Tbilisi Open Air to Host International Musicians

The world’s leading music stars continue to hold concerts in Georgia. Following on from the exciting line-up presented by the State’s ‘Check in Georgia’ program, AlterVision Company presented their guests – Damien Rice, Morchebeba, Unkle, Air, Steve Vai and other international and local artists- who will perform as part of the annual Tbilisi Open Air festival on July 29-31.

One of the biggest music festivals in the region, Tbilisi Open Air will host 40 musicians from 12 countries in a three-day event near Lisi Lake, where organizers aim to create a new music city with three stages and full infrastructure for listeners to be able to “touch” the music and feel free throughout the festivals.

For eight years Tbilisi Open Air has been annually offering music for every taste. Acoustics, Electronic, Alternative, Rock and Indie Rock have been heard numerous times from the stages of the festival, and this year for the first time Hip-Hop musicians will be joining the mixed line-up- performing in different genres including Drum and Bass, Funk, Abstract Electronic and numerous Jam sessions.

“We represent the largest festival of its kind in the region, so we always try to meet the needs of listeners with varied musical tastes. Moreover, not only local listeners visit our festival, but also visitors from other countries, many of whom come specifically for Tbilisi Open Air,” said organizer Archil Guledani.

Despite the rise in popularity of the festival, the organizers announced that prices this year will actually start out lower than usual. One day attendance will cost 35 GEL and a three-day pass – 80 GEL. From May 16, the prices will increase: one day – 50 GEL and a pass – 120 GEL. Tickets are available from April 14 on the festival website www.tbilisiopenair.ge and at the box office next to the Sports Palace.
