History:  Festival “Deti Nochi: Chorna Rada”: since 1999!

The festival “Deti Nochi: Chorna Rada” is the oldest festival of gothic/industrial scene in ex-USSR, the one, which managed to gather ultimatively big number of visitors from the beginning, in the end of 90-ties. That’s why it is labeled as “biggest gothic/dark event of ex-USSR” and “dark slavic gathering”.

History of the festival goes to 1999 when it was first originally planned and realized with around 2000 of fans visiting the event and first goth / industrial bands playing there.

In USSR “gothic” or related issues were prohibitet, so there was no scene at all. After the breakdown of Soviet Union in 1989 the gothic / industrial scene of Eastern Europe developed tremendously . In early 1999 it became possible to organize first events for some thousands of audience. Unfortunately, each national independent scene (e.g. Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Baltic States) developed isolated, but the demand grown for one common event gathering all together. Thus, in 1999-2000 the Chorna Rada 1 was made attracting attention of the whole region.

What does “Deti Nochi: Chorna Rada” mean? The first name of the festival, “Deti Nochi” is translated in english “Children of the night”. “Deti Nochi” was originally used in 1999 and identifies and talks for itself. “Chorna Rada” is translated from slavic languages as “dark gathering”, “dark council” and is famous for its historcal interpretations.

The place for festival, Kiev-city is also a rightest choice, because Kiev is historically acknowledged as “cradle” of such slavic nations as ukrainians, russians or belorussians.

Nowadays, “Chorna Rada: children of the night” is established the central slavic gothic / dark / electro event, that presents annualy the best bands from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and rest of Eastern Europe in Kiev. The place to come for lovers of gothic, industrial, cyber and dark romance from different neighboring countries of region, who visit the festival.
