OUR HISTORY

The first festival in 2019 focused on “Diversity and Interaction”, with just under 500 guests who enjoyed music, arts and a variety of interactive activities. More than 20 DJs, singers and bands from Central Asia (Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan) and the world (Japan, France, Germany, UK) performed on stage over three days, with good media coverage as this was the first event of its sort in Kyrgyzstan. The focus on local development included a sustainable waste management component, a youth volunteer camp and hospitality and food trainings with local guesthouses.

The theme of the festival in 2021 was “Recovery”, providing a space for participants and artists to come together following the difficulties of the COVID-19 crisis, as well as supporting the revival of tourism and cultural events in Kyrgyzstan. Despite uncertainties and risks, the 2021 edition was a significant success, with 1000 guests from more than 30 countries, with a successful COVID-19 health and hygiene concept (no C19 cases detected or linked to festival visitors), positive feedback from visitors, local and international media interest, an increasing number of musicians and new stages and zones, as well as a widely appreciated contemporary arts gallery presenting the results of an arts residence.
