In the near future, an electronic music festival GEM Fest may be held in Baku or the Caspian Sea coast. George Sigua, a founder of the festival organizer company Epic Stone, told CBW. He says that the negotiations are underway with Azerbaijani colleagues on this issue.
In Sigua’s words, the company continues to work in this direction. “In November we are going to have a very amazing event in Tbilisi. In December, Winter Gem Fest will be held in one of the ski resorts. A variety of exciting events are also planned during the year. In the summer of 2016, a grand Gem Fest will be held in Anaklia again, which will be even more crowded and more representative in terms of Line up. The main Gem Fest event will be always held in Anaklia”, Sigua notes.
In his opinion, Anaklia hoste the festival worthily. He notes that there have been no serious irregularities during the festival. “The only drawback was the problem with accommodation. Many houses are still not ready to receive tourists. However, the problem will be gradually solved”, the organizer of the festival believes.
The Georgian brand creation, in George Sigua’s words, was the main success of the festival, which, has international reputations for its high quality . “Money raised from the sale of tickets was transferred to the Solidarity Fund. We will sponsor the talented young people to study abroad. We are engaged in creation of the film about our festival. In September, I will go to Ukraine to get a prize for making the best summer festival. I will have to travel to Ibiza in order to also receive special prizes. The whole world knew about us. I am sure that next year GemFest audience will dramatically increase, including foreigners”, Sigua adds.
