+++ CONCEPT & PROGRAM
PLUSPLUSPLUS [✚✚✚] is an event aiming to offer a new, synergetic musical and social experience in a particular outdoor context.
The idea behind ✚✚✚ is to incite new, refreshing situations, social constellations and a shared cultural space, in a place least expected, engaging local communities and participatory spirit. The first +++ edition will be held on the slopes of Jelica mountain, near Čačak, central Serbia aka Šumadija, about 2 hours and 150 km of driving from Belgrade. The location is the perfect glade with a view, in the middle of the woods in untouched nature, with several nearby clearings for the camp and program content.
An important part of the event is the conceptualization of the location itself, the stage and all of the accompanying service objects (bar, rest area, welcome desk, workshop tent, food tent...) will be creations of local artists and architects, and built in the days prior to the start of the event in a separate workshop, DIT process. The aim is to create a unique, functional and beautiful environment for everyone involved, with love and respect towards the natural surroundings and the landscape.
Food and the relation to the local context will also be very much in the focus, offering two meals per day at affordable prices at our kitchen, blending local, healthy food products and recipes together with finest international vegetarian dishes courtesy of our master of the kitchen Gaelle Leenhardt.
We are aspiring to new levels of joy with the combination of natural surroundings, food, music and the overall participatory atmosphere. The event is open for all ages, while under 18-year olds need to be accompanied by parents or guardians. We are family- and pet-friendly!
Music is at the heart of +++. Carefully selected artists from Serbia, the region and the rest of the world will be presenting extended sets, with enough time for the music to naturally unfold in the environment. First-class PA system (Funktion One) will be supplied to ensure that the music is present in all corners of the event location, at the same time not making any noise pollution for the ones living in nearest villages.
+++ is an important step an authentic, community-driven event as a counterpoint to the ambitious and artistically unexciting festival (over)productions in Serbia and around. We are collaborating with like-minded events from Bulgaria, Slovenia and the USA.

+++ will be responsible towards the environment and the local people. We will deal with the locations with great care, and involve many local people around the village of Grab in the preparation and realization of the event.
We will get food, groceries and other utilities from local sources, focusing on home-grown vegetables, local rakija (spirit drinks), natural herbal juices, mushrooms etc. We will use redundant wood from the area and will not cut any "healthy" trees, while the event employs a clear LEAVE NO TRACE policy when it comes to waste, residue, technical water etc.
Waste will be separated and professionally disposed according to environmental regulations. The location will be prepared in order to be safe for visitors.
HOW YOUR SUPPORT WILL BE USED
An integral part of the +++ experience is the natural and self-built ambience of the event, focusing on nature-friendly buildings such as tipis, wigwams, domes and alike. We are seeking support to finance the materials for the custom-designed stage and all accompanying service and program tents, basic camp infrastructure, sun shading for the audience and signalization around the location.
Note that +++ is non-profit and community-driven event in which all staff are volunteering. The event aims to become sustainable only based on reasonably priced tickets sales, as well as bar and kitchen income, plus an odd private donation. Majority of the material needs of the event itself will be realized through in-kind donations of local and Belgrade-based companies. There will be no branding at the event, as well as no partnerships with corporate sponsors. Local businesses will be supported and promoted.
We have put together various rewards, also relying on the work of some of the artists involved with the event, as well as the free access to year-long programs of the two best Belgrade clubs. A variety of high-quality merchandize from selected materials and a variety of designs will be produced specially for the backers of the campaign. If you are based in Serbia, year-long free access to Drugstore and/or 20/44 are of special value, or if you are pledging from abroad you can transfer this part of the reward to your Belgrade-based friend. All pledges of more than $50 earn you tickets for the actual event, plus free transportation to the location from Belgrade and back, merch and meals during the event.
Risks and challenges
As the event is limited to 300 visitors and given the extensive
event-production experience of our team, we are expecting to have a smooth running event. The only challenge we can imagine is the probability of bad weather, which is currently very low based on prognosis.
