The organizer of the First International Sarajevo Guitar Festival is the Guitarists Association of the Federation of B&H. The Association was established to respond to the need for an organized and systematic approach to music and art scene. The date chosen for the opening ceremony of the Festival is April 6th the day on which the city was liberated from the Nazis in 2nd World War, and which has since been celebrated as Sarajevo Day. After all the terrible events in the recent past of the city, our aim is to help transcend borders and support and promote cultural and artistic diversity.
Since music is a universal language, this Festival aims to become a festival of freedom and an opportunity to present Sarajevo as a cultural junction of East and West. The main goal of the Festival is to revive the music and cultural scene in Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina by presenting top classical guitarists to B&H audience and giving an opportunity to young artists to exchange artistic experiences and learn from world-renowned guitarists and guitar professors.
