It is still incomprehensible that Russia under the Putin regime launched a war of conquest in 2022 unless Ukraine cedes its own identity and parts of the country. Everything should become Russian, everything should serve the imperialist purpose. But there are many brave people who counteract these goals. Whether fighters on the front lines or every single person who sees Ukraine as an independent country and speaks it so openly. With "the bRAVEs - Techno for Ukraine" we want to honor all the brave people and invite you to be a part of it. Let's come together, exchange energies to continue to be brave! All profit goes to the “UNITED24” initiative.
Event will start directly after the concerts of Constantine and Ingret from UA at the same venue. There are also tickets available for both events: PLANET*HOPE x the bRAVEs.
the bRAVEs on August 20th:
