"Grand is always an opportunity to reach another higher quality level. Because the project itself is not new. The festival is being held for the fourth time. The first festival was chamber in its own way, one-day. This year, thanks to the fact that we won a Presidential grant from the Cultural Initiatives Foundation on the second attempt, we scaled the event both in a temporary and territorial sense. This festival will last for the first time three days. A larger-scale program, and most importantly - democratic ticket prices," said one of the organizers of the festival Sergey Matlin.

"The powder magazine [No. 13 of the Vladivostok Fortress] is a little-known place for Vladivostok residents. And this is an important part of history, because people need to know their city. "Musical Picnic" is a great opportunity to explore a historical place. The festival is an event for the world. And the objects created for war should become objects for peace," the agency interlocutor said.

The festival will be complemented by a large-scale program, including lectures from the Tretyakov Gallery, master classes for children on historical and artistic subjects, as well as excursions to the Powder Cellar No. 13. The festival will last until August 21 inclusive.
