WHAT IS URVAKAN
URVAKAN is an international festival of contemporary culture. The word ‘Urvakan’ in Armenian means ghost, phantom, or spirit. The inspiration behind the name lies in the festival organizers’ interest in revitalizing the country’s abandoned and deserted sites. URVAKAN festival’s music program features ongoing projects by more than 80 artists from 22 countries, highlighting current trends in sonic arts, contemporary electronic, instrumental, avant pop, and club music.
The festival’s program has been carefully hand-picked by the talented people behind Synthposium, Klammklang, HAYP Pop Up Gallery, Mirzoyan Library, Rabitza, Radio Morpheus, Kond Gallery, Richterfest, and other established independent cultural initiatives.
