About - Sharpe skip to Main Content

SHARPE music festival & conference is a new event in Bratislava where you can experience more than 25 concerts in two days, on 6 stages at the cultural centre Nová Cvernovka. SHARPE will have plenty to offer to fans including open-air performances, intimate unplugged” sessions or dark electronic sets.

Katarzia & Band, Ankathie Koi, Andrea Belfi, Diego, Fenster, Isama Zing, Tittingur, Zulu Zulu and many more will play at the first SHARPE edition in 2018. Get to know the Slovak and international scene at the unique space of former chemistry high school, now turned into a vibrant cultural centre in Bratislava.

Our mission is to create a platform to discover fresh music and introduce new promising artists which have a potential to break borders. We are not speaking about big headliners from major European festivals. At least not yeat. However, we firmly believe that also thanks to SHARPE, musicians can get an opportunity to be part of such big festival line-ups in the future.

While making the festival program, we seek for the highest quality and diversity, so that within two days you can listen to piano minimalism, energic live electronic music, African spirit, dreamy shoegaze, art rock, blues, urban melancholy, jazz, r’n’b and top Slovak songwriting.

A very important goal of SHARPE is to support and present the Slovak music scene. Hence, besides the festival visitors, the artists will have an opportunity to showcase their craft in front of international music professionals (promoters, labels or managers), form new contacts, relationships, future cooperations and get their music to new places.

SHARPE festival is accompanied by music conference, where music community can all get together in panels, lectures or interviews but also workshops, where music professionals will learn the latest about the industry strategies. It is possible to participate on a drum workshop with Andrea Belfi or scheduled meetings with other festivals’ ambassadors. There are representatives of ATC Live agency (Fink, Mac Demarco, Romare, Sleaford Mods) or Erased Tapes label (Kiasmos, Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds) participating on the the conference. You can also meet  a number of organizers and bookers of local or international festivals, such as MENT Ljubljana or Eurosonic Noorderslag.

Dive into the whole SHARPE buzz. We are looking forward to seeing you. All ticket categories can be found here.
