A Spirited Burgas

The second edition of Spirit of Burgas Festival in Bulgaria attracted 28,000 people to the Black Sea coastal resort, doubling the number that attended in 2008.

The opening night headlined by Faith No More was a 10,000-capacity sellout, with the two following nights falling a few hundred short of that.

The event takes place on the central beach at Burgas, the second-largest city and seaside resort on the coast. It’s sponsored by MTV Europe – which will screen edited highlights later in the month – as well as Tuborg, Mobiltel, Jack Daniel’s, Jacobs and DSK Bank.

The acts helping Spirit Of Burgas double its numbers Aug. 14-16 also included Fun Lovin’ Criminals, The Crystal Method, Clawfinger, Dreadzone and LTJ Bukem.
