The sixth edition of FanFest will bring, between August 12 and 14, in Rosia Montana, outdoor concerts, featuring Luna Amara, Sarmalele Rece and others, theatre, film screenings, conferences, guided tours of the village and its surroundings, food and home-made objects fairs, the organizers inform, in a press release.
The line-up includes Luna Amara, Sarmalele Reci, Aria Urbana, Alternativ Quartet, Mojo Barells Band, Junetrip, Trupa OM, Maya, Adhoc, Dusty old records, Fierbinteanu and others, to be followed by the eclectic mixes by DJs Kaya Sound, Limun, Atomic Midget, Injektah, Mihail Liquid, Djubei, DJ Padre, Burner Greene, Yogi, Koko, Tabac & Phla feat. Pietonu’ and VJs Flowerstepper & Spacebunny. The day-time lounging in haystacks, while listening to the DJ music, will give way in the evening to live concerts on the Taul Brazi stage.
“Our School”, an event-documentary, directed by Mona Nicoara and Miruna Coca Cozma, will be presented as well within the festival. Also featured on the programme is a social and environmental film mini-festival. The films will be screened on each of the three nights in Rosia Montana’s Od Square.
As one of the main targets of FanFest is getting people better acquainted with the place, on each day of the festival participants will be able to take guided tours of Rosia Montana and its surroundings – churches, tarns, the protected architectural site Rosia Montana and the Roman galleries. In the evening, participants will have a chance to listen to local tales and legends, from the ones involving gold-thieves to those concerning the heroic battles in Rosia Montana during the 1848 Revolution. All participating artists will be appearing pro-bono.
Furthermore, the festival is free for the public and relies exclusively on volunteer work by the organizers – the Alburnus Maior association – and on private donations, mainly from individual contributors.
