Over 500 Artists to Perform at GEM Fest 2017 in Georgia

GEM Fest is a month-long electronic music festival in Georgia, which will be held for the third time from July 14 to August 14 in Georgia’s Black Sea town Anaklia.

Blazing a new trail within sight of the Black Sea, some of the world's biggest house, techno and trance DJs make this a stand-out summer party.

This year GEM Fest looks determined to kick-start Georgia's summer dance culture, which keeps going from strength to strength.

The festival takes place right on the beach of Anaklia and the village of Ganmukhuri, situated across the river and connected to Anaklia through one of the longest pedestrian bridges in Europe.

The festival events are held on the beach, in the natural subtropical environment framed by conceptual and modern architecture.

During the festival days this 18 hectare area will turn into the world's most joyful, happy and vibrant place. The infrastructure includes five stages, dozens of catering spots, tent megalopolis GEM City, which can accommodate 10,000 people, and plenty of art installations which will be built by the GEM Team this summer.

Anaklia is just in a 25 minute drive from Zugdidi, which can be accessed easily from Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi and other Georgian towns by car, taxi, and train.

Moreover, from 9 August to 13 August, very comfortable GEM Fest Party Buses will take people to Anaklia from Tbilisi, Batumi and Kutaisi.

Also, there are daytime trains from Tbilisi to Zugdidi or high-speed daytime and night trains from Kutaisi – Zugdidi. Traveling to Tbilisi is also possible from Baku and Yerevan.

Currently, 15% of the Festival lineup has been announced, with more names to be revealed soon. More than 500 artists are expected to perform on 8 stages.

Besides non-stop music, more than 100 fun, sports, and entertainment activities will fill up the program.
