TBILISI, DFWatch–The two English bands Placebo and Archive are headliners at this year’s Tbilisi Open Air festival, to be held by a lake near the capital July 3 to 7.
Tickets sales have started for the festival, which has been organized every year since 2009 by the AlterVision Group.
In 2013, Deep Purple played, along with several other well-known performers.
But last year, the lineup had fewer well-known artists than usual due to financial problems, with the Canadian band Chinawoman as one of the main attractions.
Besides Placebo and Archive, this year’s program includes Zemfira, a Russian singer who is quite popular in Georgia, the British trio Tiger Lilllies, American singer-songwriter Beth Hart and the American group Black Label Society. http://www.tbilisiopenair.ge/en#lineup

The festival will be held in a beach-like setting by Tbilisi Reservoir to the northeast of the city center.
