It made it a destination of many world-renowned stars and foreign audience, who have been present on the stage of this prestigious and illustrious festival.
In 2006, and following this succinct historical chronology, the festival was institutionalized as an international festival with its commissariat that selected ONCI its preferred partner for its organization.
It is important to mention that the cultural and artistic ascent of this festival to the ranks of international
festivals must be accompanied by the civil society commitment in the field of cultural investment, for a new dynamic of culture and arts.
This would also guarantee the sustainability of cultural action and provide opportunities for the revival of tourism and the cultural and touristic
development of the archaeological sites throughout the country, like the international festivals that function this way.
