“Ferma” is initiated by a bunch of friends, aiming at bringing together the right-on audience for the most significant events and trends in contemporary culture in format of a summer country picnic. “Ferma” in its own way is a ground for exchanging ideas, friendly interaction and simple pastime. The festival is not targeted at gross audience; it was created by and for a certain circle of people presenting the intellectual and cultural layer of society.
Founders of the festival: Matvey Vershigorov (“Swan lake”, Pussycat balls DJ project), Oleg Zotkin (“Mix” club, etc) and Abdriesh Gandrabur (Rookie Crew band, etc), Sergey Sergeyev (clubs “Lutch”, “A-club”, “Mix”, “16 TONS”, “Solyanka”), Nairi Simonyan (Pompeya and Rookie Crew bands).
