07 August – 08 August 2020
Grape Festival was founded with the ambition to organize a middle-sized, European-level festival for the young generation with the dramaturgy focused on the global music scene. Both ecology and visual presentation play a huge role in the festival. The event takes place at an airport, and it lasts from Friday to Sunday morning without a pause. The festival area doesn’t close and includes a tent village.
6000 visitors attended the first year of the festival; at the moment, the capacity is at 30 000 attendees. Since 2015 the festival had been sold out every year. This happens also due to the festival being multi-genre. More than 100 artists (with approx. 30 being foreign) perform at seven stages. Two of those are dedicated exclusively to the techno/house and hip-hop genres.
