What is it all about?

Fluxus festival can be described as a manifestation to break the routine and dive into unexpected; an adventure where the imagination takes over and everything becomes possible. The festival has been taking place since 2017 and is expected to attract over 5 000 visitors this year.

The festival organized by „Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022“ community programme Fluxus Labas! During the event, the participants dressed up in the most bizarre ways take over the Exhibition hill (lt.Parodos kalnas)  from the rushing cars, climbing their way up the street where the show begins: numerous communities and artists present their performances and various creative initiatives.

Open call for artists and performances

It is that time of the year – the festival is looking for professional artists and creators from various fields to enrich event with their performances!
