Balkanik Festival – Home of World Music, an event internationally recognized for its unique atmosphere, the unique artists that the public has the opportunity to discover, the inclusive spirit and the character of a cultural melting pot for the communities of Bucharest, returns between September 8 and 10 to Uranus Garden and Uranus Street, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary.

“Balkanik Festival is a project co-financed by Bucharest City Hall through ARCUB within the Bucharest Home 2023 Program.”

The 10th edition of the event brings with it a new component – Balkanik Street Fair on Uranus Street which, on the weekend of September 8-10, closes to cars and opens for a fascinating journey through regional culture and creative traditions, through a craft fair and reinterpreted crafts, jam sessions, workshops and various activities that complement and give scope to the festival. Registration for exhibitors is open until August 10, at the e-mail address

Uranus Garden, which houses the famous water tower designed by Anghel Saligny, one of the most beautiful historical monuments in Bucharest, is one of the few spaces that survived from the old Uranus district, demolished during the communist dictatorship to build the People’s House.

Balkanik Festival returns home, in this large garden in the center of Bucharest, a magical space that has hosted 7 editions so far. In the Uranus Garden, concerts will take place on the big stage of the festival, exhibitions and art installations, demonstrations of some crafts on the way to extinction, and the public will be able to disconnect from the rhythm of the city in the oasis of nature where relaxation areas will be set up.

After receiving international recognition as one of the most vibrant and authentic genre festivals in Europe, Balkanik Festival continues its mission to bring together the West and the East in Bucharest, inviting a selection of well-known and emerging artists of reinterpreted and fused traditional music. Thus, the traditional sounds of the different cultures represented in the festival find new forms of manifestation, through jazz, rock or electronic architectures.

The first 500 super early pass passes are available at, for the price of RON 70. The next 500 passes will be available at the price of RON 90. After 1,000 passes are sold, they will cost RON 120.
