On August 11-13, a charity rock festival “Woodstock Ukraine” will take place in Lviv region. It will be held for the sixth time. This year the festival has a new location – the Tsuniv airfield, which is 30 km from Lviv. The purpose of the festival is to organize a charity holiday. Each year, a charity event “Heart to Heart” collects funds throughout Ukraine to purchase medical equipment. It involves about 20,000 volunteers. “We organize this festival in order to thank the volunteers who work within the framework of the action,” said Bohdan Ishchuk, Head of the Board of the All-Ukrainian Charitable Foundation “Heart to Heart”, at a press briefing at Ukraine Crisis Media Center.
The program of the festival includes performances of about 50 groups, eight of which are from Poland, one – from Italy and one – from Belarus. Such Ukrainian groups as Epolets, DETACH, Korali will also perform on Woodstock’s stage.
Every morning at Woodstock Ukraine will start with yoga classes given by the meditation studio and Mantra HOUSE. Besides, visitors will attend a variety of movie shows and lectures conducted by writers and travelers. “The festival will be working non-stop. It will be full of different events so that people for sure wouldn’t get bored,” informed Anna Antoniuk, art-director of the Woodstock Ukraine Festival.
“The festival is a separate world, country, planet and the atmosphere in which one can immerse oneself for several days. This is a good opportunity to get to know new musicians,” shared his impressions Oleksiy Varenchyk, DETACH frontman and festival participant.
The festival will be held with the support of the Polish company “Play” and the company “Plastics”. Admission is free. Everyone interested should register to get to the festival. This can be done either on the web site or at the registration point upon arrival at the location.
