About the Festival

Since 2022, we have been organizing “Bu Festival Bizim,” an alternative music and technology gathering in Istanbul, emphasizing the values of “equality, inclusivity, and togetherness.” The first edition took place at Bomontiada for three days in November 2022, while the second one spanned across various venues in Istanbul for ten days in November 2023, in collaboration with the metropolitan municipality. Hosting numerous speeches, workshops, stand-up shows, and concerts in both editions, the festival has become a significant platform in the music industry.

A comprehensive program featuring concerts, workshops, stand-up shows, and interviews awaits you at the festival, which will be held for the third time in 2024
