Meadows In The Mountains 2018
Whilst there’s no shortage of summer festivals boasting sunbathing climates and parties on the beach, next to none offer the exquisite coniferous landscape that Meadows In The Mountains takes as its home. Set amidst the Rhodope mountain range of Bulgaria, not far from the Greek border, Meadows In The Mountains is revered for its mist-adorned, postcard-perfect setting as well as its uninhibited party culture and superb music policy.
Offering a well-balanced mix of DJs and live artists, the festival has previously welcomed the likes of Yussef Kamaal, Sassy J, San Proper and Shanti Celeste among countless other tastemakers, exploring roads less travelled with some of the most creative bookings on the summer circuit. Offering a sense of adventure, summer sun and a beautiful crowd of like-minded people as well as the most thoughtful musical selections, Meadows In The Mountain is a festival that doesn’t need to preach its own virtues for them to shine through.
Blessed with an almost unrestricted policy for music which allows partying to continue all through the night, the mesmerising sight of the sun rising through the clouds to climb above the mountaintops as day breaks has become an often recounted memory among all who’ve attended, the mere thought of it enough to replenish energy levels as the party rolls into the later hours. Offering a natural euphoria reserved for only the finest moments, the sun’s return through the eerie mist of the Bulgarian night is one of those genuinely breathtaking phenomena that so many holiday destinations promise but which only a handful can deliver.
Waxed lyrical about by all who attend, it’s clear that there’s something special about those misty mountains.

Situated between Bulgaria’s Rhodope mountains, Meadows In The Mountains could not have a much more beautiful location. Peaked landscapes covered in coniferous forest stretch as far as the eye can see, with a mild climate making it a perfect destination for those extended partying passages. Contoured land and the sparsely scattered signs of human residence in the green hills make for breathtaking views, and there’s an unforgettable sunrise on the cards for those who make it all the way through til morning.
