Sharpe festival combines public performances with a conference, where the music professionals from all over Europe meet, learn from each other and discuss the latest topics from the music industry in panels, workshops, presentations and networking sessions.
In addition to the program, our aim is to improve also on the technological and ecological level. The most important change compared to the premiere edition of SHARPE, is that the whole festival and conference will be cashless. This means that only card payments will be accepted at all transaction points on the festival site. Thanks to contactless payments, we expect to reduce the waiting times at the entry, as well as at the bars and shops which will be open during the concerts and daily program.
“At Sharpe, we could feel the passion in every little aspect. The creative energy that is hosted within the walls of Nová Cvernovka and the energy and passion of people behind the event, literally made the air vibrate.” We intentionally pick and mention this particular reaction of the Luxembourg Radio 100.7 from the first year’s edition, because we believe that it is an appropriate reflection of our mission.
We seek for the highest quality and diversity when putting together the festival program, showcasing dreamy indie, heavy doom-sludge, jazz and world music influences, electronic minimalism or avant-garde and experimental music. Besides music, we aim to create a platform for education and networking, stimulate cooperation, export and growth of the Slovak independent scene and increase the international circulation of music repertoire.
We attempt to be thorough and passionate in every small detail and we hope, that you will be able to feel, see and hear it at SHARPE 2020.
