Why Baikal?

Baikal is a place to which we relate with deep respect and trembling. Olkhon Island is a sacred place in which you feel in a special way.
This is a place where humanity and honesty before oneself are especially appreciated. This is the place for a deep "reboot". Our festival is a space in which a person can discard the patterns of familiar life, just simply be himself without "mask". Just enjoy nature, the creative process and honest communication with others.
