This year, the fourth annual Porto Etno Festival will once again live up to its nomadic reputation with completely new locations – from 1 to 3 October, the Croatian House of Culture in Sušak, the Neboder Hotel terrace, and the square outside the nearby School  will be the venues for meetings, music, and great food from all corners of the world.

Several formidable names from the contemporary ethno music scene have been announced for the festival’s musical line-up this year, including LADO Electro and Božo Vrećo, backed by the Porto Etno Orchestra,

Indigenous scents, flavours, songs and melodies of Istria and Kvarner are melded together with those from around the globe into a vibrant recipe for a multicultural and open city. The backbone of the Porto Etno festival is the ethno music and gastronomy of the countries whose minorities are active in Rijeka and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, as well as all the other world music and gastronomy that we encounter due to increasingly intense migration. We take the best of culture and nature and transform it into a spice that gives a new flavour to Rijeka. This creates new spaces for friendships, solidarity, and tolerance.
