This festival became internationally recognized thanks to completely original idea – to combine adventure sports and music into one event. It sounds unbelievable but it’s really happening. As part of the WOLF adventure, visitors will be able to try on kayaking, airsoft, paintball, shooting, as well as other sport activities such as volleyball, Frisbee, swimming …This creative combination attracts the tourists and they are attending it because they haven’t seen anything like this so far.
W.O.L.F 2017 (Way Of Life Festival) in a very innovative way promotes Serbia in the world, representing its spirit through the ancient symbol of a powerful animal – WOLF. Throughout history, wolf was a kind of personification of the Serbian people and it’s spirit. Wolf has a strong, unconstrained character, the need for freedom, disobedience, firmness, but also affiliation with the collective, wisdom and superior intelligence.
In this spirit, WOLF will host big world psytrance artist like DigiCult, Goasia, Boom Shankar, Bitkit, Tropical Bleyage, Pulsar, but many other globally known performers such as Spirit Architect, Carina, Aioaska, BPM, Sarmati, Champa, Tristate, Opsy. You can see whole lineup here – www.wayoflifefest.org.
Except in musical program, visitors will be able to enjoy in various artistic performances, purchasing unique jewelry, clothes, artworks and handicrafts … There will be jugglers, artists with fire, painters, acrobats, cartoon artists, designers. They will enjoy in alternative exercises in nature and massages for improving physical health, as well as traditional and international dishes and specialties, healthy drinks, fruit salads…
Another thing that makes difference is free entrance for several countries. Every year specific “Guest country” citizens can visit the festival and enjoy all programs for free. This year, special guests are citizens from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Romania, Austria and Norway, so if you have friends or acquaintances from these countries, invite them to take advantage of this campaign. This decision was made in cooperation with the City of Vrsac and the Tourist Organization of Vrsac, in order to improve the international exposure of this tourist region and raise the number of visits from abroad.
According to the organizers, the point of the festival is that at least for a moment we are free from the pressure , to do what we love and live in the way we love, freely, as the wolf does … to relax, free our thoughts , enjoy nature, music, socializing, art and creation. That’s why organizers invite all free spirit people to become a part of the “wolf family”. The festival is open for all adventurers, artists, entertainers, musicians and dancers and swimmers, barbecues and musicians.
