Festivals and Competitions 2017

Hello friends,

It seems more natural to become more thoughtful during this time of the year, saying goodbye to 2016 and welcoming future 2017. We, at Folklore Festival Association (FFA), are summarizing 2016 and we can't calm down all the emotion that spring from us, all the trips we made, all the meetings we have with municipalities, producers, event companies, all the groups we welcomed, all the performances we made, all the applauses we had, all those smiles on the faces of the performers, and even all those sad faces we had when we were saying "good buy and see you soon on some other festival". And what was boosting our energy is that we were really seeing you coming back to our festivals, over and over in 2016 as well as last 10 years. That was really refreshing - we welcomed more than 70% of the groups in 2016 Festivals and Competition Editions not as new but as loyal and good friends. Also, we had chance to meet new friends, to share and learn their culture and tradition too. And, honestly, we are honored with the trust you have in us. More then 8.000 kids and youths took part in 15 different festivals and competitions, in 9 different countries such as Spain, Italy, Austria, Czech R, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Serbia.

We were dancing and singing on Mare Adriatiko festival in Lido Di Jesolo squares, just after we visited Venice. We were getting applause from auditors in Barcelona and Calella, but we surely leave our mark in Greece and beautiful Hanioti and Thassos Island. In Ohrid Macedonia, we had great time, party, boat cruise and we visited all hidden gems Ohrid Lake and surroundings had to offer. In Vienna, Prague and Budapest we experienced a true Spring and Autumn Tale, and as someone said “we felt like walking on the Mozart way”. In Serbia, we sing and dance next to Sava and Danube River to celebrate life, and in Varna we rock the stage with all the energy we spread there.

Our goal for 2017? To become even better. We will listen to you even more, and respond to what you want. We at FFA Team are committed to making our festivals and competitions your first choice for your needs.

Being on a festivals creates great opportunities and we built our vision around that premise. Today, you may be flashing back your memories from 2016 or planning 2017, and we are here in both ways, to back up you, to be your true friend.
