The next edition of our annual Festival will have Folk music as its theme. Folk in its broader in sense or "popular" music of different origins. The idea is to offer quality music that is at the same time "for all" where the "for all" should not be an excuse to make a compromise on quality. During the festival the old and the new will merge with ancient sounds revisited and transformed into a music "for everyone". For the first time, there will be, not only the concerts, but even workshops of music and folk dance. During the four days there will be available several possible accommodation and camping as well as a restaurant and a pizzeria. All very Rural as per our custom.
*In case of bad weather the event will take place indoor*
