Located in the UNESCO-protected and picturesque Bay of Kotor, Porto Montenegro is already known as a hub of year-round culture, events, concerts and festivals. Rubix, is a window into the next phase of activity and creative vision within the marina village, and is the perfect occasion to bring together those who know and love the destination, as well as attracting newcomers, to experience the festival.

Creative fulfilment and self-reconnection are at the heart of Rubix Festival, and its location – the world-renowned Porto Montenegro – provides a hub of imagination, inspiration, exploration and relaxation. The first ever Rubix, is set to take place just a few months before the launch of Synchro, a new neighbourhood in the luxury lifestyle destination, within a beach setting and situated in close proximity to the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club. With the final works now underway, Synchro will offer a five-star hotel, spa and private residences, plus a major events and entertainment centre. A wide-ranging lifestyle and leisure programme presents a neighbourhood of cultural vibrancy and creative fulfilment. Synchro will also offer a collection of rhythmic spaces that focus on fuelling self-enrichment and nourishing the soul, which is at the heart of Porto Montenegro.

With its exquisite views of Boka Bay, the housing of the festival arena within the marina village offers a unique setting. The biggest performers will be found on the main ‘Synchro Stage’, with various other key zones surrounding it, including: an exhibition space, workshop areas, a chill zone, and a technology corner and observation tower.

Whether looking to reconnect with an old passion, improve on existing artistic endeavours, or to try something new, Rubix offers everyone the chance to expand creatively, and discover new possibilities. Festival-goers can witness the creation of art through immersive performances; enjoy the diverse, global, music spectrum through live artists; engage in the process of learning and creativity through hands-on workshops; indulge in exotic cuisine with feasting experiences; and collect unique, handmade keepsakes through the festival’s artisanal marketplace. The festival hopes to unlock the creative potential of every individual, by providing an inspiring space to connect, learn and grow.
