MENT is an award-winning three-day festival of music discovery from Europe and further away. At its latest pre-COVID edition, 80 acts from 26 countries performed at various venues over three days. The international conference focuses on the music industry and creativity. In 2021 MENT moved to June and performed 9 consecutive concert evenings with an international program. In 2022, the festival returns to a three-day format with an international conference.

MENT Ljubljana is inviting European bands, solo performers and live acts with concert experience and publicly accessible audio and video material to perform at its eight edition (June 8–10, 2022).


“MENT Festival has gained a reputation of one of Europe’s most significant showcases – unconcerned by hype and far more likely to get it right by showcasing the weirdest, most thrilling acts.” – Fergal Kinney, LOUD AND QUIET MAGAZINE

“Its unpretentious, friendly and connected vibes create a true sense of collaboration, a challenge to Anglo-American cultural isolationism and something bigger than political posturing. MENT is the ‘European project’ in its truest sense – borderless, free and endlessly innovative. In this case, it is about music, but the ideals are so much more.” – James Thornhill, UNDER THE RADAR

Note from the organizers:

If, due to the current global situation, the organisation of MENT on the dates announced will not be possible or if it will be organised in a different format than anticipated, all applications will be valid for a postponed date or different format. All applicants will be notified of the results.
