Green Rock Fest Ruse started as a festival for young rock bands in 2009 in Ruse, Bulgaria. The initiator was Plamen Boiadzhiev - a guitar teacher from the city. The idea of the festival was to give a chance to bands at the beginning of their career to perform their music, find friends and play on one stage with local and world famous stars, to look after the nature heritage. Our motto is "Let's keep our environment green!".

This year's edition combines the Green Rock Fest with the initiative of the guitarist of the legendary "Favorit" band from Ruse - Vladislav Marinov to gather all rock bands from the city which have played over the last 30 years into one big concert. 24 bands will play on 3 consecutive days. The event is organized by Ruse rock society, "Green Rock Fest" Association, "Ruse - Free Spirit City" foundation and Municipality of Ruse, with financial help of the local business.

Special guests of the eleventh edition in 2019 will be the Bulgarian super band THE FOUNDATION. They will present their project "Kiril Maritchkov at 75"

Green Rock Fest Ruse 2019 will be held on 13th, 14th and 15th September 2019 at 5.30 pm in the central square in beautiful Ruse - a Bulgarian city near the Danube river.
