BUBA has been organizing concerts since 1987, giving audiences access to alternative, innovative, progressive live music experiences. It promotes musical diversity and encourages the development of Slovene music scene.
As part of the ŠKUC Association Music Division, Buba is an independent agency that has been engaged in concert booking and record promotion from ’87 on. Buba covers a wide range of music genres, non-genre types, and styles such as art-, avant-, progressive-, indie-, jazz rock, crossover, avant pop, experimental, alternative, hip hop, electronica and their more or less similar varieties.
Buba started its activities as part of the worldwide celebrated Ljubljana Hard Core Kolektiv. After 2 years of promoting concerts that presented especially American hard core music (including the first among many Ljubljana appearances of the band Fugazi), it changed its name into HC Buba. In 1988 the Ljubljana Hard Core Kolektiv split up into Strip Core and HC Buba, so the new period began.
