Urvakan, an Armenian festival which debuted earlier this year, has announced its full cast of curators for its second edition.
The Armenian festival returns in May with curators including Club Chai, GOST ZVUK and more.
Booking agent Brandon Rosenbluth of Little Big, Oakland-based event series and label Club Chai, music technology-focused festival Synthposium and Morphine Records head Rabih Beaini will head the music program. They’ll be joined by Moscow-based groups including experimental music events promoter TKANI and labels GOST ZVUK and Klammklang. On the visual side, muralist and graphic designer STFNV will curate street art, and syg.ma will curate art exhibitions.
For its second edition, Urvakan will take place from May 5-9, 2020, expanding from three days to five. The Yerevan-based festival, which takes its name from the Armenian word for “ghost”, turns formerly abandoned sites into unconventional venues for its variety of music performances, art installations and exhibitions. This year, the opening day event will return to the Yerevan Children’s Railway and Mirzoyan Library, while the main programme will be hosted in a new venue, an “abandoned scientific institute” in the suburbs.
Aside from music, the festival’s street art program will be curated by STFNV. Art exhibitions are to be organized by syg.ma.
