BETRIB – Festival of Industrial Culture


BETRIB is a biennial festival of industrial culture that pays tribute to the traditions of Idrija, fosters a culture of pioneering and exploration, weaves bonds of camaraderie and solidarity, and intertwines the old with the new. In the premises of the former smelting plant of the Idrija mercury mine, it presents multimedia content combining musical performances, talks, workshops, exhibitions, and installations, to bring new reflections, provocative ideas, and ambitious forward-looking perspectives to Idrija's typical post-mining and industrial environment.

In the meantime, the festival's biennial performances are complemented by accompanying activities – mining house days, traditional construction workshops, and artistic residencies at the traditional Giser mining house.
