The Meadows in the Mountains family welcomes you back to the beautiful landscapes of Bulgaria to once again recreate the magic mystery and true sense of community that the festival represents. This festival is made by the people that attend; not the exquisite line up that is presented to you. Welcome festival goers, hedonists and those born with a penchant for social experimental adventure. We extend a hand and invite you to embrace our energy and ethos of community, inspired by the Bulgarian revolutionaries Vasil Levski and Hristo Botev. Please step gently aboard this flying contraption minding your heads and heels as we embark upon a voyage across the seven seas to the very heart of the Rhodopian Mountains, Bulgaria; an untouched and unravished bastion of nature in this harsh world of open busy buildings, urban sprawl and concrete jungles.
Once home to prehistoric man these ancient forests have born witness to the fire of creativity and the explosion of the conscious magical mind. It has been recorded that the ancient Thracian explorers, upon bearing witness to the majesty of the meadows, immediately called for their harps and flutes to be bought forth and a new form of musical ceremony was created. The Byzantines themselves reveled in the power that saturates the land, dancing naked by the moonlight in praise to the Gods of celebration and song...
And it is through this very tradition that the Sasse brothers have the most great and humble pleasure in inviting you all to cast aside your daily woes, shrug off the binding chains of the 9-5 and indulge in a debauched weekend of mind-expanding experience, community and free spirit to skip through the fields and forests with untamed abandon and to lay with the fireflies and nighttime skies in the long grass of the Meadows in the Mountains Festival!
Dance in the ethereal half-light of dawn and dusk as the sunrise and sunset stages provide some of the best unsigned, underground artists from across around the world spanning various musical genres. Watch the morning mist cascade over the mountain range as shadowy forms convulse and glide to the rhythmic beats of house and techno...
Dwell at the forefront of sound as jazz, folk and disco float through the intricacies of melody. Indulge your primordial appetites with hearty food to feed the soul; all locally grown and locally produced.
Walk in the footsteps of the forest gods as you explore the rustic surroundings and the wildness of nature. Glimpse the awe-inspiring power of creation as the art installations change your concepts of what reality really means. Cast aside your mental barriers and explore the expansion of human consciousness with like-minded individuals; help us to create an event that promotes an attitude of utmost adventure.
