The organizers of this festival in the village – a museum of modern art in the open air have changed the theme according to the circumstances. The topic “Happiness” was replaced by the question: “Is there happiness?” There will be a big collective performance about it: the organizers promise that “artists, performers and musicians will present a mystery-journey about how to survive a dark night to meet the dawn together.”

Visitors will also be amazed by the 29-meter tower made of materials from wood to plastic and broken glass, special “sleepy” art events from the “most boring lecturer” and “choir of yawning people”, kinetic toys for adults and a large mud pit to lie in. , like a child (shower included).
