GAMMA festival is a large-scale avant-garde event will take place at St. Petersburg between July 19th and 22nd. In 2017 it established itself as one of the most exciting Russian music festivals, and this year has grown in scale, with 85 modern musicians and artists from 15 countries coming to St. Petersburg to participate in one of the top music, art and new urban festivals in Russia.

GAMMA takes place in a number of great locations including the Stepan Razin Brewery, the first Russian brewery founded in 1795, which will be the main venue for the festival and the object of transformation. To date, a part of the factory is protected as an industrial monument and is no longer operational. It is here that festival stages will be located, along with a large-scale exhibition of media installations, street art, art and science objects and sound art installations created by artists as part of the Artification project.

Artification is an international experimental platform aimed to support and develop various facets of contemporary art and new talents. The purpose of the project is to initiate interaction between beginners and experienced artists, support the most recent trends in contemporary art and create conditions for creative international collaboration. This platform offers you an opportunity to submit your project and get support from the community, curators and organizers of "Artification". The best works are presented annually at Gamma festival of music, art and new urban culture.
