Jul 14th – Aug 14th – 32 Days – 9 Stages – 500 Artists – 3000 Performances
GEM FEST – Georgian Electronic Music Festival is an annual international event held in an idyllic location near the small sleepy village of Anaklia, in the European nation of Georgia. It takes place at one of the biggest, cleanest and most beautiful beaches on the whole Black Sea – the latest hotspot of the European and global party scene. It is the place to experience the most incredible sunsets, dip in crystal clear water and indulge in world-renowned wines, cuisine and Georgian hospitality.
The 3rd edition of a month long, non-stop party that will offer over 3.000 performances on 9 stages is a spiritual successor of KAZANTIP, and a new meeting point of free-spirited people from all over the globe. GEM Fest is a celebration of like-minded people, arts and crafts, movies, sports, meeting new people, having fun on the beach amongst beautiful nature, and of course performances from the biggest international DJs and live acts in the world, not to mention many uncut gems that are yet to conquer the world's hottest club and festival stages.
