On Our Radar: Meadows in the Mountains – a wondrous Bulgarian eco-festival

When: 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th June 2019
Where: Rhodope mountains, Bulgaria

Dubbed, “like no other festival on earth”, Meadows in the Mountains is a weekend-long celebration of wellness, tradition and nature in the dreamy and ethereal Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria. Bulgarian folk culture and music is woven into the fabric of all things weird and wonderful here. A place of freedom and exceptional natural beauty, fringed with a certain air of fiction, and spectacularly topped off with a dusting of hedonism.

Take full advantage of the heaven-like setting, atop the clouds, and enjoy days which begin with salutations welcoming the orange sun lying low on the horizon. Time here is filled with wellness workshops, live music and special moments of familiarity between strangers.

And this year, the people behind Meadows are so in love with our planet that they are encouraging people to catch the train to the festival rather than fly. Travelling by train is the most beautiful, inspiring, exciting and kind way of getting to Meadows. Whizzing through five countries you will see the whole of Europe pass you by, the landscapes changing as our overloaded atmosphere breathes a sigh of relief.

The first ten people to book their train tickets to the festival will receive a free ticket to the festival. So, why not organise the train trip of a lifetime?
