The village of Mindya annually holds a rock fest. The event is organized by the notable political commentator Evgeni Daynov who owns a house in the village. He came up with the idea in 2009. 16 bands will perform in this year’s edition of the rock fest. Mindya Rock Fest 2014 will be a three-day event taking place at the end of August – 28th, 29th and 30th.
The rock fest will welcome foreign performers for the first time this year, namely guest groups from Turkey and Serbia. The audience at the concerts will hear some nice blues and rock music. For a second year in a row Mindya Rock Fest will present rising bands which are to compete for the prize to record a song for free in a professional studio. The music event is a part of Veliko Tarnovo Municipality official cultural programme from 2012.
The entrance for all concerts is free. You can also watch them live on the fest official Facebook page. The event is organized by Mindya Rock Fest Foundation with the financial aid of Veliko Tarnovo Municipality and with the help and assistance from the locals and English expats living in the area and many other sponsors and contributors.
