The international accordion festival celebrates its 10th anniversary! Musicians from Ukraine, Russia, the Republic of Moldova, Spain, Israel, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia/Herzegovina and Germany play a variety of compositions from classical modernism and jazz together, sending a message of peace to the world.

In light of the current wars, the anniversary edition has the motto Peace Dream, named after the composition “Peace Dream” by the Spanish composer Gorka Hermosa, which will be premiered here alongside works by Vladimir Genin, Mikolaj Majkusiak, Artem Nizhnik, Gorka Hermosa and Eduard Akhanov. International and renowned artists such as Radu Ratoi, Arkady Shilkloper, Gorka Hermosa, Marko Ševarlić, Dragana Gajić, Sergei Sadovoy, Sergei Osokin, Eduard Akhanov and conductor Miran Vaupotić show what the accordion can achieve in the field of classical modernism and jazz.

Musically, the festival’s spectrum extends to the presentation of a wide range of compositions, and an alphorn will also be used.​ The dominant themes are love and death, as well as war and the hope for peace – the musicians come from Ukraine, Russia, the Republic of Moldova, Spain, Israel, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Germany. They make music together and send a message of peace to the world.
