Zeleno Sonce @Ljubljana (SLO)

Every 1st Friday of the month at Gala Hala, Ljubljana (SLO)

This event in Gala Hala is the reason why even the most dapper of scenesters brave the grit and grime of Metelkova City every first Friday of the month. The brainchild of local legends Jizah and Udo Brenner, Zeleno Sonce (Green Sun) started out in 2006 solely as a weekly radio show on Radio Student about rare groove, funk, jazz, soul and other similar genres but has gradually grown into one of the coolest, hippest and chillest parties around.

What makes it so special are the super-popular thematic dress codes, retro visualizations and decor, ever-changing guest DJs and the partygoers themselves who comprise a potpourri of people of different ages, subcultures and interests.
