SHARPE music festival & conference combines public performances of promising Slovak and international artists of various genres with a conference, where the music professionals from all over Europe meet, learn from each other and discuss the latest topics from the music industry in panels, workshops, presentations, and networking sessions.
“At Sharpe, we could feel the passion in every little aspect. The creative energy that is hosted within the walls of Nová Cvernovka and the energy and passion of people behind the event, literally made the air vibrate.” We intentionally pick and mention this particular reaction of the Luxembourg Radio 100.7 from the first year’s edition, because we believe that it is an appropriate reflection of our mission.
We seek for the highest quality and diversity when putting together the festival program, showcasing dreamy indie, heavy doom-sludge, jazz and world music influences, electronic minimalism or avant-garde and experimental music. Besides music, we aim to create a platform for education and networking, stimulate cooperation, export and growth of the Slovak independent scene and increase the international circulation of music repertoire.
