3 Smoked Olives Island Festival

The Island

The Island is located on the Danube River, far away from the bustle of the cities, on the border between Romania and Bulgaria, more precisely near the crossing point between Calarasi [RO] & Silistra [BG], in Ostrov.

Yeah, it’s a real island

Being a real island, the only way to get on the island is by boat. The moment you put your feet on the boat you enter another world. A more natural one, with water, sand, a young forest and clear blue skies.

If you’re lucky, on some mornings, you will find hundreds of seagulls playing around on the beach.

This island is pure magic

When the Danube is at it’s highest, the island stays under water for more than 3 months and nobody can set foot on it.

The river cleans Europe after storms and brings a lot of driftwood along his water and leaves it on the island. That makes the island be a bit different each year.

It’s like nature’s perfect way of cleaning bad energy accumulated over the year.

Become an islander

  • Golden sand

    The sand on this island is smooth, fine and clean. It’s well prepared for your feet and it will offer you an experience of full freedom.

    When the sun is at it’s highest, the sand will become very hot and we recommend that you wear a pair of flip flops after a refreshing swim in the river.

  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    With a great music festival comes the great responsibility to take care of our beautiful island. So, be an extraordinary islander and recycle your trash as best as you can.

    The island is green and clean, let’s keep it that way.

  • Freedom

    The tent gives you a feeling of freedom. You have your own gateway to nature and you don’t have to worry about keys.

    And if by any chance you can’t find your way back to your tent you can always take a nap in the chill area filled with hammocks big enough for two islanders.
