The grand celebration of the TAKSIRAT 25 is scheduled for 07/12/2023, in Skopje. The organizers have already unveiled the program and the line-up of musical acts that attendees can look forward to.

The highlight of this year’s celebration brings together the TAKSIRAT residents, the renowned artists responsible for some of the most monumental concerts, and those who have not only shaped music genres but have also become synonymous with the “Taksirat” festival, or even more important, the team that has played a pivotal role in the festival’s survival. The Main Night, featuring performances by 10 diverse musical stars, will unfold across three stages set up in Skopje’s Boris Trajkovski Arena. This event will provide a shared platform for the new generation, the contemporary rebellious sound, and the global alternative and transcultural electronic music scene.

Adding to the excitement this year is the arrival of ACID ARAB from France, known for their psychedelic-oriental electronic sound. ACID ARAB is a Parisian music collective celebrated for their transcultural and eclectic mix of musical styles from around the world. Additionally, we can look forward to the genre fusion of DUB FX, an extraordinary Australian musician, visionary, street artist, and social activist. DUB FX will be showcasing his highly anticipated album “Infinite Reflection” at TAKSIRAT 25, and he promises to introduce a new dimension to his live performances.
