About the Festival:

Taksirat Festival started 11 years ago with the purpose of bringing together all Ex-Yu bands into one performing place, which was quite incredible in that time. From then on, Taksirat, which was originally created to gather 100 people at one gig, became a festival that lasted 7 days and attracted over 15,000 people. The whole festival lasts for one week and is located in different cultural locations in Skopje over the 7 days.



Besides the music program, the festival is usually enriched with off programs like: performances, films, theatre plays, NGO campaigns. The festival public engagement could be seen by initiating and promoting social campaigns like No pistols, Macedonia without Visa, Be Volunteer, Mobility of students, Stop Aids and more. The Festival agenda is to promote positive values between the youth population.
