With ongoing social and political unrest in Crimea, festival organisers have moved the event to Anaklia.
This year's Kazantip festival will now take place in Anaklia, Georgia.
The festival traditionally takes place in Crimea, a formerly Ukrainian peninsula that's been the scene of political unrest since it was annexed by Russia in March. Organisers have confirmed that the festival will now take place in Anaklia, a seaside town in western Georgia, though the exact location has not yet been revealed. The festival itself maintains that it's open to anyone and everyone—a strong feeling of independence is Kazantip's central credo. The 2014 edition will now run from August 20th through 30th. (The original dates were July 31st to August 14th.)
