This report describes the inclusion of festivals of classical music in Kosovo from 2000 to 2017. Besides the short history of musical life in Kosovo, in our focus is the evidence of
classical music festivals in Kosovo from 2000 to 2017, the number of editions held, the character of these festivals. Based on the collected data, for the period from 2000 to 2017, six festivals
were evident. These festivals have an international character. Two of these festivals have also a competitive character. Based on the organizations, festivals’ content and in their concept, we can say that from 2000 until now, classical music festivals reflect a special period in the history of festivals in Kosovo. In the absence of a concert hall in Kosovo and the necessary financial support of these festivals, Kosovo should have as soon as possible a proper institutional policy on music activities.
