About the Festival "Spasskaya Tower - 2016"

The Ninth International Military Music Festival “Spasskaya Tower” will take place from 27th August till 4th September 2016 in Moscow, on Red Square.

The best Russian and foreign military bands, folk groups as well as honorary guard units of the heads of states will take part in the event. At the end of each performance the joint band of all the participants – around 1,500 musicians – will appear on the Red Square. All the musicians of the Festival will play the final chords to the salvoes of the salute, with the light show on the St. Basil’s Cathedral as the background.

As in the previous years, the festival will be timed to coincide with the Moscow City Day. On the first day of the celebration a procession will march along the Tverskaya Street which will include the bands participating in “Spasskaya Tower”, and on the next day they will give free concerts in the city parks. Following the tradition that has been already established, as a part of the festival the riders from the Kremlin Horse Riding School will perform in a specially equipped manege on the Red Square, and for the youngest spectators the project Spasskaya Tower for Kids will erect a kids’ village with educational entertainment activities.
