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.
