Skopje Street Festival Kicks Off Friday in City Park

The 4th Skopje Street Festival will take place in the city park, where over 5,000 progressive Skopje residents, as well as guests of the region countries of all ages, are expected to participate in 5 urban culture creative stages: graffiti, streetball, workshops, dance and a music.

This year the festival has included several interactive workshops, such as "Custom Sneaker", "Beats&Breaks" music production workshop with Dutch DJ Propo 88, and "Red Bull Curates" - a project for creative drawing over new surfaces.

DJ's Clash competition is a new stage, supported by Win Music Freedom, calling all young fans of electronic music for a 30-minute set "battle". The winner will be chosen by some of Macedonia's most popular DJs and will win a chance to have a two-hour set in some of the Skopje-based clubs.

"Skopje Street Festival continues this year with much stronger dynamics and a wider concept to build street culture and urban awakening. Skopje represents a symbol of solidarity, hence the idea for sharing new experiences of a different kind. This is an open type festival, representing an open-minded platform for sharing fun, creativity and education. The idea is to awaken young people, to go out there and show how they can creatively "battle" each other," organizers have said.

The event is free of charge during all three days, starting June 10 at 5:00 pm, and lasting through June 12 at midnight.

Along with the campaigns on social media and the graphic identity of the event, this year, the organizers have provided an Android and iOS mobile apps. Apart from information about the event and the program, the app will be used for voting for the Red Bull Curates competition, idea submission, volunteer applications, artist proposals, and similar requests by the audience. The download links for the apps will be listed on Skopje Street Festival's fun page.

Skopje Street Festival was first held in 2013, and each year over 100 urban artists have the chance to express their creative thought. This year the festival was awarded with 2 prestigious international awards at Eventex-Global Event Awards in Sofia, Bulgaria - 2 second places for best cultural event, and best festival, the organizers have pointed.
