This will be the first time in the 18-year history of the Dobroslavtsi airfield that the military facility is used to host a public happening.
On June 24-25, 2011, Bulgaria saw the first ever Elevation festival event, which gathered Jamiroquai, 30 Seconds to Mars, Morcheeba, Stereo MCs, Delinquent Habits and Cypress Hill among others. The Bulgarian bands that took part in the festival were Ostava, Tri O Five, Monyx, Sepuko 6 and Odd Crew, as well as the Djs from Metropolis, DJ Marten, DJ Rawland and TV and radio host Krasimir Moskov.
The second day of the event was marred by a storm with gusty winds causing the ban of access to the site where the event was being held - near the mountain town of Razlog. The performances were scheduled to begin at 2 pm with Delinquent Habits, Gentleman, Cypress Hill and 30 Seconds To Mars taking the stage, but were cancelled over the damaged stage and dangerous weather. This was to be Cypress Hill first concert in Bulgaria. Morcheeba had their first gig in Bulgaria on June 20, 2010 as part of the summer music festival ParkLive.
