How do you close a 4-year-long project in support of Balkan world music? By throwing the greatest party Europe has ever seen, of course!

Let us introduce BALKAN:MOST Festival, a celebration of South East European culture that will resonate all throughout Europe. The festival is the closing event of our four-year project. The success of the MOST program is unprecedented, with multiple of our artists performing at the most prominent stages around the world – from WOMEX to EXIT and Budapest Ritmo. Gathering them all in one place for BALKAN:MOST Festival will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get to know the true colours of the Balkans.

Join us in September 2023 at BALKAN:MOST Festival in cooperation with WOMEX. This 3-day celebration in Veszprém, Hungary, is complete with a world-class Showcase stage and an English-speaking Conference. As part of the Veszprém–Balaton European Capital of Culture year, BALKAN:MOST Festival will be just as fun, complex, and crazy as the music of the Balkans!

This region has so much to offer: the music is emotional, energetic and powerful, easy to recognise and easy to love. The goal of BALKAN:MOST is to show that the Balkan music stereotype doesn’t do justice to the region’s cultural riches. Contemporary music from the peninsula is smart, critical and just the right amount of crazy. Learn more about the showcase artists and get excited for the festival – check out the festival’s website.
