribly sorry to announce that because of serious pneumonia, we are not going to be able to travel to Europe, nor rock once we arrive. Prognosis is good, but for now please accept our apologies for not being able to make this tour that we were so looking forward to.”

The rest of the opening night programme remains unchanged and will feature British blues-beatbox duo Heymoonshaker, Norwegian rock trio Sauropod, Estonian guitarist Erki Pärnoja with his band and two local groups – indie rockers Koala Voice and the most alternative turbo-folk band, Leni Kravac. We are also looking for a suitable replacement for the vacated slot.

If they so choose, daily festival ticket holders for the first night of the festival can return their ticket at the Eventim outlet where it was purchased until 1. 2. 2017. If the ticket was purchased online, it can be returned via

Thank you for your understanding and have a nice day,
