The Sixth Street Food Festival will turn into a professional platform for creating new formats of street food.

Young and active people will meet, and in a joint effort, create new delights. Everyone can both try something tasty, and participate in the event of culinary art. These festivals are places where people meet and successful ideas emerge.

Tori Amos

Zhovtneviy Palats

(1, vul. Instytutska, Kyiv)

American singer Tori Amos will be coming to Ukraine to present her new album, Unrepentant Geraldines. The pianist’s new record was inspired by her numerous projects, particularly The Light Princess musical and Gold Dust, a collection of songs rearranged in an orchestral setting, which was released on the 20th anniversary of her music career. The artist is called the architect of sound, as she masterfully combines different music styles in her work. Every performance by the pianist is the unbelievable sound of piano-rock, blues and jazz.
