KOTOfest (CATfest) is not a cat show as you might think judging from its name. KOTOfest is an atmospheric festival of contemporary art happening in Odessa on the first weekend of August.
KOTOfest is a multy-genre contemporary art festival which offers interesting series of events, exhibitions and performances. Those interested in music, cinema, photography, design, theatre, fashion, digital- and art-media will have a chance to spend an exciting and dynamic weekend in Odessa.
KOTOfest will be hosted by Cats’ Flat promotional-group, hence the name of the festival, the initiative of progressive art-conscious people who aim to present art in its different forms to locals and guests of Odessa. The symbol of the festival, as you may have already guessed, is a cat. Cats love freedom, have their own delicate philosophy and are simply super cute; they are often associated with everything warm, cozy and pleasant, just the kind of the atmosphere the hosts of the festival are aiming at.
