Faine Misto Festival Featured in
Faine Misto is an annual rock music festival, held in Ternopil over five days in late July. This great outdoor festival runs under a logo saying "the territory of free people." Since its first edition in 2013, the event has changed several locations, from Chaika island in Taras Shevchenko Park to Ternopil International Airport and finally, Ternopilskyy Ipodrom in Dovzhanka, 12 miles (19 km) east of Downtown Ternopil. The current venue boasts a large green area with a lake and numerous trees.
Faine Misto in Ukrainian means "a fine city." The festival was named after a famous song "Faine misto Ternopil" by the local band Gadiukiny Brothers, which largely shaped Ukrainian rock. As for the lineups, the majority are local musicians, but international performers, like The Rasmus or Poets of the Fall, have also made an appearance on Faine Misto's stage.
The 2022 edition was about to introduce some great changes to Faine Misto festival, namely paid camping in addition to the free one. The organizers planned to divide the large area into streets, passages, and quarters. Other innovations included a new lounge zone, a bar, and amenities, such as water tanks, extra wash basins, toilets, and more. But due to the ongoing war, the festival is on hiatus.
