We will be hosting 7 great multilingual and multiinstrumental music groups on our stage: Ayanbeyan, Deli Reçel, Imvros Ensemble, Ruşen Alkar, Seyyah, Serbest Bölge and Sinafi Trio.
There will be 7 dance workshops and participatory performances from different parts of the world: Anatolian, Balkan, European and many more.
We’ll discuss how to improve our working conditions, solve our professional problems and build solidarity economy models among our community.
The event is free of charge and open to everybody, but you are still required to register.
You can pitch your tent in our camping area by the seaside. Reserve your camping space quick, we have limited space in our camping site!

‘A life without dancing is not worth living’, so we’ve added many easy-to-learn and practice dance workshops with group activities in the festival programme.
In addition to the many music and dance performances, there will be plenty of interactive and participatory workshops to attend during the festival.
ImvrosFest is organised collectively by a group of language workers, musicians and dance performers. We have been organising wide-reaching public events on translation, music and dance over the past five years.
