Festival with the atmosphere of a barbecue gone wrong… FLAAM.
FLAAM is a boutique two-day (mostly) music festival taking place in Nitra, Slovakia. Founded in 2014 by a group of best friends, curious art fans, avid festival goers and some of the BEST people you’ll ever meet, it’s been slowly growing to be one of the most interesting and unique festivals in the country. While following footsteps of its bigger and older airfield-based festival siblings in incorporating all kinds of art into its DNA, we think that FLAAM is a unique festival beast of its own. Why?
BECAUSE IT’S OURS… no, seriously (but it is ONE of the reasons), FLAAM is unique because of its intimate atmosphere (the capacity is limited to 1000 visitors and all the stages are as close to the people as possible), playful approach (which other festival offers its visitors a 3 hour hike to a nearby mountain after partying all night?) and a courage to present fresh and audacious art. You name it – music, theatre, film, design, food, coffee, table tennis – anything people get passionate about could be a part of FLAAM. Except reggae. Unless it’s played by an Icelandic dreadhead techno producer on didgeridoo, we promise that no reggae will be played at FLAAM. EVER.

„If bigger Slovak festivals such as Pohoda or Grape organised an afterparty, it would look just like FLAAM.”
„If you've had enough of the huge airport festivals, FLAAM offers a great way to experience quality music in a homely atmosphere“
„Flaam is on its way to becoming one of the leading festivals on the Slovak scene.“
„I’d place Flaam on the level of bigger European festivals, as it’s organized well, the atmosphere is brilliant and frankly, I think there hasn’t been anything alike for young people in Nitra so far. It’s in a cool place, the line-up is always fresh and as an artist, who performed at numerous Czech and Slovak festivals, I liked the professional attitude and innovativeness above all. The organizers have brought a breath of fresh air and I think Flaam is an event that not only Nitra, but the whole region can be proud of.”
„Flaam attracts a great community of people who want to enjoy culture, and it doesn’t happen very often that an artist is cared for as well as he is here. We don’t want to miss out on places like this.”
