Kapana Fest 2019. The Legacy
It’s a new era for Plovdiv. It’s a new era for the world! In this new era we the believers, we the seekers, we the doers, make our choice! We choose to leave the world at least a bit better than we found it. Kapana Fest has started this 5 years ago. And it will keep going with ever growing passion!
This year you will only see us once. But the sight will be worth it! Our theme for 2019 is THE LEGACY.
Because this is not just a 3-day event. It is meant to last. We believe Kapana deserves to grow ever more colorful, more attractive and more amazing. And we want to contribute.
Come along! And together we will turn the buildings of Kapana into canvases for the greatest artists to paint. We will make forests out of its alleys. Galleries out of its hidden corners. Cinema halls out of its squares. Of its trees, we will create sculptures. We will turn its pulse into music and its emotion will raise us up. Above the pavement. Above the mountains. To the skies.
31 May – 2 June
Retro Party ft. Jimi Jay
An evening, dedicated to the unforgettable pop and rock hits of the 20th century, awaits us this Friday in Petnoto. The dress code is retro, and DJ Jimi Jay will take care of your good mood!
The Wizards of 3 Оз
3oz Bartenders Crew are the wizards without whom Gingertale would not be the same magical place. Nikolay, Tzvetan, and Hristo mixed the first cocktails. Now the 3 Oz wizards are returning to the favorite bar in Kapana with new superpowers. Can they awaken princesses with green mixed potions? They can do everything, just come to the bar.
The first edition of the series will take place at Kapana Fest, and behind the bar will be the genius Tsvetan Tsvetanov. The theme of alcoholic beverages specially created by him is "with healthy ingredients and no added sugar". On Saturday night, the magic powers will double, because behind the deck will be Ihou, with whom your feet will start dancing themselves.
