This summer will be held the first Hedonism Festival. Everyone who speaks about the fest’s music content notices its originality in comparison with another Ukrainian festivals.
Zapaska, Sinoptik, Hindu, Secret Avenue, Blooms Corda, Neural Clan, Mari Cheba, Colaars, Myopia are fresh names and young blood of our national stage. The international segment of the program is mainly the British groups: Is Tropical, Marcus Марр, Hot Chip as DJ set. The German group Lake People will be as a bonus. The organizers are proud of such selection of artists and make it plain that something typical, predictable, trite is not interesting for them.
One of the fest’s aim is to efface the genres boundaries. There will be no real hip-hop artists, pop-, techno-, house-artists at the festival. The artist’s genre is identified by his name and individual style. But they are all combined by two main factors: hedonism and actuality in the world context of modern music. In the organizers’ opinion the Ukrainian artists are quite able to reach the level of the famous international groups. Hedonism Festival is not a mega huge festival with dozens of headliners where the Ukrainian artists are opening performers.
The party will be practically day-and-night – from evening Friday (July 29) to morning Monday (August 1). That’s why the organizers have personal attitude towards each artist. In the fest’s program are no outsiders and artists who are not worth listening to.
There will be also the lecture course Kiev Music Summit (on Saturday and Sunday) with master-classes and different topics: musical fundraising, management, promotion.
All fest’s guests will have a chance to make photos with artists.
