Brest Bike Festival 2019 How do the bikers relax in the camp"Orlyonok"?
From May 24 to May 26, Brest once again hosts the largest Bike festival in the country, the Brest Bike Festival 2019 Today, participants of the rally drove around the city in a convoy, and are now standing in near the Ice Palace where demonstrations and moto competitions are held. In the evening, the bikers are going to the camp "Orlyonok" again - a place for rest and standing for the night where the main entertainment program of the festival takes place. MediaBrest.by has visited the camp and seen how bikers relax and have fun at the festival.
This year, about the same number of participants as last year came to Brest. And this is about 10,000 motorcyclists from more than 20 countries of the world. The most participants are from Europe and the CIS. Traditionally, they all gather at the base of the camp “Orlyonok”. Last year, the organizers expressed the idea of changing the place. But as it turned out, there was no more suitable territory that could accommodate such a number of participants. As a result, the place was left unchanged this year.
At the time of the festival, the children's camp “Orlyonok” is turning into a completely not a children's town, filled with motorcycles, bikers and people who just want to relax. Many participants come for the whole night, creating tent cities here.
The admission ticket costs 30 rubles. This is a single ticket, which allows entering the territory of the camp for all three days. Many participants of the rally have come to Brest from distant places of Russia and Europe. There are a lot of regular participants among them. For example, the deaf-and-dumb traveler from Minsk Vladimir Yarets has come to the Brest Bike Festival once again.
He is known for his dream to enter the Guiness Book of Records as the world’s only deaf-and-dumb motorcycle-traveler who has traveled all over the world. Vladimir has visited 142 countries for the last 13 years (from 2000 to 2013). The total length of the path was 450 thousand km. Vladimir noted this journey on the map, which now travels with him. Today, the legendary motorcycle-traveler is 78 years old.
Another traveler from Kazakhstan, Dmitry Petrukhin, also came to the festival. On his motorcycle, he traveled to 150 countries. He is no stranger to travel to a long distance. Therefore, 9000 km from Kazakhstan to Brest did not become an obstacle on the way to the festival.
His way to the City on Bug took 10 days. Why is he so attached to the Brest Bike Festival? “Meeting with friends, communication. This is a good party with good music, beautiful girls and cool guys, ”said a biker from Kazakhstan.
As the participants of the festival say, in the first place the atmosphere, communication with friends and new acquaintances attract and encourage them to overcome hundreds of kilometers and come to the festival. In addition, if we talk about the atmosphere, then there is complete rest and no censorship.
There are various competitions, which are often quite frank, performances of strippers and a lot of music in the genre of rock. Such groups as “Black square”, Time Square, “Fire Orchestra”, Plum Bum rock on the stage.
It is difficult to describe the mood and atmosphere in words. It needs to be felt. After all, each perception is individual. Therefore, we provide you with photos from the festival, so that you try to understand everything and perhaps get the wish to become a participant.
