Guča Trumpet Festival is not restricted to Siberians, rather invites whole world to witness this big cultural party so that they can make out themselves that why it has been so successful since it forayed in the country for the first time. It is an August festival, alternatively addressed as Dragačevo Assembly, and is responsible for walking up everyone sleeping in the streets of Guca so that its presence should be felt in their veins.

The Guca Trumpet festival, we all know, is a brass band festival split into three main parts. First include the opening concert Sa Ovcara i Kablara that takes place at the entrance to the official Guča Festival building. Once the introductory song is played, the band passes through the streets to invite a major gathering of over 600,000 attendees, believing that they would dance on the brass beats. Thus blow off their trumpets featuring a full range of trumpet music from indigenous melodies.

Other presentations like marches, via kolo (a fast-rhythm chain dance), typical southern Serbia cocek dances, etc. give maximum contribution in filling the whole atmosphere with overwhelming sounds, and keeps your spirit alive to receive pleasures from grilled meat, drinking and dancing till the morning of next day breaks.

The festival also showcases various programs with are traditionally rich such as traditional wedding, art program and sport event so that a good amount of spectators can come and entertain themselves from beginning to end.

In the end, we can only say that the event has lot to offer you, and the renowned celebrities. For instance it recognizes winners, every band plays three tunes, and the dazzling folk dancers dance kolos and oros to spellbind the hyped-up audience. So, come here next year to undergo the associated craziness not by chance but by choice.

Guca Trumpet Festival should be appreciated for acting as a fuel used to converting the sluggish Guca town in Serbia into an eventful place. Each year Guca throws a big grand party attracting each one of you to feel utterly overjoyed with aromatic flavors, electrifying performances, lots of boozing etc. and thus experience a raised level of happiness.
