Highlights from the 2016 Zlatne Uste Golden Festival

Bringing more than 60 musical groups to multiple stages (and dance floors), the Zlatne Uste Golden Festival has become a longstanding tradition! For more than 30 years, the Golden Festival has brought folk singers and dancers, brass bands, acoustic and electric bands together for two raucous nights a year.

This playlist is to give you a taste of the Fest's offerings -- and in fact we haven't even uploaded all of our recorded sessions yet -- but it's too good to keep under wraps!

If this can't sate your need for Balkan, Roma and eastern European sounds, feel free to explore our collections from previous years, dating back to 2009, or just watch the highlight reel from the event below!

Brooklyn's legendary Balkan and East European music and dance blowout is this weekend! Golden Fest is a massive two night gathering of musicians, folk dance enthusiasts and fans held at the spectacular Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn's South Slope. The festival kicks off with a multi-band dance party on Friday night January 16th. Then for the big event on Saturday night January 17th, some seventy bands will perform on four stages from 6 pm until the wee hours. WFMU's Transpacific Sound Paradise will be broadcasting live from Golden Fest on Saturday, and recently shared some favorites from last year

Here is some footage from last year's festival:
