Brave! Factory Festival announce initial line-up

FestivalsNews

Brave! Factory Festival which takes place in Kiev, Ukraine – starting on the Independence Day of Ukraine on 23rd August and running till 25th, have just announced their first acts.

After successfully hosting of the fourth “Strichka” festival, it became clear that Kiev’s electronic festival scene has great potential, and that there is an eager audience. Therefore, for the first time, the team will break away from the borders of Closer art-center and upscale to welcome more than six thousand guests to Kiev’s Metrobud building. This will also be the first time the territory is used for an event of this type and with over 3000 square metres devoted to five dance floors, each corresponding to a specific direction of electronic music and a lineup featuring Robert Hood, Octave One, Egyptian Lover, Simian Mobile Disco, Derrick Carter, Jus-Ed, Nastia and Jane Fitz to name but a few, this is one festival you should check out!

“Now what is going to happen when a huge industrial property welcomes dozens of such ideas and becomes a place for electronic music acts, contemporary art installations and urban culture objects? It’s going to be Brave! Factory festival. Warehouses and a machine hall will turn into a rave-space and a gallery, walls will become huge canvases, concrete platforms and unmapped coppices will become concert stages and daytime dance floors. Elevators, traveling bridges, machines, old barrels and pipes will transform into installations, seats, balconies, cafes and other beautiful somethings. More than fifty cutting edge and legendary musicians, deejays and contemporary artists from around the world… The factory is brave enough to hospitably host all of these gifted, strong and therefore sometimes weird personalities and help them in every possible way. The factory is even brave enough to cut production plans and just go dance…”
