Ethno festival "Nebo i Zemlya"

June 9, 2018 / Festival

What is ethno festival “Nebo i Zemlya” (eng. the sky and the earth)? Officially it is “Russian culture-developing outdoor festival which takes place on 42 km from Tyumen City”. But in fact these words represent absolutely nothing from those blast of feelings, those celebration of life, which happens every June in quiet Siberian suburb.

For me for the fourth year now ethno festival is a 5 days long life, full of magic people and their smiles, endless flow of music and dance, scorching sun and rainy hurricanes. But believe me – it’s worth it. It always does!

For 11 years “Nebo and Zemlya” has made the journey from being a small event in House of Culture to the largest festival in Ural region. For the first time I got to the festival in 2015. That was love at first sight, sound and scent. Everything is somehow different there: easy to breath, easy to dance.

I remember how hard it was to come back to city life with all its routine, rude people and lack of colors. By the way, that is still happening. And not only with me.

But after first festival I’ve definitely decided that I want to be a part of this unique and light phenomenon. Just because I can’t not stay apart of it – ethno festival catches you, touches the deepest strings of the soul, makes you feel that you are not alone.

Recruitment of volunteers usually starts at February-March. Organizers provide free transportation from Tyumen to ecopolis and free entrance to the festival with possibility to attend all of the concerts and master classes.

Partly preferential vegetarian meal and a choice of volunteering vacancies for any taste are also provided:

  • If you love children – you can become a helper on a child playground: lying in hay, distracting and entertaining children while their parents are looking for spiritual enlightenment or learning new craft;
  • Do you have a car and like driving on highway from Tyumen to Pesyanka (why not?)? Then you can become an auto volunteer and help with transportation of highly valuable goods. Such as musicians and their instruments, for example;
  • If you have a golden hands, you can be a builder volunteer, if you draw – you can become a designer. There are a lot of different platforms: information center, first-aid post, fair, checkpoint etc. But I've always had one main passion in my life – music. That is why my choice was obvious – “Work with artists”.

Work of artist’s volunteer includes full caring about “your” artists. You should get acquainted with every member of group in 2 months before the festival, know their rider and provide everything they need. The next task is to meet the group on a train station/airport/any other place on the planet and drive them to ecopolis safe and sound. Then you should show the territory and make sure they are settled and fed.

You should always know the answer on every question, control the sound check and the performance itself. But this is all just words again. In reality you become guides and best friends with visiting artists for the festival time. You will be talking about everything, laughing out loud and taking photos while sitting in the tea house's twilight. You will cheer them up before the performance and then getting a charge of their incredible energy and talent from the stage in return. You will have no pity to share the last sip of hot water from the thermos even it's only 8 degrees Celsius outside. Definitely you will be really sad when the time to say goodbye will come. And more than definitely you will try to save this connection a month and a year later. Because the ethno festival is about People with a capital letter, about kindness and love.

I have never seen the unity of souls like that anywhere else. As well as the concentration of creatively gifted wizards and enchantress. But be careful! "Nebo i Zemlya" is addictive! This giant explosion of emotions doesn't pass without trace - you are hooking on it like on the sweetest drug. Everyday life doesn't satisfy your emotional requirements anymore and you need a new dose - dose of this unexplained and overwhelming festival happiness.
