Present Perfect, the Saint Petersburg festival of electronic music and contemporary art is hosting its fifth edition from July 26th through 28th, 2019.
The previous years have proven PPF to be the critical Russian event dedicated to progressive music culture. The claim has been supported by Western media and thousands of visitors from all over Russia.
Today, Present Perfect Festival is indeed a Saint Petersburg's summer staple, and one of the most eagerly awaited gatherings. The jam-packed three-day program is traditionally divided into sections: the main event on Saturday, the opening concert, the educational block, a series of pre-parties, and Sunday's final daytime party by the water.
Musically, Present Perfect Festival is steadily widening its scope. Their fifth-anniversary program will feature quite a few unexpected twists and turns, and essential Russian premieres.
For the second year in a row Present Perfect Festival occupies the Sevkabel Port, a territory that definitely struck a chord with the attendees. It's not hard to see why: a grand view of the Gulf of Finland from a well-designed embankment, massive ships and the far-reaching architecture of the Western High-Speed Diameter motorway. PPF became the first-ever event that made use of the full territory of the port (we're talking thousands of square kilometers of post-industrial beauty). Needless to say, Sevkabel Port got quite hyped after the 2018 edition and evolved into a lively cultural hub.
