OUTHIDE Festival – Idea worth fighting for


Idea worth fighting for

A rebellious movement manifested through a music festival with the goal of renewing the city in 10 years and making it a tourist attraction.

“Province is only a geographical indicator”. Although this sentence is true, it’s not easy to live 100km from the highway. If Zaječar is to be presented as a real person of flesh and blood, it would be an old rocker, with long greasy hair, torn leather jacket with a washed Red Star jersey (and that edition while Kristal was a general sponsor), who wanders from bar to bar, recounting how it was in the time, and that “time” was exactly 30 years ago.

Here in fact no one has money, the city has millions in the red, with the clubs’ with “uncool” themes go down, and slowly, fraction by a fraction, a piece of the city’s soul breaks. All of these are more or less universal characteristics of the cities from which the industry moved out in the early 1990s, but there is one thing that makes Zaječar very specific. And that’s the scene. Music scene. In spite of all the existential and provincial problems that this city has been left with, the authentic, and ultimately never promoted music scene in the city has never been called into question.

From this scene, from the mass of bands, the incredible musical knowledge that this city has on its asphalt , a music idea called the festival Outhide has risen. With street and university education, kilometers in stretched cables and rebellion that the current state is not everything that this city can offer. With the idea that it is possible to make a festival according to the “live aid” principle, where most of the income will always be allocated for “ideas worth fighting for”. With the crazy enthusiasm of an urban team that believes that “The Rebellion is the voice of those no one listens to”. So we gathered and decided to make this humanitarian event. All income from the Festival goes for humanitarian purposes.

If you think that our idea is worth working for, come to Kraljevica on August 19th, because whatever you listen to, you will not be disappointed, or just visit our donate button on the site and help those who are fighting for the idea.
