The second edition of the Anaklia festival goes down from August 10th through 14th.
GEM Fest—short for Georgian Electronic Music Festival—launched last year. For 2016, it's returning to Anaklia, a resort town in western Georgia on the Black Sea. The action will go down across a number of stages and arenas from August 10th through 14th, with DJs pushing house, techno, minimal and EDM all locked in.
There'll be sets from minimalists such as Fumiya Tanaka, Onur Özer, Binh, Petre Inspirescu, Barac and Dasha Redkina, plus more big-room names like Paul Kalkbrenner, tINI, Stephan Bodzin and Super Flu. GusGus and dOP will play live, while a long list of residents includes Georgian acts Bacho, Cobert, George Effe and Lasha Guruli, plus Azerbaijan's Cestlek. More artists will be added in the coming months.
