The 7th Kharibulbul International Music Festival has been held in Azerbaijan, bringing together internationally acclaimed singers and musicians.

The music festival, which bears the name of the flower symbolising Shusha, was first organised on the mysterious Jidir Duzu Plain of Shusha in May 1989.

The music festival featured spectacular concerts and performances in Jidir Duzu Plain, Isa Bulag Spring as well as the streets and squares of Shusha city.

Scientific and theoretical discussions were held as part of the event. The concert programs were also held in Agjabadi, Barda and Baku.

Kharibulbul Music Festival was held every year until the Armenian occupation in 1992.

The music festival was re-launched after Azerbaijan's victory in the Second Garabagh War.

Co-organized by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and Azerbaijan Culture Ministry, the 7th Kharibulbul International Music Festival featured spectacular concert programs, exhibitions and many other events.

President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva participated in the festival's opening ceremony.

The official opening of Shusha - the Cultural Capital of the Islamic World 2024 and the festival's opening ceremony were held on Jidir Duzu Plain.

The large-scale event brought together ICESCO member states and their on-stage performance groups.
