This is a compilation of photos from different sources about a life on a music event which takes place in Crimea, Ukraine. Thousands of young people from Russia visit this place. It’s situated on the shore of the Black sea, the most southern part of the former USSR.
And of course the place is severely protected. On this picture you can see the guards, the Ukrainian special police squad “Tigers” (this is what written on their backs with white letters). Probably it’s written there just for a bigger effect, to gain more respect for police. But who knows.
It has been said that in 2006 many of Russian visitors were unmercifully beaten, trying to earn money from them. That’s not a rare thing when policemen try to earn using their power. Both in Moscow and in other parts of Russia, you can see the related posts section down this page if have not seen before.
Most of the visitors are usualy alternatively oriented.
That’s a russian car VAZ 2110 covered with some blissful paintings.
People dance all the night, then the daytime is used for getting some sleep. It’s normal.
Most of the visitors are young people, the signature on the lady’s swimsuit is an official moto of the event, it is a modified word “Happiness”.
People live everywhere across the beach and in local villages.
This is also some sort of a house with a sign “CONDOM HOUSE” on its roof. Probably it is some bar.
Different body-art contests were being held.
Many russian girls are sunbathing and just wander around. I decided not to cut off those images just because it’s a natural part of the event, not connected with some sort of expressing sexuality etc.
I hate when the colour of teeth alters.
The music is being played non-stop, during daytime and at night. The graffiti on the wall is of the sad anti-semitic content, meaning “Jews go away from the Internet”, I hope they erased it pretty soon after it was made. It’s sad people don’t understand that all the people are of one origin.
That’s a view of a beach.
This guy’s pose probably expresses something, as I told the photos are from different private sources so only the witnesses could explain us what he wanted to say.
People sleep right on the beach.
All the interesting things happen at night. A lot of dance grounds, different styles of electronic music, audio and visual effects.
Some other Russian girls sunbathing during the daytime.
It’s no secret that a lot of young people visiting such events are using some drugs. It’s not of course allowed by the authorities but the curiosity always wins, though you know that curiosity killed a cat.
Also it’s clearly seen here that American dollars are used all over the Russia.
Some other russian guys and russian girls during a daytime.
This is some kind of procession.
People are living in local villages, the sign on the door is “Free rooms available”.
Again some weed.
And its users.
In Russia weed is usualy being smoked with the help of filterless cigarettes “Belomorkanal”, which can be easily emptied from the tobacco and some grass is being put inside them afterwards. That’s what are they doing on the photo.
The guy is showing a paper with a stamped image “Afterparty is persmissed”.
Some more Russian girls
and more girls
and even more.
This kid is probably 6 or 7 years old…
And this guy from the left is probably in his late 40s..
And even more girls.
Some structures are being built each year to make the even different.
Art is everywhere.
Again that “Condom house” it is definitely some kind of a bar.
The sign is given a direction to a “Sex’o'drome”, what’s that?
“Ibiza sucks, Kazantip rules” something like that.
Such events like these is a pretty young thing for Russia. For 70 years rock, alternative and electronic music was banned by the goverment. People could not meet and play or listen the music they like. After so many years of being deprived people try to catch up and copy the events from the famous parties of USA or Europe.
