For the first time in its 20 year history, jazz, rock, pop and folk music master classes will be included in the Bled Festival. Until now this has been a classical music festival with students from around Europe attending master classes and performing in concert. This year Bled Festival will include workshops in other music genres with leading Slovene musicians.
