Rocking away the Ukrainian way!

Slavske Rock Festival, July 31 – August 2,
Slavske village

This rowdy and exuberant summer rock festival is a self-conscious attempt to celebrate the fastmaturing Ukrainian rock scene while also raising awareness of ecological issues in the country’s picture-perfect Carpathian mountain region. Held in the picturesque resort of Slavske (better known as a popular winter-time skiing destination) the festival motto is ‘I love the Carpathians!’ and this enthusiasm for the natural beauty of Ukraine’s mountainous Western regions is set to be reflected in a number of extreme sports and folklore addons which will offer entertainment to everyone in addition to the rich selection of Ukrainian and regional bands scheduled to appear. International groups including Germany’s ‘Officer I am High’ and ‘Mamasweed’ while be joined by Poland’s ‘Czerwone Gitary’ and a whole host of Ukrainian stars including ‘Bila Vezha’ and ‘Pan Puppets’. Festivalgoers are asked to make sure the clean up after themselves and a series of movies highlighting the damage caused to the environment by litter will also be screened.
