The Republic of Macedonia is a country located in the central Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe. It gained its independence from Yugoslavia peacefully in 1991. Bordering Serbia to the north, Greece to the south, Bulgaria to the east, Albania to the west, and Kosovo to the northwest, Macedonia is a landlocked country.

The capital of Macedonia, as well as the biggest city in this small country is Skopje. Out of the 2,072,086 people living on the 25,713 sq km of land, more than a quarter of the population is situated in the capital of Skopje.
Your performances in the city of Skopje will be on Macedonia Square.
In other cities, the performances will be mainly on city squares.

Bands - you can sell your CD's after your performance. It would be the best if the price is 500 denars, since at that price people would buy them, if they are more expensive, they won't. The standard here is not very high, and at very low prices people buy pirates, or second class CD's.
