Festival Atlas Weekend 2021 from 07.07.2021 to 11.07.2021. VDNG
Since 2015, every summer there is a week that breaks into our lives with a stream of incredible emotions of joy, delight and happiness. This is a real endorphin explosion, which charges us with positive for the next year and we look forward to the next event. And it's called the Atlas Weekend Festival.
Atlas Weekend is considered the largest and largest festival in Ukraine. From the very beginning, he tirelessly gained momentum both in popularity, the number of visitors, the magnitude of the fame of the artists, and in the quality of the event itself.
The first Atlas Weekend took place at an open-air venue called Platform Art Factory, which is located near the Lesnaya metro station. Then there were only two scenes. And the festival lasted only one weekend. Of the artists were mainly of Ukrainian origin: Boombox, Jamala, Fringe, Carriages, Onuka, The Hardkiss and others. Then about three dozen stars appeared on the stage of the Atlas Weekend, and attendance was limited to twenty thousand people.
The next Atlas Weekend will move to VDNH. This venue will become a traditional and permanent venue for the festival. In 2016, performing artists replenished to 150, among which were: Apocalyptica, GusGus, Time Machine, Spleen, Kwabs. The number of people who want to have fun, compared with the debut year, has increased seven times. Starting in 2017, tickets for Atlas Weekend begin to be sold in Early bird format.
The third Atlas Weekend has already acquired a weekly scale and began to break records in the number of visitors to VDNH. And there were more than 300 thousand of them. That is how many Ukrainians came to enjoy the performances of two hundred artists.
In 2018, having earned the credibility of a top event, Atlas Weekend took over half a million people in his six days. Then the performances of Oleg Vinnik, LP and The Chemical Brothers made an absolute splash.
Last year's Atlas Weekend turned out to be such a popular event that it even received from critics the title of the best festival in Eastern Europe. Hundreds of thousands of people lined up in front of the entrance, wanting to get to the performance of their favourite artists of the world scale: The Chainsmokers, Liam Gallagher, Black Eyed Peas and others.
What awaits us at Atlas Weekend 2021?
We can only guess about this for now, but we are completely sure that this event will not yield to previous festivals in anything. Because every year the organizers do not rush to take profits first, but draw conclusions and make decisions on how to do everything better, scaled, more comfortable, more enchanting the next time.
