Hot and sunny Armenia becomes epicenter of the coolest activities of summer .
I am so excited of all these events that can’t even choose which one to attend 🙂 But this weekend there is one, which I won’t miss for sure . This weekend within the village of Getamej there will be a festival that quickens armenian cultural life, adds new notes to modern armenian music culture. This Fest is a nice initiative and I am happy that it’s becoming a good tradition. The name of the fest is also quite unique :River Fest !
River Fest Armenia promises to be an unforgettable and indescribably interesting .
Here are some photos of last year fest, which already describe the mood of the event and motivate to be part of it.
Getamej is a town in the Kotayk Marz in Armenia, “Getamej” translates roughly to English a “Mid-River” . This small and modest town will be full of fantastic rhythms and melodies this weekend. Town itself is a nice place to visit, there is a river , beautiful armenian houses with very hospitable people, good nature , kind of peaceful and lovely place .
Proceeds of the fest will go towards the renovation of the school in Gedamej!
