At the first two editions of the Danube Culture Festival – Dunavfest, held in 2011 and 2012 in Belgrade, the Ring Ring Association participated in the design of the musical part of the program.

. . .

The Danube Culture Festival – Dunavfest, was launched in 2011 with the following objectives: 1) promotion of the cultural heritage of Danube countries, 2) international cooperation in the fields of culture and heritage through artistic creation, 3) utilization of the heritage of Belgrade and Serbia as a source of inspiration for new artistic works, 4) activation of new audiences and encouragement of young creativity at an international level, 5) development of cultural tourism, and 6) utilization of the potential of the Belgrade Fortress.

The festival was organized by the Public Enterprise Belgrade Fortress with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Belgrade City Assembly.

The wider area of the Belgrade Fortress and the Danube River sparked the idea for the festival and proved to be an inspiring venue for its hosting.

Programmatically, the festival offered a wide variety of events, including performances, concerts, exhibitions, workshops, and more. The Ring Ring Association was involved in the first two editions of the festival as part of the music program.
