Summary/Abstract: Art festivals, particularly in recent years, have participated increasingly actively in the exchange of cultural values in artistic life. An adequate evaluation of their role for the contemporary society requires a more precise definition of their specifics, potential, benefits, and possible adverse consequences. The paper analyses the attempts at classifications of the arts and types of festivals. Using the provided data, a model of a typology of art festivals is proposed. The model takes into account both the achievements of the theoretical apprehension of the arts, and the specifics of the festival practices, which draw energy from various systems of social life.
