International music festival FeNS (festival of New Stars)
FeNS is a traditional international music festival in Slovenia, held every year in summer in Taverna, one of the most famous cultural sights in the old town centre of the port town of Koper. Every summer since 1996 the festival attracted into its ranks more than 1.500 young artists and thousands of their supporters.
FeNS is a perfect start for young performers to gain new experiences and make new connections and friendships. Many of FeNS participants later performed at the most famous festivals in Slovenia like Slovenska popevka, Melodije morja in sonca and even on Eurosong.
The primary objective of the festival is promotion and support to young musical creativity and to give young performers the opportunity to show their talents: with author music and lyrics and mostly their vocal interpretation, singing live on stage with audience, and to be promoted on national television and radio stations.
