Why carnival then?
Because six Balkan astronauts will play extraterrestrial music inside the Hillock of Fraternity.A free orchestra will play the old urban folk tricks to their conductor in the heart of the Hadzhi Hassan neighbourhood.Hot Serbian power jazz will be served double portions at the flee market by the Russian market.And then the Mars express will cut through the night as if on its final trip starting at the Central Railway Station, blowing its ambient-rock whistle.
Because it’s a fest you have never listened to.
If you are not on your seaside holiday on August 24th and August 25th, you better be in Plovdiv to hear the wave of new music, rising up from the Balkans. The www.horz.co label comes to be the slow-burner local hub for creative and non-genre music in the region. This year, the "Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture 2019" Foundation sent us on a mission to lay the foundations a different festival. A musical carnival that will showcase our rich and diverse crop at the wildest original Plovdiv locations, summoning new, enthusiastic followers of the intriguing fresh music.
