Summer in the City is an umbrella name for the introductory programmes of the Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture project and other important cultural events taking place in the streets, squares, parks and cultural institutions of Rijeka, as well as other usual and unusual places.
The Furioza cycle brings socially engaged Croatian and international musicians to Rijeka, while the youngest visitors can enjoy the Tobogan children's festival with 40 different programmes, followed by the Sailor Sweet&Salt Music Festival with a number of well-known artists and a concert performance by the world-renowned Americana band Calexico, as well as the latest edition of the Porto Etno festival of music and food.
In cooperation with the Croatian National Theatre Ivan pl. Zajc, a portion of the Rijeka Summer Nights programme has also been included in the Summer in the City event and during the hot summer nights, the streets will become a venue for Spajalica – a series of art interventions in public spaces. Rijeka will also host the EASA, the biggest international assembly of architecture students, and will be one of the cities to host the 2nd Industrial Art Biennale.
The Summer in the City will be long and fantastic. For more information, visit the website ljetouprijestolnici.rijeka2020.eu
