For those who fancy an eventful weekend away from Kyiv, this festival is a good contender.

A debutante on the Ukrainian festival scene, the three-day event promises the strongest lineup Ukraine has ever seen, a mix of local and international performers, including Evanescence, White Lies, The Rasmus, Shifty’s Crazy Town, Joachim Garraud, Apollo 440, Brainstorm, DDT, Bumbox, Voply Vidopliasova and others.

The location picked for it was Novoselitsa Park 12 kilometers away from Dnipropetrovsk, an eastern Ukrainian city. The festival will have three stages, including lounge, beginners’ and main scene.
The cherry on the cake is a big screen on the festival grounds that will broadcast the final game of Euro 2012 football championship, which will take place on July 1 in Kyiv.

Three days will each have seven to nine performers on main stage in addition to lounge and beginners stages. Evanescence, Rasmus and Ukrainian band Okean Elzy will be headliners.

A two-ways bus ticket from Kyiv to the festival is available for Hr 350. Another option is to take a train to Dnipropetrovsk (Hr 140-220) and get to Novoselitsa by a festival marshrutka, or minibus.

VIP tickets with special options are available at Hr 890 per day and Hr 2,290 for the whole three-day festival.

The Best City.UA festival. June 28-July1. Dnipropetrovsk, Novoselitsa park. Hr 390 per day, Hr 990 for the whole festival.
