The purpose of the event is to promote the idea of bugle calls that add colour and often give testimony to identity of a town. The tradition of Lublin’s bugle calls dates back to the 16th century: the first bugle call signal was heard in the streets of the city on 7 May 1575. Today, it is played every day at noon from the balcony of the Lublin Town Hall.
Every year, the festival brings together over 40 trumpet players from major Polish cities. The presentation of the bugle-call will be accompanied by the performance of a brass band and the marching of the bugle-callers.
It starts at 3 pm in the Old Town on August 15 (admission free).
