It is announced that during the five days of the festival it will be possible to see the entire future of Kaunas city. “Audra”, which is the name of Contemporary City Festival, will speak loudly and confidently about the dramas experienced by young culture and young people in the city.
Concerts and parties in Kaunas spaces will become the axis of the festival.
