Festival Spasskaya Tower 2017

Spasskaya Tower is a music fiesta, a spectacular show, staged on the background of the monumental walls of the Kremlin, and a great ‘battlefield’ of the bands from different countries fighting for the love and admiration of the audience. The harmonious combination of military, classical, folk and popular music, military band parades and dance shows, laser and pyrotechnical effects makes the Festival one of the brightest and most memorable events of the year.

The Festival is held annually on Red Square.

At Spasskaya Tower everyone can find something to their liking: some people like clear, well-adjusted movements of military men, while others enjoy live orchestral music or cultural exchange with people from other nations. Children are also welcome: for them the Festival has prepared a number of master classes and a horse show. The audiences will also enjoy a lighting show projected to the St. Basil’s Cathedral; each night the event will close with majestic fireworks.

August 27 to September 3, the public will daily enjoy:

30
exciting groups from 14 countries, as well as 10 Russian bands
120
bagpipes from the European Union, 50 performers of Scottish dances
1400
participants forming the massed band of Spasskaya Tower 2017

IMPORTANT! It is forbidden to use flashes, tripods and equipment with large lenses as this disturbs other spectators of the Festival.

It is also forbidden to leave your place and shoot standing in the aisle or in front of the spectator rows. This disturbs other festival spectators and contradicts the safety rules.

In case of violations, representatives of the Festival guarding may ask you to put away the facilities and/or leave the stands.
