Gradski Stadion Guča – stadium description
It's one of the most famous stadiums in all of Serbia but not because of football. This is the site of all major concerts during the annual trumpet festival, commonly known simply as Guča, by the small town's name. One of the biggest open air festivals across Europe increases the town's population of under 3,000 by literally hundreds of thousands.
This place is considered to be the 'trumpet capital' and this can be seen even in historical football chronicles. In 1950s local football team Dragacevo was supported by fans with short and loud trumpet cheers and won games were followed by celebrations, again with trumpets setting the rhythm.
Along with the festival (dating back to 1960) the famous Partizan came to town, seeing perhaps the largest crowd ever to get inside the local stadium, estimated at over 10,000 people. Of course this number may be doubled for music concerts, but only one similar result was set back in 1962, when FK Dragacevo faced another Serbian superpower, Crvena Zvezda.
Today's stadium has an uncovered western terrace and a smaller covered terrace in the west. Behind the southern goal stands the main administration building with a concert stage incorporated.
