Since 2001 it has staged more than 450 performances, during 7 festivals and a number of one-off events. Due to its decade-long activity, and the scope of events (both in terms of number of acts and stylistic variety) UH Fest is now a high profile event — a point of reference even.
Organisers say: We have been putting special emphasis on presenting unconventional approaches towards music and pinpointing individual national scenes, which are — more often than not — left uncovered by the domestic media and bypassed by the organisers of large-scale festivals.
Not focusing on genres is a principle that reflects in our overall activity and in the actual programming of our events. Any given member of our audience is likely to hear music s/he did not “intend to”; or from another point of view: explore something new. It is our deliberate strategy to juxtapose artists not just from different genres, but also with different approaches and moods. At our festivals the audience can hear a funny, joyous or even ecstatic performance next to a more “difficult” or abrasive show; we juxtapose the cerebral with the visceral, the intimate with the abstract, etc. We are confident that such exploration, inter-cultural communication (let it be between national cultures and/or subcultures) is a fertile ground for creative ideas, and a source of a new kind of joy.
