4 - The Danube-Bridge Folk Festival goes back high in the past, the antecedents are 40 years old. - This Festival introduces authentic folklore and is composed of mainly open-air events and street performances; acting on stage is not primary. - The venues of the Festival are small towns and villages. - We consider cosy atmosphere and making friends more important than attracting big crowds of people. - There are no long evening performances for a performing ensemble but shorter tasks more times a day take place in a couple of places, so shorter journeys are necessary.
