Meadows In The Mountains is nestled in the heart of the Rhodopian Mountains near Bulgaria’s Greek border, set in an otherworldly and jaw-dropping setting, until now only accessible to those in the know, the festival claims to retain its intimate and unrivalled ethos and does not follow trends and other festival concepts.
Over three days from sunrise to sunset and throughout the night under the stars, the music, art and theatre line up revolves around two main stages -Sunrise Slope and Sunset Valley all set in breathtaking scenery.
The local area has a rich cultural heritage including ancient Thracian sites such as Perperikon and Tatul; medieval castles, churches, monasteries and scenic villages with traditional Bulgarian architecture from 18th and 19th century. The Rhodopes is the greenest and most picturesque Bulgarian mountain range and is also known as the homeland of the mythological singer Orpheus. Orpheus was a legendary musician, poet, and prophet in ancient Greek religion and myth. His accolades are centered on his ability to charm all living things and even stones with his music. Like Orpheus, Meadows in the Mountains invites you to be charmed by the music along with the beautiful scenery and people of Bulgaria.
