Russian rapper Lil Kate (Yekaterina Tkachenko) praised Crimea for being a perfect festival location.
“There should be more festivals like this,” she said. “We would be happy to perform every week. Crimea is a perfect location. The jazz festival created such a crazy buzz in Koktebel. This place is just as awesome for rap music.”
Rap Koktebel is Crimea’s first rap culture and music festival, launched by Rossiya Segodnya Director General Dmitry Kiselev. This year, the event will be held in Koktebel for the second time.
