The Baalbeck Festival was held in Jdeideh last year for security concerns. It was the first time in 15 years that the International Festival was held outside the city’s ancient ruins. However, Nayla de Freige, President of Baalbeck International Festival’s executive committee, told Executive that they are hoping to bring back the festival to Baalbeck this year.
I’ve been to Baalbeck a couple of years ago and to be honest, something needs to be done around the ancient ruins and in the city to attract the tourists. There’s absolutely nothing you can do there except attend the festival.
The 2014 Program for the Baalbeck Festival wasn’t announced yet.
