Official V-ROX festival 2015 Movie (http://www.vrox.org
) which had its premier on Dec 20th 2015 on MTV Russia TV channel is now available online.
The main festival of the Free-port of Vladivostok was held on August 28-30th 2015 at the Sportivnaya Embankment. V-ROX is a big international music festival and creative conference. This year was 3rd in V-ROX history. The founder and creator of this festival is none other but Ilya Lagutenko from “Mumiy Troll” band. In 2015 more than 300 bands, musicians, djs and other representatives of the music industry from 14 countries participated in V-ROX.
Ilya Lagutenko comments: "The greatest result of the festival over the past three years was the fact that I, as a festival organizer, could demonstrate that real music discoveries need not be limited to musicians and entertainment industry professionals. Our efforts have been rewarded with the attention of the general public. We managed to finally break a lot of prejudices. We were able to not only show the real state of the global independent music scene to people of Vladivostok; we began to find real like-minded people as well. Namely - young people, who think in terms of the future in the world of openness and cooperation, instead of worrying about immediate benefits and who do not drool over the fact that "rock and roll is dead," and "there is no path for the young." We started to make history together ."
MTV Russia TV channel is a partner of the V-ROX festival.
Jana Churikova (director of MTV Russia) says: "I strongly support music decentralization. Life cannot happen only in the European part of Russia. V-ROX is a perfect example of a significant cultural event that is very far from the "center". Through this festival, Vladivostok is strengthening its status of a city - a leader of the youth culture in our country. And MTV is glad to be with V-ROX! »
The film about V-ROX 2015 was filmed for MTV by a young and ambitious Vladivostok production studio "Sad Woodpecker." Peter Starostin, the director of V-ROX 2015 said: "For me and our team, us working at this festival has become the ultimate experience. We were fortunate to be in the thick of events, meeting and talking with incredibly talented people from all over the world, different cultures, style and energy. Our work was also to introduce these people to an audience of millions, and of course - to convey the very special atmosphere of the festival and the whole city of Vladivostok. Of course, it was a very difficult task, but if we have opportunity again to try something like this, we will say yes, yes and yes ".
The next V-ROX festival will be held in Vladivostok on 19-21 August 2016. Plan ahead for a visit to the free port of Vladivostok on these dates, and look for yourself in the TV version on MTV Russia. WE V-ROX YOU!
