§ Pre-fest & post-fest dates around the festival: 1st/2nd + 5th/6th/7th June (more info below*).

Zasavje Noisefest International (ZNFI), Vol. 3, once again brings a substantial list of international performers and noise artists from all over the world to show their craft at the industrial venue – decommissioned coal-miners-washroom called “vašhava”. On both days, 3rd and 4th June, the place is going to rumble under the intense pressure of sound frequencies, with added visual effect of the space itself, i.e. the chains hanging/dropping down from the high-constructed ceiling.
The festival is unique for a simple reason that it brings together various actors from all around the globe, to the industrial setting that is specific to the environment/region that we live in.
The setting invokes the ‘noise’ and industrial aesthetics by its own definition, and with the annual ZNFI festival we just bring the sound and noise into/unto it.
Various performers are brought together from the fields of noise/experimental/(dark) ambient/industrial/power electronics/performing noise arts/actionism and other subgenres of the experimental/noise world.
—————————————————————————–
We invite You to come to the fest and join the noise uproar in the forthcoming June.

◙ ▬▬▬► Ticket discount prices: Both one-day and two-day tickets for the ZNFI 2016 can be purchased/ordered/reserved at the above locations for all the visitors coming to the pre-fest shows (from 1st – 2nd June) for a discount price (Both days: € 20 / Friday € 10 / Saturday: € 10) , and if you have ticket and want to join the post-fest shows also, you have free entrance with it (usually if there is any kind of entrance fee, on the above post-fest locations/venues, it is just free donations).

Main ZNFI festival program at Vašhava RTH (The Black Room) is going to present several noise projects, among the slovenian local bands/projects, notorious and blasting grindcore band from Nova Gorica, EXTREME SMOKE 57; experimental black metal noise duo SNØGG from Velenje; THE B. BEES, experimental duo based in Ljubljana w/ Jaka Berger & Vitja Balžalorski; local hardcore/noise performer UMDHLEBI from Koper etc.

There are a few specifically distinct acts/names from other countries like Italy, among them IOIOI, LAMETAFISICA, MARE DI DIRAC, UK acts like: BRUT, DRY GREED, ANIMAL MACHINE, belgian acts like KINDVRIENDELIJK, LIJEL, etc. For example, at Brut, we are confronted with audio-visual live actionism performance, project of Sonia Dietrich, fuelling the performance with intense visuals and vivid physical performance, conceptually opening the questions of the female body narrative, its control and manipulations/mutilations. Moving to Animal Machine from UK, who has collaborated with many different noise artists around the world, bringing out in his performances the intense noise experience with the sound he generates, coupled with visual elements of metal-noise visual feel, sonically delivering the utter blast and fresh energy to the noise performance. Continuing with VELGE NATURLIG, the representative from Portugal who works quite a lot on ambient and experimental sounds/soundscapes, and brings to the fore the ambient substance and contemplative elements to the overall sonic experience, combining it with abstract visuals.
The whole line-up of the 2016 ZNFI festival brings to the plate, strong and quite a specific set of various performers, each autonomously standing on their own ground and we can be convinced that none will fall short in delivering the final goods to the listener/audience.
Let us also mention CRANK STURGEON from USA, who already performed on the 1st edition of the festival in 2014, delivering the complete dosage of interactive and poetic inserts into his performances that usually unequivocally leave imprint on the visitor/listener. And one and only ZAN HOFFMAN (ZANSTONES/BODYCOCKTAIL) from USA, performer/singer, who is strikingly amusing and immersive in his ways of dealing with the listeners, and who is going to knock you off your feet with his wittiness – a perfect match for those who visit bars and those obsessed with drinking fresh cocktails.
ZNFI festival is the platform/medium, opening up the space for a concrete and direct exchange between performers and listeners, sharing the knowledge, enjoyment and enthusiasm among the lovers of experimental sound and noise.
Welcome to the ZNFI 2016 and join us in the noisy adventure in the forthcoming June.
