And this year, Plovdiv GuitArt Festival will offer its fans fantastic concerts, master classes, lectures, an international classical guitar competition and various musical workshops.

The beginning will be given on October 6th, in Studio 1 of BNR - Plovdiv, with Guitar Ensemble "Akademika", which includes current and former guitar students of the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, who this year are celebrating 25 years since its inception. The ensemble's repertoire includes a wide range of classical works, both by famous composers and contemporary Bulgarian and foreign authors. After them, the young Bulgarian virtuoso guitarist Georgi Dimitrov – Jojo - winner of the classical guitar competition, GuitArt 2018, who enjoys a well-deserved dizzying career in the world of classical music, will take the stage.

The festival day will end with a new project by the virtuoso Stara Zagorje guitarist Angel Demirev "Angel Demirev Folk Quartet". The start is planned for 21:00. on the Bee Bop Café Festival Club Stage.

At 7:00 p.m. on October 7th in Studio 1 of BNR-Plovdiv, the Cuban guitarist with Austrian citizenship Prof. Marco Tamayo will present to the Plovdiv audience the premiere of his new musical project.

The guitar day will end in the festival club with a hard dose of music presented by the Plovdiv musicians from the Alexander Lekov Trio.

On Saturday, October 8, the long-awaited Trio "Ralchenitsa" (Peter Ralchev - accordion, Mie Ogura (Japan) - flute and Atanas Urkuzunov - guitar) will delight the Plovdiv audience live. Their original compositions, inspired by Bulgarian folklore, will be presented in Studio 1 of BNR-Plovdiv, from 7:00 p.m.

In the evening, the flamenco/fusion group Del Padre, known to the people of Plovdiv, will explode at the Bee Bop Café from 9:00 p.m.

Sunday, October 9, is dedicated to the second and most important part of the international guitar competition, when the jury will announce a finalist. The winner of the competition will be officially announced and awarded at the "Boris Hristov" House of Culture, immediately before the concert of one of the legends in the world of classical guitar, the Greek virtuoso Kostas Kotsiolis with the "Sofia Soloists" Chamber Ensemble, who are celebrating their 60th anniversary. They will perform arrangements of Beatles songs and a Vivaldi concerto for guitar and string orchestra.
