The opening of the festival was held in the inner courtyard of Neamţ Fortress. The show was spectacular, as the folk music blended perfectly with the medieval atmosphere created by the parade of princes and knights in clothing of the epoch. Here, in a defining space for Romanian history and culture, the audience could enjoy famous folk music artists.

Deriving from an idea advanced and discussed at the end of 2018, the event became, from its very first edition, the largest folk music festival in Romania, which brought together, in Neamţ County, well-known and much beloved artists of the genre, both from Romania and from abroad, among which we mention: Mircea Rusu, Maria Gheorghiu, Mircea Vanca, Adrian Bezna, Adrian Sărmășan, Dinu Olărașu, CALEnDAR Band, Fără Zahăr Band and many more.
