Tired but exceedingly happy, those were our feelings right after the Sharpe Festival & Conference 2023. Therefore, let us express a massive thank you from the team at the Sharpe 2023. We are glad for each person, who came and co-created our “sharpe” atmosphere once again.
Great thanks goes also to all the performing artists, conference speakers, delegates, journalists, photographers, team of technicians, sound engineers, lighting engineers and all the team members, who participated in the realization and ensured the great course of the festival.
It was such a joy to come together in the premises of Nová Cvernovka and celebrate live music, art, culture and music industry expertise on 6+1 stages with more than 60 music acts and 11 conference panels. The festival hosted bands and performers from countries such as United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Slovenia, Lithuania, Croatia, Austria, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Hungary and of course many talented local musicians based in Slovakia. The conference took upon themes of music being an international language and powerful tool, monetization in digital streaming nowadays and both hilarious as well as interesting keynote interviews with Stephen Budd or Vlado Meller.
Last but not least, major thanks also goes to our partners. Due to their support, this edition of the Sharpe festival & conference could be a quality cultural experience.
