The Golden Drum Festival was created during the period, characterized by the opening of the Central and Eastern European economies to the free market. The rapid transfer of market-oriented knowledge from the West, was refined by the local traditions and features, which molded a unified mental and conceptual environment. The experience from the comparable environment was propitious for the development of the industry in the geographical entity which was then encouragingly referred to as the New Europe.

“The thirst for the continual development and the economic crisis changed the attitude towards the economy in several democracies; however, in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, well-known concepts of growth and consumerism are still predominating”, says Mojca Briščik, the president of Golden Drum, and adds that the Golden Drum Festival also follows the reformed attitude by supporting the exchange of the most creative ideas. “For the world of tomorrow, we all need new approaches that will exceed the patterns of the economy of yesterday. For this reason, we will remain the festival of creativity of the New Europe.”
