Summary/Abstract: The current text is a new stage in the attempt to expose the pattern of the multi-genre Sofia Music Weeks Festival. Established in the early 1970s, the event has developed various aspects in its history of almost half a century. The creative practices are treated in a more general sense: through following the way of constructing of a concrete, but large-scale festival project from its genesis to different transformations and accumulations, especially typical of its early decades.The focus is on the formation of the festival model as well as on some of its main components. Gradually, Sofia Music Weeks unfolded and blended with other arts (fine arts, cinema, photography) by searching for a variety of non-musical events, not only in their rich sidebars. The changes in the festival model are seen as a process, in their dynamics, corresponding to the dynamics of the socio-political and socio-cultural changes.
