Vama Veche is much more than just a resort it is a state of mind and since its beginning the “Folk You!” festival has striven to maintain the energy that keeps this spirit alive. The musicians who sang on the stage of the festival over time have delighted thousands of “vamaioţi” at beach parties until dawn.
Even though in recent years the festival has not focused only on folk music, it has evolved into a phenomenon that gathers thousands of good music lovers on the most southern resort of the coast. In recent years, Tudor Gheorghe, Mircea Vintilă & Brambura, Mircea Baniciu, Florin Chilian, Zdob si Zdub Maria Gheorghiu, Emeric Set, Ashanti & ZAN, Marius Mihalache and Irina Sirbu are just some of singers who walked on the stage at “Folk You!” festival.
