Mysterious and atmospheric festival in Bulgaria’s Rhodope mountains, with underground acts and a unique sense of community
Burning Man’s community-based festival ethos has spread far and wide, and few places offer such an offbeat slice of the collaborative action as Meadows in the Mountains. With unusual acts, all manner of odd shenanigans going on and a cheap cost of living once you’re there, it’s got bags of unconventional appeal.
As the name suggests it takes place in an eerily beautiful space between the Rhodope mountains in Bulgaria, which provides the perfect setting to tune out of everyday life and plug into free-spirited debauchery – with a pretty epic soundtrack.
Expect a defiantly underground – and weird and wonderful – line up.
If you need to top up your danger count, track down the downhill grass bobsleighing, which has all the hallmarks of one of those things that felt like a great idea at the time but, well… go on, we dare you.
