Summer Festivals – Happy Hours:Guča Brass Bands Festival 13-22.08.2010 (Serbia)

Text: Panayiotis Fetsis

Maybe one of the craziest, most spontaneous and life-celebrating festivals in the globe is arguably this brass band gathering held in the town of Guca, a small town located about three hours away from Belgrade. It is arguably the biggest trumpet festival in the world and gathers some of the most talented and prolific players and bands around. Positive energy, tons of cheap beer and the most original balkan ethnic music spread over the whole city over ten days of euphoric madness.
