Music breaks free…
Yesterday, Fabrika hostel’s Jungle Room hosted the official press conference of the eagerly awaited Tbilisi Open Air Festival. The annual event will take place on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of June at Lisi Wonderland for its 10th anniversary.
The organizers launched the event and thanked their sponsors, TBC Bank being the main one. Everyone was waiting for the official line up that disclosed the festival’s headline Franz Ferdinand. He will be on the main stage on the Friday night, with the local MokuMoku as the support band. They also announced the coming of famous UNKLE, Tobias, David August and the Freedom Fighters, among many others.
The watchword of the gathering is Freedom, and its founder Achiko Guledani explains why: “This area is for everybody, this is a free area where different people can love each other, be together, and not be bothered by each other’s existence, rather it is quite the opposite. This is what Tbilisi Open Air is.”
This festival has been a go-to event in the country since 2009, when they held a very successful first edition. At that time, it was the largest scale festival to ever take place in Georgia. Since then, the festival has been growing and each year welcomes very famous international artists.
The goal of the festival is to host international as well as local musicians and offer a large range of musical genres to the public. People can enjoy high quality music as well as visual arts, which creates a complete and magical experience. The aim is for people to feel like they are in a world apart, where happiness and freedom rule. And precisely, for its 10th anniversary, the slogan is “10 years of equality and diversity”. Thousands of people from different backgrounds, origins and opinion will be able to gather one more time peacefully in this delirious environment.
We cannot wait to discover the surprises in store at the 10th anniversary edition!
