What’s On: ‘Concert of Freedom’ in central Sofia on November 1

A “Concert of Freedom” is to be held in central Sofia next to Alexander Nevsky cathedral on November 1 2014 as part of the 25 Years Free Bulgaria campaign.

The campaign marks the quarter-century since Bulgaria freed itself from the communist regime.

“The fall of communism restored freedom and the right to choose,” organisers said. “Listening to the Beatles was no longer forbidden and the concert-rallies of the 1990s became a symbol of change. The freedom to create without censorship and fear transformed the Bulgarian scene.”

Performers at the concert are to include Cosmic Voices of Bulgaria, Vlado Radulov and Ventsi Blagoev, Bogdana Karadocheva, Crush, Vanya Kostova and Boyan Mihailov, Milena, Revolution Z, and Vasko the Patch and the Poduene Blues Band.

The concert has been postponed from its original date of October 25 because of forecasts of bad weather. It starts on November 1 at 6pm and entrance is free.
