- BRINGING CULTURE, ART AND ENTERTAINMENT TOGETHER: THE SABANCI SPRING HITS THE ROAD
- NİL KARAİBRAHİMGİL TAKES THE STAGE AT THE SABANCI SPRING
After receiving a great deal of attention from 200,000 young people last year and being organized for the second time this year, the Sabancı Spring again hits the road. Combining culture, art and entertainment, the festival will travel to meet Turkey's youth on May 9th at Isparta Süleyman Demirel University, on May 11th at Çanakkale 18 Mart University, on May 13th at Kütahya Dumlupınar University, on May 16th at Eskişehir Osmangazi University and May 18th at Kocaeli University. This year Nil Karaibrahimgil will take the stage at Sabancı Spring, which will be open to all young people free of charge.
This Festival Itself Was Designed by Young People on Facebook
Unlike other festivals, Sabancı Holding presented a platform to students on the social network website facebook that allowed them to choose and design the entertainment that they would like to see on their campuses. The students did this through the facebook.com/sabanciholding page.
The Sabancı Spring is held in two parts, as day and night activities, based on students' choices. The day activities this year will include a Chocolate Making Workshop, a Handcrafts Workshop, a Design Workshop, a Music Workshop, a DJ Workshop, a Painting Workshop, Karaoke, a Career Hunt, and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), Guitar Hero and Nintendo Wii tournaments. Again, using facebook, the students will have the opportunity to select which amateur music groups will be the support groups on the main stage, as well as meeting Nil Karaibrahimgil in person. This can all be done via the daily festival schedule on facebook.com/sabanciholding.
Beginning in May and being held at five universities in various regions of Turkey, the Sabancı Spring will ensure that young students get the entertainment that they want, in the style that they want.
