Aside from gaining knowledge, skills and experience, the aim of masterclasses is also to connect visual installations, space and different artforms and present them on Floating castle Festival in days 27th till 30th July. Depending on the workshop, this can be moving installation, short show, intervention, concert.

The municipality of Loška Valley lies on the southern edge of Slovenia, about 60 km from Ljubljana.

The hilly, mostly forested landscape, the mysterious karst world and the rich history of the Loška Valley offers many surprising experiences, but at the same time the deep peace and serenity of its remoteness. 

Combining jams and workshops with musicians from all over the world, embraced by trees, great atmosphere and lovely crew of cooks. We’ll organise bar, all kinds of extra artistic and performative activities and other fancy extra things. Limited access to phone signal and electricity, so we suggest that you bring a powerbank with you. Unlimited access to tunes.


Great cooks from Cat’s hill. 3 meals per day (alleater, vegetarian and vegan friendly food)

PROGRAM (can differ for each workshop):

Breakfast, workshops from 10.00 to 13.30, lunch, siesta, workshops from 16:30 to 19.30, dinner, evening activities (jam nights, puppet shows, dance evenings, concerts, etc.). 

APPLICATIONS DEADLINE: 15th of April (but can be prolonged)


FC Masterclasses are not for the weak! There is nature camping, unpredictable weather, all night jams, touring, live bears, last minute program changes and all sorts of logistical conundrums. Beware and be ready ;) 

P.S. We are not kidding
