Milena Slavova and Vasko Krupkata with his famous band “Poduene Blues Band” will play at the 10th Mindya Rock Fest near Veliko Tarnovo. This year the festival will take place on 24th and 25th of August.
Traditionally, the festival begins with a speech by the mayor of the village Ivan Ivanov, who will talk about the international situation, the development of rock music and the influence of the Mindya Rock Fest on it. After that, the young Tarnovo group, The Drivers , will make their debut at the festival. Delta Rooster, Nia and Yavor, Milena and Traffic are the other musicians who will entertain the audience the first night.
Saturday night will begin with a performance by the group Restart and will continue with Assemblend, Masters, the Serbian band Cotton Pickers, and end with Vasko Krupkata and Podouene blues band. Both festival nights offer great music for every rock lover.
There are three camps with places for tents, campers, and any other type of temporary shelters. One of the camps is in the courtyard of Evgeni Daynov, who usually welcomes in his house at least 20 people. Since a few days ago, Mindya is already bursting at the seams with guests and fans of the rock festival. Both guest houses are full and some of the rooms have been reserved since February.
