This Festival Brings Love and Support to Elders in Bulgaria

One festival that takes great pride in its connection with the local community is Meadows in the Mountains , a festival that occurs every June in the mountains that straddle Greece and Bulgaria. Established in 2010, the festival takes place above the clouds in the stunning Rhodope Mountains, and the quiet village where the event takes place has been supportive and hospitable since it launched. A mutual relationship has evolved between the festival organisers and the inhabitants of the nearby village, with locals opening their doors to festival-goers, allowing them to stay in their homes, bed and breakfast style. Local taxi drivers ramp up their availability, with services running up and down the mountain all day and night. Some people even convert their homes into restaurants, serving up food and drinks all day long to hungry festies.
