Is this amazing Bulgarian mountain festival, Meadows In The Mountains on your radar? Fesitval season is upon us and I want to make sure you all know about this because it's truly exceptional, everyone's gotta love a good Croatian festival and Bulgaria is super cheap and this setting is SO beautiful it really is breath of fresh air. This festival unlike any other festival experience in the world. Showcasing over 3 days an intimate ethos celebrating the best of Disco, House, Electronica, Acoustic, Jazz, Funk alongside creative arts and installations all set in stunning vistas high up near the Greek border. You can enjoy other festival like activities like cart taxis, mountain zip line, installations, downhill grass bobsleighing, waterfalls, mountain walking, natural thermal springs, hammocks,  Sun, nature, local village life and locally sourced food (No greasy overpriced festival food!).
I hope to find a way to this festival!
