ESTAM world music festival
ESTAM world music festival started as a student project in Kragujevac, Central Serbia. This one-day festival had shows by Naked and Oratnitza, worldwide renowned Balkan bands. The organisers saw an ideal climate for seeding a festival that will promote the Balkan world music scene, so ESTAM continued. ESTAM is a two-day festival in December, at the Knjaževsko-srpski theatre.
A lot of extraordinary musicians perform at ESTAM from across Europe. The goal of the festival is to present and connect international musicians and industry people. The goal is also to exchange experiences and best practises. To grow the audience, they consider many aspects, such as youth culture and tourism. There is also a great variety of classical and jazz music at ESTAM, involving the music academy and music high school of the town.
