Balkan Breakdown


PARK SLOPE If you’ve ever been looking for an excuse to make it inside Grand Prospect Hall, have a soft spot for Balkan music, or both, this weekend’s Zlatne Uste Golden Festival should satisfy both cravings (as well as any leftover urges for ouzo.) This year marks the 26th edition of the festival, which features live Balkan music, dance instruction, and a complimentary meze buffet. Doors open on Friday at 7pm; at 7:30, a dance workshop will be held, followed by five hours of live music (including two sets by the Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band). On Saturday, over fifty bands will perform over four stages between 6pm and 1:30am.
