Kino Šiška is known for its two top-notch concert venues, the larger Katedrala Hall and its little sister Komuna Hall. But just as important for MENT are its multipurpose lobbies on the ground and first floor. Kino Šiška has been the central Slovenian institution of the contemporary concert scene since 2009, complemented by activities in visual and performing arts. It hosts more than 300 events with over 100,000 visitors a year. United brands of Kino Šiška have become part of the distinctive cultural image of Slovenia: the MENT Ljubljana festival and conference, the DobraVaga gallery, the CoFestival international festival of contemporary dance, the Tinta international comics festival and the first primary and secondary school band league in Slovenia Špil liga.

Masarykova 24

Metelkova City is an autonomous social and cultural center with a rich historic heritage and unique aesthetic. It is widely considered one of the most important venues dedicated to youth and independent culture in Slovenia. With its relaxed atmosphere, visible artistic expression and musical diversity, it contributes immensely to downtown Ljubljana. MENT Festival takes place in the clubs Channel Zero, Gala hala, Klub Gromka and Menza pri Koritu.

AKC Metelkova mesto

For the past two decades, the largest club of Metelkova has been a hub for independent music production. Gala hala is home to stylistically diverse DJ nights, hip hop parties, workshops, international concerts and countless other music events. Also, a midsummer visit of Gala's summer garden is a must.

AKC Metelkova mesto

Established in 1993, Metelkova's most dancefloor-oriented club is home to late-night raves and boundless guitar sounds. Channel Zero is famous for its bass-friendly sound system, but it also has a mezzanine that offers a bird's-eye view of the stage and dance floor.

AKC Metelkova mesto

Punk, hardcore, sludge… the hardest and most resistant genres thrive at Gromka. But this is in fact a club with an extremely diverse program that also includes free improvisation and jazz nights, literary evenings and alternative theater.

The legendary column in the middle of Menza's stage should by now be part of Slovenia's cultural heritage. Who knows how many pole dance routines by musicians from all around the world have been performed on this mythical piece of metal. Menza is a club that supports the independent, the informal and the peculiar.

Slomškova 18

Once a revolutionary factory, today a producer of culture. This stunning technical monument is one of the few examples of industrial age architecture in Slovenia- The venue is mainly focused on theater productions, this is what makes the rare musical events even more special.

MENT is finally back at the Castle! Ljubljana Castle is a magic place on its own. But during MENT, the sound of music playing down the halls and corridors of this magnificent site makes for an even more rewarding experience. In 2024, we'll be MENTing in Skalna dvorana (“Rocky Hall”), Ljubljana's most eye-catching jazz club, the larger Hribar hall, the more intimate venue Gledališče (“Theater”) and the spellbinding Kapela (“Chapel”).

Grablovičeva 1

For the past 29 years, Orto has been the heart of Ljubljana's rock scene. However, the club also takes care of metalheads, hip hop fans, psytrancers and lovers of softer sounds. The concert venue upstairs and the larger hall on the ground floor make it a perfect setting for MENT.

Kersnikova 4

Klub K4 is the most important basement in Ljubljana for more than 3 decades. With its vast number of curated nights that include local crews, new talents and international superstars from techno, house, trap, electro and other scenes, K4 is something worth experiencing.

Kersnikova 4

Zorica is a fresh Ljubljana bar with a large terrace, opened in the summer of 2021 just above the legendary club K4 with which it is directly connected via a staircase. It is an outdoor and indoor venue for DJ nights, concerts, clothing and vinyl markets, presentations and a variety of new event series, which serves as an extension or, if you will, “younger sister” of the adjacent club. Together with a hostel operating just above the two venues, the complex known as  Lok4cija marks a new chapter in the history of the legendary address on Kersnikova 4.
