🎂🍾🥂 SoundTrackFest is proud to celebrate this third anniversary (1/9/2016 – 1/9/2019) with all its followers. The beginnings are always difficult times, and starting a new project from scratch is something complex, despite having years of previous experience in the world of soundtracks.
But one more year, there you have SoundTrackFest, running full throttle, with more than 4,200 followers on Facebook that testify and support the strength of the project; followers that have to be thanked for their interest, their time, their support, and their affection.
