The twenty-third edition of the traditional OFF-Fest will be held from June 6 to 9 at the National Opera and Ballet, the Youth Cultural Center and Cinematheque of S. Macedonia, with eight concert performances and two documentaries.

The program is fresh, geographically diverse and exciting, perhaps the strongest in the recent history of the festival.

OFF-Fest 2024 will be opened by two big names of African music: BOMBINO:, one of the most significant representatives of the celebrated "desert blues", and South African stars BCUC, known for their Afro-psychedelic trance and impressive live performances.

The delicious mix of Melanesian, Indian, African influences and European folk with elements of improvised music of the Dutch sextet BOI AKIH, combined with the original and powerful sound of the French-Ethiopian super-group BOX, promises a flawless festival experience.

VICENT FRIEND is considered the successor of the legendary composer and flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia. With two Grammy Awards behind him, accompanied by musicians of the highest class, he will present his fascinating work, which has brought him world fame and contributed to his name becoming a reference for flamenco guitar today.

The last night of OFF-Fest will be dedicated to three outstanding European bands: the furious Polish string quintet VOŁOSI with his original mix of rock, jazz, ethnic, ambient and film music influences, then rising house neo-folk favorites KALATA, as well as the famous Serbian world music collective Naked. As part of the pre-festival "plus program", the documentary films "Cesaria Evora" and "Agadez, the Music and the Rebellion" will be premiered.

Tickets for the 23rd OFF-Fest are already on sale at the NOB ticket office, as well as online through "MK Tickets". All information about the festival program, artists and tickets are available on the freshly updated and redesigned festival website:
