Cultural program: Where to go in Kiev in August

Spread the love


August is like Sunday evening. Behind were hot air-conditioned everyday life and strawberry season, and only the best was ahead: sunsets on the beach, measured cool evenings, a city without people. Solid romance. The whole world seems to slow down when the calendar shows the first of August.

But August this year is not at all like the “dead month” as it is commonly believed. In the last summer month, endless parties, concerts for every taste, ecological movement and evenings on the beach are waiting for us. A good plan to complete the summer.

Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 New album out October 18. Get heavy with “Black Bull” now. Link in Story. Nab the signed deluxe vinyl boxset in the Shop at or click the link in Bio. More goodies coming soon

British indie rockers come to Kiev for the second time. After a long tour, the group releases 2 albums at once: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost was released in March, and the musicians will present the second part in the fall. In Kiev, they will play their new songs and best hits.

The album is inspired by global issues: Brexit, global warming, terrorism, discrimination. “Open the newspapers: homophobia, racism, killing of innocent people. Many good people are annoyed because they don’t know how to stop this. We believe that these 2 albums are a kind of therapy against injustice,” Foals said. Therapy certainly will not hurt us.

Dedicated to all dystopian fans – The Podil Theater puts on a scandalous play by Michael Gene Sullivan based on the equally scandalous novel by George Orwell. Its plot was realized not only in the Soviet Union, but also in modern times (think: data leaks on Facebook, Cambridge Analytics, Google ads that seem to eavesdrop on your conversations). Big Brother is watching us – and not just from the stage.

When: from August 21
