Fan Fest, between August 15 – 18, in Rosia Montana

Same as previous editions, the program of the festival includes theater performances. Also, the bands Travka and Luna Amara will offer concerts.

The eighth edition of FanFest festival will take place between the 15th and the 18th of August 2013, in Rosia Montana.
This year too, FanFest Rosia Montana is designed as an event dedicated to culture, social activism and respect for nature, heritage and people. The positive energy generated by this event, as well as the enthusiasm of the participants who will join us for the 4 days of activities and cultural manifestations of the festival will stir the interest of the visitors for returning to Rosia Montana during the whole year and for taking part in the activities of the campaign.
During FanFest, Rosia Montana becomes a big scene. The yards are transformed into places of performance and activist interaction, the houses – into exhibition galleries, the clearings – into amphitheatres for concerts. Both for the ones visiting Rosia Montana for the first time, and for those already familiar with it, the programme proposed by the team organizing the festival contains special events, debates and presentations promoting the heritage in Rosia Montana for becoming part of UNESCO.
The same as in the precedent editions, the programme of the festival includes Theatre performances. Among these, we can mention, participating for the first time in FanFest, directly from the Venice Biennale, the Italian theatre company Motus, with a show-intervention, created especially for Rosia Montana. A series of workshops will also be held, as part of the project Civic Theatre, financed by the Association of the National Cultural Fund. The second edition of the Social Activist Forum will present debates and workshops approaching different social and environmental problems, which affect communities from Romania and Europe. The programme will be completed with exhibitions, like the Museum of Save Rosia Montana Campaign and Lauren?iu Ridiche’s productions of protest art. The music concerts will bring on the stage of the festival bands like Travka, Luna Amara, Implant Pentru Refuz, Blanoz, Norzeatic, Negura Bunget or Krema Kawa and many others. The programme will also include conferences, public lectures, free library and leisure activities like percution, capoeira, tai chi, reiki, juggling, slack line, paraglide, astronomy, hammocks, massage, games and knitting workshops. The tourism section of the festival will offer guided tours on foot and by bike, story-telling by the fire, environmental and social documentaries, a Country Market and a Children Zone.
