White gloves and whistles, Saudi princes chased by young women in skimpy schoolgirl outfits, bikini-clad ninjas...

Global Gathering was not just for electronic music lovers.

The annual summer event is a haven for the whimsical, wacky and just plain weird. The festival is held annually in several East European countries, England and South Korea.

In Ukraine, the main site is Chaika Airfield outside Kyiv, although fans can still catch the sister concert God's Kitchen, in Odessa and Lviv, on Aug. 23.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
