Ptuj Festival was established in 1969 and was set up as an embellishment of the 1900th anniversary of the first recorded mention of the city of Ptuj. Organized by Radio Ptuj - who still handles it today - it was the first folk pop music festival in Slovenia, coming into being merely a decade and a half after the genre itself was 'created' by the Avsenik brothers. Their "classic quintet" still resounds in how the competition categories of the festivals are divided, one being for quintet formations with an accordion, trumpet, clarinet, guitar and bass, and the second for all the others.
This competition format, with the winners usually chosen by a combination of the expert jury and public votes, has later been adopted by numerous other similar festivals. Nowadays, there are awards for the best songs in each category (and one also for the best song according to the audience), and also for the best lyrics and best vocal performance and the audience.
