Just Forfunov Music Festival

17 Sep 13:00–21:30

GES-2 presents the Just Forfunov festival: 24 music groups and solo artists will perform on two stages over the course of one day.

This festival of current young music, the first in the history of GES-2, is named after a fictional character—Just Forfunov. He does not have a definite identity or face: his main quality is that it does not live according to schedules and timetables, is not bound by conditions and deadlines, but only does what he likes—just for fun. In the end, we all want to be Just Forfunov sometimes.

The festival participants are young musicians who are only just starting out in their careers. They are all aged from 14 to 22, play music of their own composition, and came to us through an open call. They all have different performing experience, genre preferences and musical backgrounds, but all together they create a sound that is relevant right now.

The festival will go on all day. Besides performances, at Platforms on the second floor a public programme will take place: games and public talks, a photo zone, a customization station—you can and should bring clothes that you want to customize, and add some spangles!
