Guca – The Best Serbian festival

Guca – The Best Serbian festival
Every year in August the sleepy town of Guca turns into a big party, the air is filled with the sound of trumpets and smell of grilled meat, streets with dancing and drinking people… More than 600,000 visitors make their way to the town of 2,000 people, both from Serbia and abroad. This is the best Serbian festival considering that Exit festival visit about 150.000 people and Guca Trumpet Festival in 2012 visit 600.000 people, and in 2013 about 450.000 people.



Elimination heats earlier in the year mean only a few dozen bands get to compete. Guca’s official festival is split into three parts. Friday’s opening concert, Saturday night celebrations and Sunday’s competition. Friday’s concerts are held at the entrance to the official Guca Festival building. This event features previous winners, each band getting to play three tunes while folk dancers, all kitted out in bright knitting patterns, dance kolos and oros in front of a hyped-up audience.

 An English party site, www.ThisIsTheLife.com, has named Guca the best festival in the world.

 Forget Glastonbury, Reading, Burning Man and Coachella: “The wildest music festival on earth is a cacophonic and crazy brass band festival that takes place every summer in the tiny Serbian town of Guča in the western region of Dragacevo”.
