Guca – The trumpet festival

1 min read
The Guca Trumpet Festival, also known as the Dragacevski Sabor, is an annual brass band festival held in the town of Guca, near the city of Cacak, in the Dragacevo region of western Serbia. Guca is a three-hour bus ride from Belgrade.
600,000 visitors make their way to the town of 2,000 inhabitants every year, both from Serbia and abroad. Elimination heats are held earlier in the year and only a few dozen bands qualify to compete. Guca’s official festival has three parts, Friday’s opening concert, Saturday night’s celebrations and Sunday’s competition. The Friday’s concerts are held at the entrance to the official Guca Festival building. This event features previous winners, each band getting to play three tunes while folk dancers, all kitted out in bright knitting patterns, dance kolos and oros in front of a hyped-up audience.
An English party site, ThisIsTheLife.com, has named Guča the best festival in the world.
