The group Laibach was established in the year 1980 in Trbovlje, an industrial coal mining town in the centre of Slovenia (YU).
Upon its founding in 1980 Laibach prepared in Trbovlje its first multimedia project “Red Districts (Rdeci revirji)”, designed to challenge the striking contradictions of the political structure of the town at that time. The project was banned before it opened, which prevented the first public appearance of the group, though not the angry media response which followed. Laibach appeared again in 1982, with their first concert appearance in Ljubljana.
