August 1, 2020 - The second Wild Beauty Art Festival is planned to take place from 31st July to 22nd August at several locations across Montenegro. Nine music programmes are planned for Black Lake on Durmitor - the already well-known site of the festival - as well as the UNESCO site Stećci, and for the new coastal home of the festival, the unique ambience of Luštica Bay.
The Wild Beauty Art platform was created on the initiative of the KotorArt team, after almost two decades of the latter festival’s existence. KotorArt is now a festival of national and international importance and provides an active contribution to branding Montenegro as a tourist destination with high quality and unique artistic and cultural content. Last summer, the first edition of Wild Beauty Art was held successfully, the idea being to present the natural beauties of Montenegro not “only” purely as unique natural places in themselves, but also as spaces for top artistic creations.
The programmes planned for this summer have been carefully designed as a blend of artistic quality and musical works receptive to a wider audience, and will showcase a wide range of musical genres. In the next four weeks of summer, programmes with jazz, world music, popular melodies, but also art music are planned every weekend. The main events are scheduled for Friday at 6 pm on the Black Lake and Saturday at 9 pm in Luštica Bay. The festival starts on Friday, 31st July, next to the Black Lake, with a performance by the band Ars Longa, consisting of violinist Nenad Jovanović, flutist Tamara Knezević and double bassist Vasilija Gagović.
All Wild Beauty Art programmes are planned in the open, with maximum respect for the measures of the National Coordinating Body for Infectious Diseases, in order to ensure the safety of the audience, musicians and the festival team. Admission to all events within the Wild Beauty Art Festival is free, and the organizing team, sponsors and partners of the festival ask the audience to adhere to the NKT measures, especially in terms of wearing protective masks and maintaining physical distance.
The second Wild Beauty Art Festival is held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Montenegro and the Tourist Organization of Zabljak, in cooperation with the National Restaurant Black Lake, Durmitor National Park, Lustica Bay and the International Festival KotorArt. The organizer reserves the right to change the programme in line with the epidemiological situation.
