Slaveevi Noshti (Bulgarian: Славееви Hощи) or "Nightingales' Nights" in English, is an annual folk music and dance festival held in Aitos, Bulgaria. Each year the festival attracts individual performers, dance ensembles and folk choirs from all corners of Bulgaria. The mission of the festival is to preserve and popularize Bulgarian folk music, dance and culture as envisioned by the great Bulgarian composer and musician Filip Kutev, also native of Aitos. The festival was first held in 1968 and since then it has grown into a national competition.
The competition part of the festival has two dimensions: individual and group. All performers are divided into three age groups: below 14 years of age; 14-18 years of age; and over 18 years of age. The competition segments are as follows:
- Traditional folk signing performance (individual/group)
- Traditional music instrument performance (individual/group)
- Traditional dance performance (individual/group)
Since 1965 the National Festival of Bulgarian Folklore has taken place every five years in Koprivshtitsa, gathering musicians, artists and craftsmen from across Bulgaria. Featuring thousands of performing artists in a pastoral setting outside the town, the Koprivshtitsa festival is the only significant Bulgarian music event focusing on amateur performances, and the majority of authentic Bulgarian village music released during Communist rule was recorded in Koprivshtitsa by Balkanton during the 1970s and 80s
