Guitar is life... and life is on Omis guitar fest !
Omiš guitar fest was established in 2010 with the idea to promote the guitar as the musical instrument, to achieve excellence, to value education and to become a place which will gather in April the world best guitarists and guitar enthusiasts who will enjoy their performances and lectures. Festival is unique because it embraces electric, acoustic and classical guitar.
Essential part of the festival is the competition which brings together children, youth and adults, men and women coming from different parts of the world, from different cultures, speaking different languages. They all have one thing in common – guitar. Apart the competition, Omiš Guitar Fest offers the possibility to attend the masterclassses held by the most respectable guitar professors and artists. Festival is the opportunity for the luthiers to exhibit their guitars and equipment, and for guitarists to try them in their own hands. Many book promotions, related to guitar art, have been organized at OGF. And last but not the least, top guitarists performed in Omiš: Carlo Marchione, Goran Krivokapić, Vlatko Stefanovski, Zele Lipovača, Vojin Kocić, Petar Čulić, David Dyakov, Ansambl Laurum, Francesco Scelzo and many, many others.
Number of participants grows from year to year and Omiš Guitar Fest very fast became the leading festival in South-East Europe and MUST VISIT event for all the guitar enthusiasts in April. Our intention is not to stop here, quite opposite, to grow even bigger and to be even better. Guitar is life… and life is on Omiš guitar fest!
