The construction of the stage and lighting for the 26th edition of Slavianski Bazaar has begun in Vitebsk, Belarus.
With Slavianski Bazaar 2017 just a few days away, construction of the stage and lighting for this years competition is well underway in Belarus. Work at the venue began this week, with Moscow based Remtal beginning work at the Summer Amphitheater. Work at the venue will continue until the end of this week, after which point the first events and the Children’s Competition will be held.
The Summer Ampitheater has been the venue for Slavianski Bazaar and its competitions since the first edition in 1992. Originally constructed in 1988 to host the Polish Song Festival in Vibetsk, it was only used twice for the competition in 1988 and 1990 before being abandoned following the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 1992 the venue was renovated and is now capable of holding 5,000 people.
