Picnic Afisha Festival (August 3)

Picnic Afisha, the largest one-day open-air music festival in Moscow, gathers annually more than 50,000 music-lovers. It takes place in one of Moscow's most beautiful parks Kolomenskoye, a former tsar's estate, now a state-owned historical, architectural and nature reserve museum, located within  a 20 minute ride south-east from the city center. Each year the line up has a nice mixture of local artists, underground scene and all well-known headliners. This year is not an exception: the main act will be the concert of legendary British rock band The Cure. Watching Robert Smith on a stage is always an unforgettable experience. Hip-hop star Pusha T with the local MCs  Basta and Antoha MC will provide an authentic vibe. Apart from the music stages, Picnic offers designer market, extensive food court, games and craft zones, workshops and chill out areas. In general, it’s a cool place to go and hang out for a day, as the whole Moscow is going to be there. However, if you’re a real music lover Afisha Picnic is probably a bit too generic, as something like this could happen anywhere.
