The World Dimash Fan Groups PreParty
The fun started when Dimash&Dostar Fan Group members started to arrive to Astana from the former Soviet countries. We have become a family a long time ago communicationg for months and months via the Internet. But nothing is better than communicating in person. Dostars that came from other countris were interested in Kazazhstan traditions? language, and were asking about the pronunciation of certain words to be able to reply to locals with correct pronunciation. We discussed our cultures, countries, got to know Astana closer. And, of corse, we always remembered who we all came for.
From the very first day of arrival our group started preparing for the PreParty, only now in real life. the first task on the agenda was welcoming foreign fans. Dimash Dostar Fan Group members met fans from the USA, Japan, China, Germany, helped them with the tickets to the concert abnd accommodation. We Wanted them to feel our care and appreciation. We also had the chance to meet Terry Lin who we also care about as much a sDimash does. So the initial tasks were fulfilled withing a couple of days, but all the best was yet to come.
On June 26 Dimash&Dostar Fan Group members were anxiously waiting for the guests to come. Closer to 6pm the fans started to arrive to the PreParty full of enthusiasm and in a good mood. The atmosphere was casual, we all chatted away and took pictures with each other. Then we introduced Kazakh cuisine to all guests and helped them communicate with each other.
Dimash's former university group Erkebulan Turmuhambetova, Brothers Zhugunusov, Mirch of Getting - dombra player, Omar Ainagul officials mates performed at the World Fan Groups PreParty. Despite being extremely busy Dimash's parents, Kanat and Svetlana, also came to the party with their whole famiily as well as friends, Alpamys Sharimov and Aysultan to greet the fans on behalf of Dimash. Kazakh and China famous opera singer Maira Mukhammedkyzy could not attend the party but she sent a very touching video. Mass media also attended the party: "Kazakhstan" and "31" TV channels.
This event has given the fans from different countries the ooportunity to get to know each other, share their stories, feel the unity. Dimash is equally important to all the fans and we are happy that we all came together as one and it happened on Dimash's homeland.
The next day Dimash& Dostar were already at the stadium from the early morning helping with preparations for the concert: hanging the boards, placing the LED sticks on the seats. Together with other fan groups we decorated Dimash's dressing room and put special traditional Kazakh food and presents made especially for Dimash.
Before Dimash went on stage the organizing commitee showed two videos prepared especially for this concert by Dimash Sister and Dimash&Dostar. Needless to say that the concert went amazing! To be able to fully understand the extent to which it was performed, one should see it live. A sea of 30.000 fans cheered and supported their idol while Dimash was controlling and playing with that sea of people like a magician. But everything comes to an end, so did the concert... We were ecstatic and sad at the same time because it was all over. Oh, wait... No, it wasn't! It's NOT! This is only the beginning of a very important time in the lives of Dimash's fans and the artist himself! This is BASTAU!
