Experience the Guca Brass Band Festival

12th May 2011 Print

Balkan madness and brass bands like you’ve never heard them. Every year 300,000 people descend on the village of Gu?a, home to just 3,000 inhabitants, for the Brass Band Festival and its famous Golden Trumpet competition.

Songlines Music Travel’s six-day trip includes three evenings at the wild festival with accommodation right in the heart of the village. There's also a chance to get a taste of Belgrade nightlife. It’s an unrivalled opportunity to experience the biggest, brassiest and Balkanist festival in Europe.

Meet your tour leader: Vlad Jankovic

“After a great meal in Belgrade under the wing of tour guide Vlad, it was soon apparent that we were in for something amazing. Namely Vlad. No quick sketch can do him justice. A man physically halfway between Borat and Brüno, his razor-sharp humour with a definite camp edge had us crying with laughter the whole week.”
