KUBANA gloriously rocked in Riga!

International music festival KUBANA has rocked Riga and became a bright event that unexpectedly sprang up in the center of Latvian capital. From 6 to 9 of August Lucavsala island turned into the Island of Freedom. About 15 thousand people visited it during these days. Among them almost 6 thousand people came from Russia to Riga especially for this event.

«I am glad that KUBANA has found new home – beautiful, welcoming and cosy. Everyone who came to KUBANA in Riga has fallen in love with this city and I am sure will come back! – says Iliya Ostrovskii, producer of KUBANA. – Thank you, Riga, for your help and support which we needed so much! I hope that KUBANA will become a new bridge that helps to save and build up friendship between Latvian and Russian people. Viva KUBANA! Viva Riga!»

The preparations for the festival were held in extremely short dates, but by the time of arrival of the first guests all the infrastructure on the island was ready. Show venue, huge stage, camping grounds, the beach, food-court and fun fair – everything was on place. But the most important was the atmosphere everybody value the festival so much. It stayed the same.

KUBANA-2015 hosted more than 30 bands from Russia, Belarus, the Great Britain, Holland, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. For four days of the festival we have seen and listened to such bands as HIM, D12, Hollywood Undead, GUS GUS, Leningrad, Dolphin, Bravo, Infected Mushroom, Trubetskoy, Skindred, NAÏVE, Koza Mostra, Animal JazZ and others. Known for its multiform festival stayed true to itself and invited a special guest Lev Leshchenko whose performance was welcomed most warmly and sincere. The crowd of rock lovers yelled his name and gave encores. After the show kubanoids formed a long line to the autograph-session zone to meet Lev Leshchenko face to face.

KUBANA was honored by the visit of the mayor of Riga. Nil Ushakov came to Lucavsala twice – at the grand opening and to see the show of Leningrad. «It's a great chance for Riga to get this new format of city event, new music and new bands», – mentioned the head of Latvian capital.

And KUBANA’s success is in great sound and magnificent stage, together with well-chosen line-up and coherent work of all the festival departments. This year KUBANA team was truly international – promoters from Russia, light engineers from Czech Republic, sound engineers and stage structures from Poland, public utilities from Latvia. And even if we consider KUBANA-2015 to be experimental festival, quickly moved from Russia to Latvia under anything but simple circumstances, we can confidently say that everything went exactly as it has to be at true European festival of the high level.
