Challenge

Like many rural areas in Bulgaria, the villages in the Devetaki Plateau suffer deep demographic and economic decline. Most people leave for the towns searching for jobs, for cultural and social life. Only lovers of the extreme came here, for a one-day stay. Thanks to its resources and the efforts of the local community and the Association, the area started to develop tourism. The COVID not yet gone, another crisis has occurred - the monstrous invasion of Russia in Ukraine.

Solution

Our eighth edition of the Jazz Under The Stars fest will be held on July 08 (a warm-up youth concert), 09 (major concert and jam session), and 10 (Jazz for kids). It will help the small local businesses - accommodation houses, restaurants and producers of goods in these 9 villages. It will attract new audiences - young people, families with kids, and further promote the region as a tourist destination. The event will also convey our message for peace, love and community building through music.

Long-Term Impact

The Association works for the sustainable development and vitalization of the villages. The first 7 editions of the fest showed its potential to grow and have more impact on the place every year. Making it traditional, it will attract more tourists and media coverage. Visitors and photographers will help promote the event and the region, in the long run. Once held successfully, the Concert of young musicians and the Jazz for Kids will develop as attractive out-of-school activities.
