Tashkent again hosted the rock festival IlkhomRockFest. For 6 years, the festival continues to be the only place in Uzbekistan, where the musicians are free to express their wildest creative ideas, to create multimedia shows, combining music, theater, light, video and dance.
February 8 show “New Universe” was performed by young Uzbek indie-rock band “Double You”.
With this concert we wanted to give our answers to the questions “What fascinates us in starry sky? Who we are in this infinite silence of these spaces?”. Each of us is part of the universe, but a reflection of the universe – it is our feelings. All of us – a reflection of each other – told us Double You guitar player Arsen Kurtametov.
We present the photo report from this show. If you want to listen songs and watch videos of «Double You», please, use this links:
