Do you love music festivals so much that you are ready to travel halfway around the world just to attend them? Welcome to Eastern Europe, where you have the chance to ‘enjoy top musical acts, flaunt and/or observe latest fashion trends, and discover cultures still unaffected by mass tourism,’ according to Forbes Magazine.
The journalist of the Magazine Stephan Rabimov prepared a list of famous festivals in Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Hungary, and Croatia. The list includes Atlas Weekend in Kyiv, Ukraine, Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Poland, Ultra Europe in Split, Croatia, Afisha Picnic in Moscow, Russia, and Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary.
Atlas Weekend, the biggest festival in Ukraine, was founded in 2015. Since then, it has been held every summer and attracted thousands of guests. Last year over 527k music lovers visited the festival.
‘This year promises to one-up its own status with the help of Black Eyed Peas, Liam Gallagher, Télépopmusik and such vastly different acts as the Russian hipster sensation Monetochka and the Israeli Eurovision diva Netta. Fashion has been a progressive part of Ukraine’s nation branding in recent years, so Atlas-goers are bound to be rocking the most style-forward looks.’ The journalist reports.
Atlas Weekend 2019 will take place on 9-14 July at VDNG (Expocenter of Ukraine). Learn more about the festival.
