Coordinator of the Rap Factory international interactive talent show Nikolai Melnikov believes the Crimean Rap Koktebel Festival has a great future.
The Rap Factory project will be represented by three residents: Yury Shipulin (Breeze), Timur Kazakov (Mikky Regas) and Alexei Mekhryakov (Sulima).
“These guys will give their best tracks with a lot of attitude. This festival is highly popular. And it's cool that it’s in Koktebel, such a great location. The festival will develop, it has a great future, especially with the upcoming infrastructure upgrades at Koktebel,” Melnikov said.
According to Melnikov, the pandemic prevented more residents from participating in the festival this year. “We could have brought in more performers, but due to the pandemic and closed borders, not everyone can come,” he explained.
The Rap Factory is an international interactive talent show where aspiring performers show their hip-hop skills. The format provides an opportunity for anyone to contact the organizers, access the shoot and the show themselves.
