Zlatne Uste Golden Festival

More than 60 bands gather in Brooklyn to celebrate the musical traditions of the Balkans (including Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Roman cultures) with an annual all-night blowout. Get down to Transylvanian folk jams and bangin’ Bulgarian horns as old-school and experimental acts take the stage. If the circle dancing makes your head spin, shop for Turkish paper arts and taste free goodies at the market. Don’t underestimate the old-timers, lest ye be outdanced.

I'm always running into a familiar faces at this event... and all the faces are always smiling. Extremely talented musicians and singers across the board every year. Nothing like feeling the vibrations in real time while a ballroom full of folk dancers move as one.


What high school prom SHOULD have been- rockin' out in a school with crazy gypsy music played by awesome live bands, giant circle dances, and yummy Mediterranean food.
