Zoom on Montenegro Festivals

Isabel Sanchez Navarro - 13 Jul 2020

Montenegro is a Balkan country, located on the Adriatic Sea. Today, 13 July, the country commemorates the day Berlin Congress recognised Montenegro as an independent state in 1878. We are taking this opportunity to highlight the four Montenegro festivals registered on the FestivalFinder.eu website.

Petrovac Jazz Festival 2

Petrovac Jazz Festival (Budva)

Since 2007, the Petrovac Jazz Festival has brought many different musicians from all over the world, supporting and promoting young talent, generating synergies between young and experienced musicians, allowing the public to enjoy the music in the cities of Budva and Petrovan, where this event has been traditionally held. This music festival was founded with the idea of promoting cultural values through recreational and educational activities, allowing the active participation of society in cultural change.

This year, the festival will celebrate its 14th edition which is expected to be held from 31 August to 6 September 2020 if the COVID-19 situation allows its celebration.

Fiat Festival 2

FIAT – Festival of International Alternative Theatre (Podgorica)

The Festival of International Alternative Theatre (FIAT) is a cultural festival with thirty years of experience. It was created out of the need to transform existing artistic energy into a critical mass that would reach the furthest borders in theatre, break the old and examine new models of stage expression.

FIAT should be celebrated from 4 to 13 September 2020 in Podgorica. The requests for participation ended on June 1, so we will know the list of artists and art groups from around the world soon.
