OPEN BUZLUDZHA 2024

8 to 11 of August 2024

 

3 music stages, a 3D mapping show, a rich daily cultural program, beautiful nature and cool people await you. 

 

 

The event is held in support of the preservation and opening of the Buzludzha monument as a place for art, culture and history. The cause is not politically bound and does not aim the full restoration of the monument, but its conservation and reuse for educational and tourist purposes. 

3D MAPPING SHOW

Главозамайващото 3D мапинг шоу на Бузлуджа е неповторимо изживяване. И трите фестивални нощи, самият монумент ще бъде озарен от светлинно шоу, създадено от MP-STUDIO. 

 
MP-STUDIO са сред пионерите в областта на светлинното изкуство в Европа. За петнадесетте години на своето съществуване, студиото се нарежда сред най-успешните в сферата, с над 450 проекта в 25 страни в цял свят. Те реализират първата 3D мапинг проекция върху сграда в България през 2011 г. на фасадата на Народен театър “Иван Вазов“. Те са и организаторите на Фестивала на светлините LUNAR в София.
 

MONUMENT STAGE


Монументалната сцена се намира точно пред Бузлуджа на фона на 3D мапинг шоуто, което я превръща в една от най-нестандартните, извънземни и впечатляващи сцени, която някога сте въждали. Тя ще ви отведе в една нова вселена с вълнуваща комбинация от стилове. Български утвърдени имена в електронната клубна музика – Dimo BG, DJ Versus and Pacho / Cloning Sound will create three inimitable musical experiences.

On Thursday, the sound will gravitate around Afro & Etno wave, accompaniment of Dimo BG will be Matizze and DAN TANEV . The sunrise dances are to the sounds of Icaka.

We have entrusted the Friday opening to Relina, which will fly in from Birmingham. After her, Koi Lopa will create memories with her music, danceable and enchanting. The specialty for the evening Pistamashina with their "disorienting mix of electronica and glitchy pop". In the middle of the evening DJ Versus will take the reins and we will remember what techno is and why it exists. The sun will welcome a young and virtuosic lady working with sounds and rhythm - Stèph.

Saturday the opening is in the hands of Lile – Lilyan Stanailova with her fresh and soft breakbeat, followed by energetic aesthetes from The Foreigners. In the middle of the night comes the girl who won hearts last year - YOR from France with an amazing mix of house, breakbeat and trap. After her is the tech house teacher – Pacho / Cloning Sound. The closing of the musical program is assigned to FEY .
