The festival will take place on May 27th and 28th, where Kalush orchestra will have their first performance after the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Ukrainian KALUSH Orchestra conquered the world with a recent victory in the Eurovision final with the song “Stefania“, which Oleh Psiuk, rapper and frontman of the band, dedicated to his mother.
