The Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture’s Kitchen of Diversity flagship is announcing the Furioza Cycle musical programme and bringing some sublime female musicians to Rijeka. The citizens of Rijeka and their guests will embark on a musical trek through post-punk, goth, indie rock and techno… It should be noted that the overarching theme is music made by female musicians who push boundaries, challenge genres and construct new and exciting musical worlds.
Also, the Furioza Cycle is an attempt to allow the audience from the region to rediscover Rijeka and its stunning locations. For a while now, ever since the erstwhile Hartera Festival, rumour has it that Rijeka becomes deserted in the summer. We are building Furioza for all of us here, for those who have just moved here and for those visiting as tourists, looking for a different kind of city.
Many local enthusiasts have participated in the creation of Furioza, including male and female photographers and reporters, female camera operators, designers, retired women and students.
