The International Festival of World Music and Crafts "World of Siberia" is the most prestigious open-air event in Siberia that takes place in Shushenskoye, the Krasnoyarsk region. It is a marathon of live folk music, a place of unprecedented musical, ethnic and cultural pilgrimage that attracts thousands of guests and participants. For three days about 35,000 visitors from all over the world annually gather at the festival in the atmosphere of ethnic traditions and diversity of cultures.
The first festival held in 2003 captivated the audience. The festival tells a fascinating story about the beauty and endless creative potential of Siberia in the universal languages of music, dance and crafts. Today at the festival musicians who preserve and maintain national cultural traditions have an opportunity to freely express themselves worldwide.
Throughout the year our team looks for the most outstanding participants to design a bright and varied concert program, manages a selection of nominees for the "MIRA" World Music Competition and "MIRA" Crafts Competition, and plans something new in order to surprise you every time you visit our festival!
We have no doubt that after visiting the World of Siberia Festival, you will remain impressed and inspired for a long time. We believe it is a place where you want to come back!
