The most noteworthy market of the year takes new compelling appearance: internet-shop Trends Brands for Friends is opening a genuine department store with fitting rooms and cashiers. Clothes, footwear, books, charming bric-a-brac and assortment of trinkets can be found in one of the numerous Market showrooms. This year Market is expanding – another major addition is a special fashion street featuring boutiques of well-known and the most sought-after brands.
This year Afisha Picnic hosts three music stages and first-rate list of the must-see acts. Contemporary hip-hop, soul and funk heroes led by Mos Def and Lauryn Hill, young and stylish The Drums, Fuck Buttons, NRKTK and Motorama. Line-up of the main stage is too set to take one's breath away with the live shows from exclusively the music vanguards: Franz Ferdinand, Mika, Aquarium, Little Boots and Pet Shop Boys.
Fantastic selection of the various activities that are at the core of a really successful and engaging Picnic: swimming pool, badminton, ping-pong, sky kites, lectures and workshops, beach volleyball, kicker, Angry Birds offline – and countless other summer amusements.
Impressive assortment of gastronomic delights from across the world all in one place: farmer burgers and grilled meat, fruit smoothies and milk shakes, Asian noodles and sushi, burrito and Panini, fresh bakery and Vietnamese fast-food. Dozens of participants and three special food areas this year.
