Let’s begin from the beginning. When we created the concept for GEM Fest, we wanted to embellish it with as many different meanings and connotations as possible, just as the rather long- winded full title of the Georgian Electronic Music Festival contains the word ‘gem’ in its name: a precious stone, hidden away in an unsuspecting cut of rock. Or, as in our case, bursting out of the rock. This burst of power and display of a beautiful and immensely valuable core lies at the heart of our festival.

GEM Fest was conceived as an international, multi-platform festival to celebrate the most illustrious, the brightest, and the best in youth culture, dance music, and stagecraft today. The supernovas and bright young stars of the global electronic scene, the most dazzling developments in modern art, and the most passionate trailblazers and trendsetters; choreographers, art directors, designers, photographers, cinematographers, DJs, video artists and even athletes — we love anything that makes you turn your head and say, ‘Brilliant!’

We want our festival to bring together not only the most lustrous and renowned pearls from all over the world, but also a handful of uncut diamonds; we want to provide a platform for the realization of unbridled artistic potential and help to uncover the priceless gem that is hidden in every artistic talent. We want to bring you all together in one place — on the cutting edge — and make you dance.

What we are doing can be summed up in just one phrase: ‘It’s an absolute gem!’ We want these to be the words which greet you as you cross the Inguri River, dazzled by the view over all Anaklia. We hope that these will be the words you use to describe what you have seen, heard, and felt here.

We would also like to say a few words about the organizing committee. For GEM Fest to bring together the most striking and outstanding talent, we needed our own team to be no less remarkable :) As a result, we have formed a professional and international team, together boasting experience on numerous major events of the likes of Kazantip and Exit Festival. We have consolidated efforts and resources to put on what will be Georgia’s biggest and most iconic festival. In fact, we’re in no way descending into bombastic exaggeration when we say that it’s an event of national importance: the festival has been put together in collaboration with the Georgian Government and the former Head of the Georgian National Tourism Administration Giorgi Sigua.
