"Cucka jeka" is a music festival based on a natural human need to return to our roots, remind ourselves of our true background, our beginnings and tradition whilst showing that the centre of the world can in fact be the hard-reaching point of Montenegrin rugged range if we just pour some true love and energy into it. The festival is being held in the mountain region of Montenegro, in the village with few households, called Kobilji Do.
The Beiteddine Art Festival is one of the leading festivals in the Middle East. It takes place in a large and magnificent 200-year old Palace in the Chouf Mountains in Lebanon. The Palace is a jewel of Lebanese architecture with its many courtyards, monumental gates, elegant arcades and leveled galleries. Each year, in the months of July and August, the Festival presents outstanding performances by world famous stars and Lebanese artists. Concurrent with the performances, the Palace houses one or more international art exhibitions.
