‘Field of Songs’ folk music festival, Lviv Open Air Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life (1 Chernecha Hora Street), 16 May
Oral traditions and folk music have always played a central role in Ukrainian culture, and nowhere is this more true that in the agricultural communities of rural West Ukraine, where many of the Ukrainian nation’s most ancient traditions have remained safe throughout centuries of foreign rule and oppression. This early May celebration of Ukrainian folk music will be the perfect introduction into the genre for new arrivals to the city or a great way to reconnect to your Ukrainian roots for long-time fans of local folklore. Around 5,000 singers are expected to attend this landmark festival, making it one of the folk highlights of the Lviv spring calendar.
