On 10 and 11 July 2015 a musical kaleidoscope will color up Bansko. "Bansko Beat" will bring together popular artists, indie rock groups and reggae bands.

"Bansko Beat" will unfold a musical world before the audience in which some will find new music, while others will have the pleasure of hearing favorite songs live. The first performers to hit the stage of the fest are James Arthur , Mo 'Kalamity & The Wizards and Shawn Lee Ping Pong Orchestra .

The first headliner of Bansko Beat - James Arthur is an absolute hit. The brit became popular in 2012 by taking the first place in the X Factor UK by storm. Immediately after that came his first single - "Impossible". Although the original song is performed by Shontelle it was after Arthur that it  gained global popularity and became the favorite to over 2.5 million owners of the single worldwide. In 2014 the turmoil in his personal life shook his “career boat”, but the boy from Middlesbrough managed to stay on board. In his personal Twitter account he wrote: " 2014 has also taught me that even when the chips are down I still have an unbelievable fan base worldwide! The support has been exceptional. ".  When talking about himself he is quite brief: "My name is James and I'm a songwriter, singer …. and an artist". Fans hope that this year James’s  second album will come out.

The French band Mo 'Kalamity and The Wizards are the reggae surprise of the festival. This year will be their first live performance in Bulgaria. Their way of life is their music. Peace, love and positive energy comes out of each line of their reggae songs that Mo' Kalamity herself writes and composes. Their sound is strongly influenced by her country of Cape Verde. Mo ' began her career as a backup singer, but it was not long before she decided to form her own group of "wizards". The rhythm is reggae, and the message is for love. The sound that perfectly suits Bansko Beat.
