Remember the date. This one is not to be missed if you’re in Kyiv on June 22-23. Kraina Mriy or the Land of Dreams, the biggest ethnic and world music festival in Kyiv, is happening this weekend on Spivoche Pole by the Lavra.

Organized by Oleg Skrypka, the legendary Ukrainian rock musician, the festival has been going for nine years, rain or shine.

The main aim of the festival is to revive traditional Ukrainian culture and to expose Ukrainians to other ethnic cultures, so the bands invited to play reflect that policy. Apart from rock and world music playing on the main stage, alternative stages will be offering ethnic Kobza concerts, master classes on Ukrainian dance and crafts, and other activities for adults and children.

Krayina Mriy. June 22-23. Spivoche pole. Hr 30-80
