Aplication for the artists

Frivolus looking for street performers!

On the coast for the second time comes Frivolus - a festival of street artists who will be enchanted Koper and the local people. The four-day festival will be held from 7. to 10. September 2017 and will be open to all generations. The program is totally free and will be aimed at the general public, from the youngest to the oldest, from domestic to foreign visitors. The festival will host clowns, jugglers, magicians, acrobats, illusionists and much more ... the cherry on the cake will be the magical journey made by the sinfonia of the street musicians, which will play through all three days.

Yes, we are looking for you! Artistic soul who has a different view of the world. Soul who knows how to do magic, walk on ropes, bring fire, a soul that performs acrobatics on a trapeze, playing with balloons and turns them into creatures.

Our favourable location enables close cooperation with neighbouring cities, therefore we expect a positive response from neighbouring Italy and Croatia. During the festival we will host a big cruise ship with 2,300 passengers from all around the world.
