In October 2015, the band performed their last concert and at the beginning of 2016 it was officially announced that the band had broken up.

In addition to her career at electro and dance stage, Sian Evans made her own band in 2014. She always wanted to reconsider some of the songs that had been written for Kosheen, to imagine them combined with live instruments. This new project doesn't have electro-music, but there are jazz, rock and even funk. The singer announced her solo program in the summer of that year in a London jazz-cafe "Camden".

Today, Sian Evans is recording a new album with her band, which is going to be released in the nearest future. She keeps on having live performances that are always filled with magic of the sound and the unique vocals of Sian Evans.

Closing of the Festival and the Sian Evans (KOSHEEN) concert will take place at BIBLIOTEKA, Nevsky Prospect 20.
