So, there we have it. But there is one important thing to note here and it’s that KaZantip is not only about the acts that play at the event. Though music and dance are treated with honour in the Republic, they are not the only kind of art. Kazantip aims to achieve world supremacy through peaceful means by bringing together the brightest and most creative and interesting people from all over the world.

So what is the Kazantip Republic? Well, the first thing the KaZantip president will tell you is that it’s NOT a festival.  It is often described as a non-existent state somewhere under the sun, which may remind onlookers of a festival. It exists in a parallel reality according to it’s own PreZident’s ideas: “summer all year round” and “life with no pants”. It lives by its own constitution; it has its own great nation, small president and lovable government, responsible for the most important things in the state, such as sound and light, love and good humour, virtual deeds and illusions. There is also a visa regime, a bureau of customs, national traditions and the official religion – belief in the reality of miracles.

The sun is shining, the sea is swinging, the music is singing on every side and the wind is always blowing strong enough for the Republic’s national sport of Kitesurfing. This small land of the rising fun is home to adventurous, bronzed fun-seekers unwilling to wave goodbye to their childhood. With over 4 weeks of electronic music, stunning art projects, kitesurfing, film projects and parties by the sea, it’s likely to be something that you have never experienced before. It is a space where people can totally express themselves: DJs, musicians, producers, film makers, designers, performers, freaks, beautiful dancing girls and toned kitesurfing boys

Each and every year hundreds of world-class electronic music artists descend upon the KaZantip Republic. See what they have to say about the event in Kazantip Chronicles series:

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. To register for your KaZantip visa and become part of the Republic this year visit And for more info on what to expect visit the official Kazantip website
