Both venues will take place in the National University of Music Bucharest.

The Festival itself will be a harp feast and will gather inland harpists as well as outland ones, to celebrate 125 years of Harp playing in Romania. Although, the main goal of The Festival is to promote the harp within the young generation, hoping that these ones will be more and more attracted by the instrument.
