The 2nd Terraneo eco-music festival starts today (Tues) in the coastal town of Sibenik. The four day long event brings together a selection of international and Croatian bands with performers such as The Roots, Thievery Corporation live, The xx, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Vaccines, Wild Beasts, Friendly Fires, Groove Armada (DJ Set), Parov Stelar Band, The Ting Tings, Elemental, Djecaci, Goribor, Zoambo Zoet Workestrao, Cinkus and many more.
Terraneo Festival's ecological programme will be divided into three parts: Eco Actions, Eco Art and Eco Smart programmes. The first environmental action of this year’s festival, the clean-up of the Fort of St. Nicolas in Sibenik, was held end of May by the local fire brigade and a host of volunteers. The Eco Smart programme will be held during the festival and it is featuring a series of creative workshops, exhibitions, lectures and film screenings all aimed at producing eco-friendly ideas. The Eco Art programme brings together ecology and art.
According to estimations based on bookings, organizers expect 30 per cent more guests than last year, with around 50 thousand people from all parts of Europe attending. "Last year, the city was not prepared for the tourist stampede caused by Terraneo, but this year we are well prepared," said the director of Sibenik Tourist Board Dino Karadole to Sibenski portal.
