SOUTHERN SOUL FESTIVAL
DATA: 28 June - 01 July 2018
PLACE: Ulcinj, Montenegro
Cutting-edge music and lots of fun. Sun, sea and a very long beach in beautiful Montenegro. Here is the recipe for one of the most interesting summer festivals in the European scene, the Southern Soul Festival.
Very few years of life and yet, in the 2015, The Guardian, has shown him as one of the best 10 European festivals ... you've never heard of! And indeed, it is an event that deserves the right emphasis. An event that has all the right ingredients. Southern Soul Festival can be considered as a sort of holiday vacation. The perfect combination of music and the sea.
The festival takes place every year, from the 2013, in the beautiful setting of Velika Plaža ad Ulcinj, in Montenegro. Here, there is the long beach of Copacabana, where there are three stages in which you can unleash the rhythm of hip and underground and different styles of music; obviously, there is no lack of soul, jazz, and funk; nor, techno, and dance. Some of the most advanced producers, DJs and artists take part in the lineup.
HOW TO GET
Podgorica Airport is the nearest international airport, just a little more than 70 kilometers from Ulcinj. It is served by numerous airlines that, especially in high season, make direct connections to the main European destinations.
From the airport, by hiring a car, you arrive at your destination in no time. Alternatively, you can book on the official website, from this link, airport transfer; generally, the cost should be around € 20,00 per person for one way.
