The 3-day festival and conference, focused on presentation of current music production, networking and the music industry, will host over 40 performers from Slovenia, the region and elsewhere, while the conference itself will host over 200 delegates; a significant number will be from Slovenia and the territory of the former Yugoslav republics, who will be joined by many representatives of foreign festivals, record labels, concert organizers and other music industry professionals.

In 2014 MENT Ljubljana has been operating as a platform, which was successfully introduced at the Zagreb INmusic festival and has been developing partnerships with similar festivals throughout Europe, such as recently concluded Reeperbahn in Germany. Between 2nd and 4th October a delegation of MENT representatives will be present at the Waves Vienna festival, which will introduce three Slovene performers: Nikki Louder, Oknai and Your Gay Thoughts. The delegation will also be present at the MaMA Event in Paris, the Glimpse festival in Belgium and the Eurosonic festival in the Netherlands.

The festival with a strong visual note is organized by Kino Šiška in cooperation with the Multipraktik team and the Slovenian Music Information Centre, SIGIC.
