When it comes to what other, relatively more normal people think of our imaginary world, it’s a big international annual club culture festival held in summer at the Black Sea coast of Crimea, Ukraine (Russia’s neighboring, ex-USSR country).

The event features hundreds of best DJs, dancers, musicians, performers and other creative minds from around the world.

A little mad. Perhaps, as mad as hatter ;]
