The beginning will be set with the performance "The Poets", in which some of the most famous Bulgarian actors will read Bulgarian poetry. It is a curious fact that thanks to the event, for the first time in the history of Koprivshtitsa, a symphony orchestra will play live. This is the Pleven Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Nayden Todorov. On August 26, the musicians will appear on stage together with singer Lucy Diakovska on the open stage next to the Old School to present the "Evening of the Musical" program. On August 27, guests to the festival can see Alexandrina Pendachanska in an opera-concert performance "This is Me". On the next day the concert-performance of Hilda Kazasyan "Let's Listen to Cinema" with music from old Bulgarian films will take place. 11 documentary films are included in the program. They will be screened in the local community center "Hadzhi Nencho D. Palaveev - 1869". 

The Bulgarian National Radio is the official media partner of the event.
