Kamyanitsa World Music Festival 2013

The Fifth "Kamyanіtsa" Folk Festival will be held the first weekend of September. For the first time in its history the event will last not for one but for two days, there will also be a tent camp on the site and some other pleasant improvements.

The Festival will traditionally be held on the picturesque grounds of the Museum of Folk Architecture, Rural Life and Craft which is only 4 km away from Minsk and known for its largest collection of Belarusian authentic wooden architecture of XVIII-XX. All the proceeds from ticket sales, as in previous years, will go to the museum, helping to preserve the unique exhibits.

The tickets for the jubilee "Kamyanіtsa" Folk Festival will be sold in advance, and performances will take place on several stages simultaneously. At the Festival you will see the "cream" of the Belarusian folk musicians along with the invited foreign guests whose names are kept in secret yet.

In 2011 our special guest was Oleg Skripka (Ukraine) with his ethno-disco program, in 2012 we invited "Ivan Kupala" band (Russia) who performed a special program based on the songs of Polesie region in Belarus.

Our Festival is developing and expanding with every year. From now on it is not any more just a Belarusian festival but an international event. It is not just music and authentic landscape but also music, national cuisine, traditional games, arts and craft. There will also be many interesting innovations this time. But the main goal of "Kamyanitsa"remains the same - we want to give the audience the unique atmosphere of harmony which we draw from folk songs and traditions - says Sergei Chegrinets, the coordinator of the festival.
