The beats are loud.
The lights are blinding.
The atmosphere is euphoric.
Your friends are with you, your troubles at home.
You feel free.
The party is on.

For the first time this year, OMOF has the honor to include UNDP on the list of partners and support of the festival. Within the framework of the project "Low Carbon Tourism", Operosa proudly contributes to the reputation of Montenegro as a new green and carbon neutral tourist destination in the heart of Europe. Evidence of this can be demonstrated by the fact that the Operosa is one of the few large festivals that minimally uses environmentally harmful resources such as carbon dioxide.
OMOF and UNDP invite you to calculate your carbon footprint.
"For a young generation of Serbians and Montenegrins, cultural initiatives such as Operosa provide a sign that things are moving forward into the European mainstream."
