Under the sign of the cornflower


The Directorate of the Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk Festival has announced the programme of the 2024 Arts Forum. Rock hits, dancing until morning, jazz organ performances — scan the QR code, study the programme and choose what appeals to you the most.

The main events of the 33rd Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk International Festival of Arts will be held from July 11th to 14th. Children’s and adult song contests will traditionally become the cherry on the cake. This year, the cornflower holiday over the Dvina River is going to be full of pleasant surprises again. Interesting ideas allow Slavianski Bazaar to remain fashionable and modern, while preserving the main thing — its soul.

In addition to traditional programmes in the Summer Amphitheatre, such as the opening and closing concerts of the forum, The Union State Invites concert, the contest of young pop song performers, Chanson concert, KVN comedy show, the audience will be able to appreciate a new feature — the Guests from the Future project. It involves the participation of about 3,000 people: children, youth, bloggers, ticktockers.

The programme of the Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk is abundant with soloists — Oleg Gazmanov, Dmitry Malikov, Stas Piekha, Sergey Lazarev, Lyubov Uspenskaya, Vladimir Presnyakov Jr., Victoria Aleshko, Yaroslav Sumishevsky and Ani Lorak will perform concerts at the Vitebsk Concert Hall. The venue will also host a plastic performance by Egor Druzhinin. The Dream Dance Fest project will delight the audience with all the variety of the dance palette — from folk dance to technical contemporary.

Here is great news for fans of rock music, which returns to the Summer Amphitheatre. The Symphony Orchestra of the National State Television and Radio Company will perform for the first time during the big rock panorama.
Another innovation that the organisers have introduced at the request of the audience is a dance floor with Dushevnoye Radio in front of the Vitebsk Concert Hall. The best groovy hits inviting to burst into dance will be played there until the morning.

The festival programme of the Vitebsk Regional Philharmonic will consist entirely of jazz music. It is noteworthy that for the first time in forum’s history, jazz will be played on the organ accompanied by percussion instruments. This is another bright touch to the rich musical palette of the Slavianski Bazaar. Within its framework, a new tradition of twinning festivals will be established.
The theatre programme is also up to the mark. A landmark premiere is waiting for the audience at the Yakub Kolas National Academic Drama Theatre. The mastermind of the Theatre Laboratory, Professor of GITIS [the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts] Alexander Barmak will bring Hamlet to Vitebsk, which will be performed in the Belarusian language for the first time.
