KAZANTIP REPUBLIC OPENING PARTY + FINAL LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT Just over one week to go until the 2010 Kazantip Republic Opening Party and we can now announce that even more of the world’s finest electronic artists have been confirmed to play on the beautiful Crimean Black Sea coast from 31st July to 28th August.

The event, which takes place in over 40 venues across Crimea will play host to acts including:
Carl Cox, Ricardo Villalobos, M.A.N.D.Y, Josh Wink, Stanton Warriors, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Hybrid, Joel Mull, Meat Katie, Guy Gerber, Oliver Huntemann, Seth Troxler, Agoria, Dyed Soundorom, Extrawelt,Serge Devant, Pedro, Raresh, Rhadoo, Fergie, Kollectiv Turmstrasse, Sanches, Freestylers, The Beatthiefs, Joachim, KiNK, Matthias Mayer, Sapunov, Zorkin, & more. There will also be a whole host of special events by: Get Physical, Poker Flat, Desolat, Cocoon, r: pia: r, Global Underground, Toolroom, Ideal, Supplement Facts, Freak’n Chik and many more.

Kazantip’s New Year will open with performances from many of the region’s leading electronic artists including Mike Spirit (Moscow), Arkadiy Air (Moscow), Rayo (Moscow), Burzhui (Kiev) and Roman Gertz (Kiev). In addition to celebrating local and regional talent, DJs and producers from across the globe will gather in Crimea for the 18th edition of Kazantip.

Kazantip is the biggest, longest, craziest, liveliest and most unusual electronic music event, which takes place on the Crimean Black Sea coast from 31st July to 21st August 2010. With 6 dancefloors, 30 bars and restaurants, 2 open air crimea halls, 3 kite stations and a huge number of various architectural constructions which you can’t even imagine, Kazantip is an undiscovered party paradise.

The festival has been going strong for 18 years and is a space where people can totally express themselves: DJs, musicians, producers, film makers, designers, performers, freaks, beautiful dancing girls and toned kitesurfing boys. Having been compared to Ibiza and Burning Man, Kazantip has a wide range of parties 24/7, art projects, and a community of crazy people set against the mind blowing back drop of a technicolour light show – it looks like a giant space ship at night.
But why Republic? Of course Kazantip is a mythical republic, which does not exist but it is independent and sovereign. It has its own basic laws, President, Government and citizens – creative freaky people who are tired of normal ordinary life.
And you may have never heard about this imaginary Republic until now, but Sven Vath, Dubfire, Timo Maas, Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Crystal Method, LTJ Bukem, Oliver Huntemann, Stephan Bodzin, Tigerskin, James Zabiela, Robert Babicz and hundreds more well-known artists perform at Kazantip every year.
