SoFest 2023 presents SoFest Summer Edition, which will take place from June 22nd to 25th at Kino Cabana, Sofia. The summer edition of the iconic capital city festival SoFest will present four unique concerts and new literary delights. On the festival stage in the heart of the capital, we will see world-class creators, artists and performers.

On June 22nd at 20:00 at Kino Cabana is the opening of SoFest Summer with a concert "Theodosii Spassov ft Hojsak & Novosel". The virtuoso performer of kaval Theodosii Spassov together with Tihomir Hojsak and Filip Novosel from Croatia will present their new project combining traditional Bulgarian and Balkan rhythms.

On Saturday evening, June 24, at 7:30 p.m., two young but proven artists - Tsvetelina Tsvetkova and Kalina Batkova - will take the stage at SoFest Summer. The red-haired fury Tsveti gained popularity with stories about people, love, dreams, our roots, about simple things in the collection "The Green Vest" and with the series "Lady Gergana".
