The Spirit of Bourgas

spiritofburgas.com

SPIRIT of Burgas is the jinnee in the bottle which you will find on the coast of the Black sea, on the sands of the central beach in Burgas. This year you have to make it by August 12th late afternoon, or about 7 in the evening, so that you may open the bottle and set the spirit free.

This summer too, the Spirit of Burgas will fly freely over the sands and the endless waters of the sea to breeze over the trees and alleys of the Sea garden. This is the largest and most impressive musical event in Bulgaria following the rules and standards of Europe and conforming to the true definition of a festival. And the true festival is not only a sequence of concerts, held by various bands on one or two stages but a special happening at a special place and point in time. And not just for day or two…

SPIRIT of Burgas means:

- not one but several stages;

- various musical stiles: rock, reggae and ska, jazz and blues, hardcore and punk, ethno, trans, techno, drum & base and more;

- some of the most attractive names from the world’s musical stage, many of whom visit Bulgaria for the first time;

- high quality Bulgarian original music, played and sung by its creators;

- festival town full of attractions with bars loaded with cold beer and fresh food;

- it has its own camping grounds where you can rest from the high powered musical marathon;

But most importantly – all of this is happening on a carpet of the finest sand and the most spectacular views in the World – the large shining moon reflected on the waters of the sea below a rain of stars, some coming from the august night sky and some of the stages of the festival.

The SPIRIT of Burgas is the festival without rain, mud or dust but only soft sand, the warmth of August and the waves of the sea, the shrieks of the gulls, thousands of smiling people happy and relaxing…in short a party without an end!

And it will happen in Burgas for the 4th time on 12, 13 and 14th of August 2011.

Considering its young age, this festival has won quite a number of nominations and considerable praise:

2008 – a finalist among the 15 best festivals for the “Best European Festival” award given by Europe Festival Awards;

2009 – nomination for the final phase of the top 10 “Best Overseas Festival” given by UK Festival Awards;

2010 – selection among the top 10 of the “Best Overseas Festival” given by UK Festival Awards;

The SPIRIT of Burgas enjoys the exceptional support of the municipality of Burgas and the patronage of its mayor, Mr. Dimitar NIKOLOV. Burgas has won a name for itself as “The best Bulgarian city to live in” according to a survey held by the “24 Hours” newspaper and Darik Radio. A great contribution to the positive image of one of the biggest towns in Bulgaria has been the SPIRIT of Burgas. Well know as the “city of poets”, Burgas is a great tourist destination and a starting point for some of the most popular national south Black sea Bulgarian resorts. Being the fourth largest city in the country and having a population of 250 000 during the summer months the city is host to over 500 000 visitors.

But the most important feature of the SPIRIT of Burgas remains its audience and if you have never been a part of it don’t let others tell you how to free the spirit from the bottle. Make the trip and visit us on August 12th and let you spirits fly overt the dunes and the sea waves sharing some unforgettable moments with thousands of other music lovers!
