«It’s a daytime but full-fledged Strichka — a celebration of being and a cross-section of contemporary electronic dance music in the context of Ukrainian realities, peculiarities of the local scene and factory architecture. Now the realities have changed, so we feel an even greater need for this event, because in addition to the obvious cultural value it says: dance is life», the festival team comments on the announcement.

It is scheduled to begin on May 20 at 11:00 a.m.. A detailed schedule, stories about the artists and venues of the festival will be published closer to the event.
