“Heat Batumi 2015” is a special Batumi summer season project which covers a two-month schedule of various festivals and entertainment events in a non-stop fashion.
From July 6th to September 15th, each week Batumi will pay host to various kinds of events, which will be communicated under an umbrella brand of “Heat Batumi”.
The Batumi City Hall and City Council are the executors of the project, along with the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia, “The Investment Fund for Culture Development”, National Administration for Tourism and the Adjara Tourism Department. This is a government project that has the goal of promoting Adjara’s tourism potential on one hand and the entire country as a whole to inner and outer target audiences on the other.
The project opened on July 6th with its week-long Georgian folk art celebration, hosting various ensembles and vocal and dancing groups on Batumi’s open stage and the Batumi Summer Theater. The traditional-oriented week will be followed by contemporary singers and artists like Sopho Khalvashi and the Black Sea Band starting July 13th, along with interesting projects like the opening of “Street Piano.”
The 60 days of Heat Batumi will cover over 200 events hosting 259 foreign artists from over 20 countries. With up to 2000 participants overall, Heat Batumi will be split into 11 thematic weeks, with each and every one of them having a unique topic and artistic accent. Heat Batumi is suitable for people of all ages and allows visitors to plan their vacation based on what they wish to see most. There’s fun going down all day-round.
