The Big Art Festival has a unique atmosphere and an unforgettable shows that your audience talks about for a long time afterward. Every concert is always well sold out. How do you explain the success of all Big Art Festival events?
Thank you very much for the question. It really is. Our success is a symbiosis of several factors combined. It’s a working “mechanism” that can’t be copied and replicated.
First of all, it’s the artists. We have been working with the world’s biggest stars for over 20 years. Our friendships with artists in different genres allow us to organize unique concerts and shows for our guests worldwide. Each concert organized by us is always unique and unforgettable.
Secondly, we only hold our Big Art Festival in top venues in Monaco, Capri, Dubai, Marmaris, Courchevel, Istanbul, Saint-Tropez, Marbella, London, Cyprus, Porto Cervo, Forte dei Marmi, Mykonos and Budva. Yacht Club in Monaco, Billionaire in Porto Cervo, Royal Atlantis, and The Theater in Dubai are just a few of the venues we work with.
Third, there’s the atmosphere. Red carpet, exquisite décor, camera flashes, diamonds on the ladies, special dress code, champagne, world popular stars and celebrities, gourmet dinner from leading chefs – all this adds a special charm to our Big Art Festival and the atmosphere of festivity and art. The philosophy of BIG ART FESTIVAL is our passion for creating a unique atmosphere and an unforgettable extraordinary time, having the audience talk about it for years to come.
Each Big Art Festival becomes a true event for selected VIP guests in the best places and locations in the world. It is a kind of “closed club” of selected guests from all over the world. How do you ensure that your regular guests plan their travel schedule to attend your events?
Yes, indeed, our Big Art Festival is a kind of “closed” club. Our VIP guests of the highest level gather from all over the world, which means that this is a unique opportunity to communicate with each other and discuss not only the artist’s work but also talk about a possible future partnership.
Our light party atmosphere involves acquaintances between guests, communication, and further friendship. And it’s worth it. At the same time, we know for sure that our guests will return to us for new events of the festival and we are always happy to invite them again and again.
You had a hugely successful Big Art Festival summer. What’s in store for guests in the fall-winter season and in the new 2024 season?
Our summer events have been very successful indeed. Monaco, Porto Cervo, Capri. We are very happy with the perfect summer season. It was a huge success. We are also very proud of our international partners – and these are Chopard and Omniyat, Rubeus, La Scolca, Il Palogio, and others, who trust us. For them, we develop unique marketing integrations. For us, the partner’s success is important. We are proud that major global brands have been working with us for many years trusting us.
We have big plans for the fall-winter season. This is the Seal concert in Turkey, in a luxury hotel D Maris Bay on September 10th, and the concerts of Basta, Zivert in Dubai on 5th of November. And of course, we are preparing a unique New Year’s Eve celebration in Dubai. It will be unforgettable. Every time we come up with something unusual for each event, so many surprises await you.
