Kazantip Republic, or Republic Z, has opened its borders for the 20th time this summer. 

In two decades, not only has Kazantip become the biggest post-Soviet electronic music festival, it also has gained a reputation as a place with no rules, with drugs featuring heavily.

The Vinnie Who band from Denmark, DJ Unvolved from Portugal, DJ Steve Snare from Germany, Auroraw band from Russia and the Maneken from Ukraine are among the festival’s performers this year.

The festival has moved a few times, and is now held in Popovka near Yevpatoria, in western Crimea. The festival’s symbol is a yellow retro-style suitcase. If you register your suitcase in advance, it will give you free entrance to the festival grounds.

Kazantip. Through Aug. 15. Popovka, Crimea. Hr 800-2,000
