News / Balkan Trafik festival celebrates its 15th anniversary online
The multi-arts festival Balkan Trafik celebrates its 15th anniversary. This year, the festival presents an entirely digital program to be discovered from 22 to 25 April 2021. True to its reputation, Balkan Trafik! will highlight the diversity of the Balkan culture through a wide range of artistic disciplines, this time on a smartphone and tablet application, offering live streaming concerts and free and exclusive content such as a documentary series. This year the festival will also include international debates with European decision-makers and civil society.
One of the debates will involve the Young European Ambassadors (YEA), a creative network of future young game changers from across the Western Balkans. Youth activism lies in the heart of YEA. Inspiring others and spreading the message of activism are the core values of YEAs. This is why their panel of discussion will be dedicated to activism in the online world, the only world we have had in the times of the global pandemic.
Music will be an integral part of the festival with live streaming concerts and behind-the-scenes forays and interviews, and Q / A with the artists. The artists that have already confirmed their participation in the festival include Shantel & Bucovina Club Orkestar, Zdob și Zdub, Dubioza Kolektiv, Naked, Gipsy Groove, Stereo Banana, Mec Yek & Bernard Orchestar.
The festival is also at the initiative of two unique jazz & rock creations that will bring together the best Belgian and Balkan artists and aim to decompartmentalise the Balkans with international artists such as Ibrahim Maalouf & Amparo Sánchez.
