It can safely be said that during this festival Varaždin pulsates with the creative rhythm of the world. Špancirfest turns this city into the Capital of Music, the Kingdom of Theatre and the Empire of Beauty created by the hand of the artist. Streets and squares of the historic core in which the festival takes place become too small, for in addition to tens of thousands of visitors they are ruled by street artists and buskers.
The success of a festival is measured, among other things, against the degree to which it has become a part of its surroundings – and the folk of this city measure time by the period between two Špancirfests. They are simply a part of it, indeed they are the festival, and that is why this truly is the Festival of Good Vibrations in which artists and audience particpate equally. Since its inception the Festival has also been a space where traditional products and contemporary crafts are promoted along with other types of creative industries. Every year the festival introduces new attractions and programmes, the chief aim being that each visitor becomes its active participant and co-creator. And the only condition for that is a smile and good vibrations.
