4GB is an annual international electronic music festival, organized as a tribute to a pioneer Georgian DJ Gio Bakanidze since 2011. Gio’s friends, with the support of partner organizations, have been doing their best to make the festival unforgettable from year to year. 4GB is a non-profitable structure and all the income goes to the development of the idea. As a result every 4GB tells something new and important – raising the bar to a new level. On Electronauts Music Awards, 4GB was twice recognized as the best event of the year.
