About the Festival
HAJDE! is intended as a bridge. We wish to connect young, contemporary artists who live, work or have studied in Serbia, Europe and the world.
All across Europe there are artistic "hot spots", places with a rich and diverse artistic panorama and a pulsating, contemporary art scene. Young artists from all over the world come here to work or study in their respective fields. Likewise, also in Serbia, especially in a city like Novi Sad, new forms of stage art and an innovative generation of contemporary theatre is emerging.
On HAJDE! those artists have the opportunity to meet and present their works to an international public in the pictorial scenery of the Fruska Goran hills, just next to the city of Novi Sad.
As the night will unfold, young actors, dancers, clowns, acrobats and performers will take to the stage under the open sky, surrounded by trees and bushes.
HAJDE! is an ecologically sustainable event. We are committed to minimize garbage and electricity consumption and to respect the natural beauty which surrounds our event.
