10.-11.12.2021. EXPORT DELTA
As in previous years, the Ri Rock Association through the festival provides author bands with the opportunity to perform in front of an audience to present their work. Through its 42 releases, the Ri Rock Festival has remained one of the oldest and most famous music events in the region for non-established bands, and so far many musicians have grown into today's most famous rock performers in Croatia and beyond. Selected bands were given the opportunity to perform, without the classic concert competition of bands with the support of musicians who have contributed to the regional alternative scene throughout history. On Friday, December 10, 2021 The young bands will be supported by Atomsko sklonište, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. Their performance will be preceded by performances by bands: Soulcase (RI), Zenoth (RI), Hand Of Apollo (RI), Freaktion and FANAA. It is worth noting that Rijeka's FANNA won Ri Rock Kipić at last year's festival, in the category Nove nade. On Saturday 11.12.2021. guests from Novi Sad will arrive - Atheist Rap, who from their beginnings in the late 80's until today with their music persistently fight against hatred and stupidity. Their sarcastic humor is universally needed and applicable in this area, especially in the times we live in today. Their performance will be preceded by performances by bands: Johnny Quid (RI), The Low Kicks, Sick Sheets, Fervent Inc. and Restless Sea. The festival program of the 40th edition includes the Ri Rock Kipić awards ceremony, which will be presented this year through both evenings. The host of the award will be Lorena Zec, a psychologist and women's rights activist who works during the day at the Counseling Center for Victims of Partnership and Sexual Violence, and at night turns into a real fan of the Rijeka rock scene.

The action is carried out in cooperation with the Rijeka Tattoo Expo, the Rijeka tattoo convention where the action started and the Municipality of Kostrena, the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Kostrena, the Kostrena Cultural Center and the Ri Channel. Tin was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (spastic tetraparesis) at the age of two, which means that both his arms and legs were affected. As a result, Tin is not yet able to walk and has difficulty using his hands and is non-verbal. Despite that, Tin is in 2nd grade of elementary school. For the past more than seven years, Tin has been on various therapies in Croatia and abroad that have helped him develop. In order to enable Tin's further progress and facilitate her movement, he needs various disability aids.
