Beglika Fest 2017 – REBIRTH

Each year, Beglika Fest brings together a community of visionaries, free-minded, free-spirited people, artists, musicians,  enthusiasts and dreamers who seek harmony with nature. We come here to establish a deeper connection with the nature around us, to calm down and listen to her voice, to go deeper into her language, her silence, her sounds, her stillness. We are aware that our human footprint can leave serious marks on this beautiful but delicate ecosystem. And we intend to implement some of the best practices available to keep that impact to a minimum! Together, we want to create a truly environmentally-friendly festival. To come to the mountain as to a sacred place. To calm down. To awaken the feelings of sacredness in each of us. To extend our gratitude.

Do not be surprised if some of the places for food and drinks ask you to leave a deposit for a beer cup or a plate, so that you keep them and use them till the end of the festival. And why don’t we bring our own real mugs or cups, plates, forks and spoons? This way we won’t have to throw away dozens of plastic cups and plates after each meal or drink… HOW AND WHERE SHOULD WE THROW OUR WASTE There will be around 30 stations for separate waste collection: in Camp 1 and 2, as well as within the festival area. We divide waste into 4 categories, each of which is marked with a different color: yellow for plastics and metals (bottles,...
