"Etnodzhem" (Ethno-jam) is a new project - an experimental musical event with participation of guests and festival participants, where the musical traditions of various peoples with unique sounds of ancient national instruments interacted with various musical styles. For the first time, the "Sayan Ring" audience could approach ethnic folklore productions in the "Yurt of story-tellers", where performers from Khakassia, Tuva and Altai revealed new facets of oral folk art. Krasnoyarsk Cultural-Historical museum complex project "Art in Nature", representing art of creative youth of Siberia was also introduced for the first time.

About 250 people from Russia (first of all from Krasnoyarsk Krai and republic Khakassia), Mongolia, India, Cameroon participated in the "Town of the Masters".  There was a new feature "Fair of  eco-products", introducing natural products and hand-made artifacts for health and beauty.

The order was secured daily by 215 police staff, as well as members of Abakan and Minusinsk Cossacks.  Special attention was paid to road traffic safety. As a result of  these measures, there were no instances of disruption of public order during the festival., translated by Heda Jindrak
