Concert boom in Moscow
In only two months Moscow have been visited by Hot Chip, Alt-J, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Jessie ware, Hurts, Bat for Lashes, Blus, and some concerts outside festival were held such as Lana Del Ray, Imagine Dragons and The XX. This yearMoscowcan hold the place judging by the quality of music visits with any other European capital. If all these artists would have a performance in the same place, it would be something likeBarcelona’s Primavera orBudapest’s Sziget. Or big town festival which lasts for few days and attracts big number of tourists.
So it is possible thatMoscowbecomes music tourist centre. Even though any other festival will not bring the profit in first year, organizers still don’t think about one big festival because every group and every performer will find their audience, because they consider that even though there is place for developing of festival market in Moscow it is not easy to create easy recognizable festival brand. It cam be seen on the example of festival Park Live which was held this summer on the area of Russian exhibition centre: organizers called musicians of different types(punk group NOFX, hipster Crystal Castle and metals Limp Bizkit). At the end nobody really knew what kind of festival it was, and those who went there did it for groups themselves. So, as organizers say, big festival nobody needs any more, only the possibility to choose among many groups, and that inRussia, where last years many concert business develop, does not lack.« Vrati se na prethodnu stranicu
