About Ngom Festival:
The Festival of music and activism « NGOM Fest » came out as an original idea of a group of young people that are active in social life in Prizren and Kosovë. The successful realisation of the first edition of the festival held on June 2011 made this group of activists to even more commit themselves to the event. The aim of « NGOM Fest » is to be a part of important events in the map of music events, not only in Kosova, but also in the region and further. Festival « NGOM Fest » is the first project of nongovernmental organization « N’GO ».
In the first year « NGOM Fest » was no doubts a successful event. Three separate stages, 26 bends, and 1 DJ’s from Kosova, the region and the world. « NGOM Fest » created a new moment in the world of festivals in Kosova, by promoting a new alternative and attractive wave of social mobilising.
Through music performances of bands coming from different countries, NGOM Fest promotes a new quality of music festivals. At the same time, organizations on different themes during the festival have promoted addressing of different social and cultural issues, the awareness of citizens about problems that preoccupy the youth and the society in general.
The first edition of festival NGOM Fest was not only a success in the field of promoting good qualitative music, cultural inheritance and care for the environment, but also on building good inter ethnic relationships and the support for youth no matter on their language of background.
It was always emphasised that festival “NGOM” is an event of activism, which means that an important key is promotion of environment and raising awareness of citizens on environment protection. The festival has done this promotion and will continue to do so through different activities of this nature.
