The central pier welcomed the guests of the multicultural festival Goby Fest. The program includes a culinary master class, children's activities, photo areas and a variety of food courts with traditional dishes. Endorphins, Schmalhausen, Jerry Heil, Laud and other Ukrainian artists performed on the stage by the sea.

Many were interested in the new art object. The work of the trading port, metallurgical plants, the noise of the sea and the railway, blows in the ring and children's laughter. These and other sounds familiar to every resident of Mariupol are recorded on audio by the authors of the project "Sounds of the City", dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine. The purple wave is the result of several sound design and 3D visualization programs. With its help you can hear the way our city sounds. To do this, use the QR code and go to the project website. The color was chosen not by chance - it is the color of the sunset over the sea.
