Art, dance and sustainability are only part of the 6th edition of the Welcome Spring Festival, which opens the festival season in Zagreb on Monday, April 29. This year's festival brings plenty of interactive workshops, interesting lectures, Olympiads and musical performances that will last seven days, until May 5, on the meadow between Hrvatske bratska zajedna street and Vukovarska street (near the Route 66 club).

At the opening, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in the celebration of World Dance Day in dynamic dance workshops, and throughout the week enjoy the performances of colorful bands: Klapanx, Neki Novi Klinci Trio and Balašević's laganice, Kaira Kela and Commi Balde, the energetic Terminator and the fierce The Plagiators.

On Tuesday, 30.4. everyone is welcome to the super fun Little Olympics of Waste with celebrities from 4 p.m. A team of the bravest, Marina Orsag, Neda Parmać, and Marko Braić, will arrive at the competition, who will test their strength against the young people on whom the future rests. Come support them and see how they did.

In addition to musical pleasures, the festival offers a rich program of educational workshops and lectures on the topics of recycling, reuse, art and sustainability. From Krapin's primitive man to renewable energy sources or why the bicycle is the most ecological means of transport, you will hear all this on the festival's spring meadow, and you can test your virtue, speed and knowledge at the Olympics. There will also be plenty of creative and performances for the youngest, and there will be talks about climate change and the mental health of young people.
