The disco punk maestros, the band !!! (CHK CHK CHK), will take the stage at St. Michael's Fortress on September 12th this year, opening the second edition of the SHIP festival!

SHIP is a festival that nurtures all kinds of musical communication, and this year's visuals communicate through maritime signaling, serving as a base for the dance of SHI(P) faces. The creators are Karlo Kazinoti and Mišo Komenda.
