The fifth edition of the Festival of independent music “Earthquake” is taking place at the Youth Cultural Center this Saturday, February 4th from 7 pm.
“Earthquake” is a music festival of the Macedonian independent record labels. Initiated by Sixtynine Records, “Napravi zaedno” and “PMG Recordings”, it has a completely open concept, which is constantly joined by members of the alternative scene. That scene is the only one in Macedonia that treats music as art and treasure. If this seems reasonable and interesting to you, join the “Earthquake”.

Tickets can be obtained at the box office of the YCC.
