There were special guests at the festival Blagoja Grujovski, Elena Velevska, Stefce Stojkovski, Adriana Alacki and the hostess Irena Spirovska, together with the duo Ekrem and Ersan and the orchestra Mixbalrum.

Grujovski said on his Facebook profile that representatives of the government, the business community, the municipalities of Caska, Strumica and Mavrovo-Rostuse were also present in Izmir.
"This should be the beginning of a permanent connection of the many thousands of Macedonian diaspora in Turkey with the homeland." "A delegation from the municipality of Chile was in Macedonia and the government had a working meeting with the Macedonian team to organize the event," Blagoja wrote.

Besides the musicians in Izmir, the Minister of Interior Oliver Spasovski was also present and met with our musicians.
