Friendship at the festival "Kino. SOLSTICE 2018"
Last weekend in the Novgorod region occurred a large-scale music festival "Kino. Solstice 2018". Convenient location between Moscow and St. Petersburg made it available to residents of the two capitals and joined friends at the airport Antalia. Over 3 days the festival was visited by more than 34 thousand people.
This year a large-scale open-air was opened in the night of 22 to 23 June with a symbolic minute of silence dedicated to the Day of memory and grief. After came on stage the first festival headliners – group "DDT". Shevchuk began his speech with the seventh "the siege" Leningrad Symphony of Shostakovich, then sang "Dark night", and then "Blue handkerchief", thus paying tribute to the victims of the great Patriotic War. In addition to well-known and beloved hits - "You are not alone", "last autumn", "Wind", was performed and the new songs recently released album, "Gal, go."
"The festival is a good, idea excellent. Choi wonderful songs he wrote and sang, and those songs are so good that the whole country sings them – it's worth it, of course. And the fact that his birthday is celebrated at the festival – it's wonderful! And especially glad that the weather was fine. I was messing, I prayed when I saw these clouds. Sava God, everything turned out" - shared his impressions of Yuri Shevchuk.
For 23 June was filled with a huge number of much-loved hits as well as songs, which, of course, expect for being in the top. The line-up surprised the guests with its variety. Along with all known groups of Pilot, Dolphin, Alice, Kalinov most, Louna, EORSI, Clay, Dайте Tank (!), Refining, audiophiles pleased local performers Annabel, OM, Blackbird, And project. The sensation for the audience was the performance of German bands Mordorи Tanzwut, who jointly performed the song Tsoi. Concluding remarks group Tanzwut spoken from the stage, was "FRIENDSHIP," which, of course, sounds like a motto.
The second day of the festival was opened by performance of legendary group Княzz. By the way, I must say that the most important football event - the "world Cup 2018" - has not bypassed and "Kino". "DDT" and "Княzz" performed at the festival of their hymns. And Yuri Shevchuk the idea of recording a song arose spontaneously:
"I wrote it literally in about five minutes. Actually I'm not a big football fan, but I like what happened in Russia, what is this world Cup, very cool. So many weirdos who hate everything that is beyond the borders of Russia. And that's "all" we have arrived, it turned out that they came to the merry, reckless, wonderful, kind, humane people. And I think that Russia really will help you to become more fun, not to go dark on the streets. It turns out, can be simply photographed with the police, to sing songs, to share with people with laughter and joy."
All day was pleased with its performances, the group Network, Buckwheat, Narimono Theophanes, Sergey Bobunets, 25/17, Brainstormи many others. An unusual event was the speech by Leonid Agutin in the event of such format. The artist himself would be impressed by its incredibly warm reception by the public:
"When I called my Director and said that he received an offer to play at the festival "Kinoproba", explaining that the condition is the performance of one song of Tsoi, I agreed immediately. Although, frankly, it was a bit scary, after all, in front of an audience of rockers I had. Took incredibly soulful, sing along and supported – thank you all very much," - said Leonid Agutin.
The festival was closed on Sunday June 24 group b-2 and their "Event Horizon", the band was also surprised by an unexpected duet with Theophanes Necromayhem who sang "Whiskey".
