ABR fest on the go

The sixth Afro Banana Republic Festival is in the full swing of its preparations for its festival due on August 19 and 20 and has officially announced the start of ticket sales.

“It’s fast approaching that time of the summer when surrealism and discovery go hand-in-hand, as spectacular musical inspiration meets artistic intervention in the most otherworldly fashion.

Now coming to life for the sixth consecutive year, one of the most highly-anticipated annual events returns, stronger than ever, set to totally transform Kornos forest into an energetic hub of otherworldly creativity,” says an announcement on the event.

“Taking place over the weekend of August 19-20, the Afro Banana Republic (ABR) Festival will see high-calibre international bands and DJs arrive on the island to play alongside a handpicked selection of the island’s finest musicians, as an explosive kaleidoscope of sounds combines with dreamy aesthetics and rousing creative performances,” it adds.

Having earned international recognition as one of Europe’s finest festivals, honoured last year with the EFFE Label 2015-2016, ABR continues its collaboration with the Bank of Cyprus as long term partners in innovation.

With four different music stages, festival-goers will have the chance to immerse themselves in varied environments, buzzing with captivating beats and rhythms from far-flung corners of the world.

“All this will be accentuated with inspiring creative projects and interactive experiences set to whisk everyone away into an action-packed world light years away from daily reality,” it concludes.

Announcements on all live acts and other exciting happenings of the festival will be released throughout the course of the month.
