If by some drunken choice of destiny you’re in Romania this summer.. Surely you know what I mean when I say, stay away from Bucharest; and on that note, go to Timisoara! For five days of madness and all-round artistic debauchery under the guise of a Gipsy (that’s Romani for the politically correct) Arts Festival, kicking of the 6th of August.
IRAF (International Romani Arts Festival) will host the likes of Boban Markovic, Estelle Goldfarb, our very own Ovidiu Lipan Tandarica – and that’s just covering the music part of the festival. There’s dance, film, photography, anything goes. It looks so wonderfully chaotic, rather unmissable.
