Vilnius, the capital
of Lithuania, raved together with
Ukraine in celebration of the
country’s Independence Day. A techno
music event next to Vilnius’ White
Bridge was led by world-famous
Ukrainian DJs ARTBATc featured guest
performers DJs Miss Monique and
8kays and drew thousands of people.
The crowd danced for freedom and
demonstrated in an unconventional
way that no one can defeat the
strong spirit of Ukraine and take
away its independence.
Music and raves as forms of
Ukraine’s resistance and national
unity is a powerful concept within
the context of Russia’s invasion.
Since the outbreak of the conflict,
nightclubs in Kyiv have been
converted to warehouses, while those
working in the music scene have
taken on logistical roles by
distributing hundreds of tonnes of
aid. Ravers and DJs take part in
“clean up raves” across the country
to help clean and restore buildings
destroyed by the fighting.
