The Atlas Weekend Festival is known by all Kievan festival goers! It was a great success last year with major names taking to the stage from abroad and home-grown talent such as The Prodigy and Monatik. For 4 days in summer last year, the skies of the capital were filled with good vibes, quality music and the laughter of thousands. It’s an event that was impossible to miss! This year is set to out-shine last years, with tickets into the VDNG venue! With the Chemical Brothers, Lost Frequencies and many more artists from around the world travelling to Kyiv- it’s got the title of the “biggest music festival in Eastern Europe” for a reason! ]

BeLive festival is much more than just a music festival- it’s a 4-day long, multicultural celebration of culture from diverse domains and origins, from far and from near. Hosted at the NSC Olymypsky stadium, the festival is one of the first in Ukraine to unite cinema, music, standup, blogging, art, street sports, children’s entertainment, street food and more, each given the same priority and their own area! As well as big headliners, the festival welcomes emerging talent in this field- the emphasis is to witness it live! With this festival, you’re guaranteed to find something which interests you, no matter what your style of music or whether you prefer to delight in other art forms!
