Stihia is a non-profit electronic music, arts and science festival hosted in one of the most distant places on the Earth.
The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth-largest saline lake. Over recent decades, man-made diversions have caused it to shrink to a mere shadow of its former size and created the most acute environmental problem in the Central Asian region.
The mission of the festival is to raise global awareness about this damage and help the region.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the event was moved from September 2020, to second half of May 2021.
