Plai festival – behind the scenes

17 Aug

Once a year, in the middle of September, Timisoara hosts one of the biggest, multicultural music events in Romania – Plai Festival. The upcomming edition will be supported by volunteers from all over the world: Italian, Polish, Slovakian, Croatian, Japanese and Chinese students will be helping with the organization of this years edition. These international trainees will contribute creatively to the materials and also share the responsibility of promoting this event.

At the last meeting, Friday the 10th, in the Banat Museum where Plai takes place, organizers and volunteers were discussing the main ideas for the promotion campaign both on national and international level. For the upcomming weeks, the main task of the international trainees will be to raise awareness of the event in their own countries by setting bilateral cooperation with media patrons and cultural associations. And besides that, the volunteers are given the task to prepare extra events in Timisoara such as flashmobs, workshops and creating promotional videos, all to increase the turn-out of the Plai Festival in Timisoara!

Plai is a festival organised entirely by volunteers and it brings together some of the most important world music artists from all different parts of the world with their specific music and musicality. During 14, 15 and 16 september Plai’s stage will host Patrice & The Superpowers , Oquestrada, and Fatoumata Diawara, beside these performances, these three days will also host all kinds of different workshops and art activities. Judging by the energy and brainstorming I saw at the meeting I am convinced it will be an amazing event, everybody block these three days in your agenda, because you SHOULD be there!
