June 18, 2019 – In the small oasis of Gljev near Sinj, we celebrate the first decade of Inland Dalmatia’s mini Woodstock. Maybe Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, and other greats in music history haven’t played at Kravarevac, but you never know what pearls are hidden in the multitude of young bands and artists who have the chance to play at the Gljevstok festival. Come and support them on their way to glory – because you certainly don’t want to be “the one loser that missed the best Gljevstok ever!”

Great music, hypnotizing intact nature and pleasant company – Gljevstok is an escape from the everyday bustle, back to the roots and the peace that can be had just steps away from the concrete jungle, under the starry night sky. 

Beside the campfire and until the late evening hours, let the notes and vocals of skilled bassists, guitarists, singers, and drummers take you into new dimensions of peace and harmony. The entrance is always free, and camping is even free in the nearby forest.

The organizers have prepared a vibrant program for all visitors, from the youngest to the younger.

The Mandala workshop or God’s Eye: (according to God’s eye or Ojo de Dios on Quemado Mountain, San Luis Potosi, Mexico) is a spiritual and votive object made of weaving yarn on a wooden cross. A few colors are often used. They are most often found in Mexican communities, among the indigenous and Catholic peoples. The ritual is a tool that is believed to protect those who pray, a magic object and the ancient cultural symbol. There is a limited number of entries (20 people).

For children aged 5 to 14, a creative workshop “Make Me Real” will be held. The youngest students will be able to learn about the birds in the Cetina region and how important they are for nature. The BIOM Association, in cooperation with the Gljevstok Association, will provide participants with all the necessary materials for making a three-dimensional model of a bird species you can find or create a butterfly model that will be a wonderful gift to mothers, granddaughters or festival visitors. Early applications are not required and a maximum of 15 participants can partake. Željko Ćurković will lead the workshop.

Workshop Performative Identity in Children: Various activities of performance expression in the form of entertaining games will be prepared for the youngest visitors. The activities serve to encourage children to communicate more comfortably in order to strengthen social inclusion. Through games, they will try to get closer to the importance of respecting individual work and evaluating everyone’s thinking, which leads to a stronger connection and functionality in group work. A series of short activities will also test their essential need for exploration and improvisation through new, creative solutions. Only the desire for good fun and new friendships is required from the participants. Maja Stojic, student of the Academy of Arts in Split, Department of Film and Video will adapt the games and other activities to the age and needs of all participants.
