Xpresia Festival: SLUKH.MEDIA brings Ukrainian artists to UK for EuroFestival 2023
Xpresia Festival is a unique and free-to-attend festival concept that brings together different forms of both electronic and performing arts within a carefully curated three-day program, celebrating culture, unity, and creative freedom of expression.
Xpresia was born from the shared desire to bring Ukrainian and UK artists together in solidarity as Liverpool hosts Eurovision on Ukraine’s behalf. The festival is collaboratively produced by both British and Ukrainian creative producers and curators to deliver something truly unique in Liverpool as part of EuroFestival 2023.
Across three days – Sunday 7th, Monday 8th, and Tuesday 9th May – over 30 Ukrainian and UK artists will showcase their work to the city and the world beyond. Taking place in the thriving development area of the Ten Streets, Xpresia will happen across some of Liverpool’s best independent arts and music venues such as The Invisible Wind Factory (Hall, Substation & Garden), Meraki, and Quarry.
SLUKH.MEDIA will introduce the wave of new Ukrainian music to European fans as part of the Xpresia festival. Among the artists: Zetetics, Stas Koroliov, TUCHA, Zavoloka, Love’n’Joy, Krapka;KOMA, Zbaraski, Palmo X, Marineris, Andrii Barmalii, Nastya Muravyova, Tweeman, and others.
Creative technology and visual arts, electronic music production and DJs, live music, theater, and cabaret will be among artistic disciplines showcased across Xpresia Festival in a celebration bringing Ukrainian and UK artists together as part of the Eurovision festivities.

Maksym Serdiuk, SLUKH.MEDIA founder & Editor-in-Chief, “I see the great challenge for SLUKH.MEDIA and me personally in popularizing Ukrainian culture and music. The Ukrainians have always fought for the possibility to express their own opinions, minds, and creative ideas. Xpresia Festival will be a great experience for you to come together over us.”
Oleh Teteriatnyk, creative producer of Xpresia. Perfectionist London, “We are bringing emerging artists from Ukraine to Liverpool. Some of them are mainstream, some are pretty alternative, but both are underrepresented. So I’m happy about the opportunity to show how European we are in music. I’m looking forward to presenting them in the UK and filling the worst time for every Ukrainian with something good. Hope that we can manage quantum leap with every artist we have.
Xpresia Festival will showcase the Ukrainian spirit and intention to the UK audience. So I’m watching the space for them in the media to put this music on air and into every headphone. It’s a pleasure how much support has been given to us by Culture Liverpool and the Mayor. Liverpool is breathing and pulsing with music. Let’s roll.”
