Information about the festival

The Tenth International Military Music Festival «Spasskaya Tower» will take place from the 26th August till 3th September 2017 on Red Square in Moscow

The International Military Music Festival «Spasskaya Tower», the parade of the honor guards units of the heads of states and of the best military music bands of Russia and other countries takes place every year on Red Square in Moscow.

The Festival is held according to the President of Russian Federation v. Putin’s decree and under the patronage of the Public Council, headed by the first vice-chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly A. Zhukov.

More than 140 groups from 40 countries have taken part in the Festival since it was created. Every year about 1500 musicians, military men and other artists perform at the «Spasskaya Tower».

Owing to this colossal event military musicians that represent all the variety of the national, artistic and military traditions of the world, become the ambassadors of peace.

For 7 years in row the Festival has a special guest star: Mireille Mathieu, legendary French singer, who performed world famous hits, such as «Le temps du Muguet» and «Non je regrette rien».

Within the framework of the «Spasskaya Tower» solemn receptions and amazing concerts of classic music in the Kremlin with the greatest world famous stars are held.

Some years ago the Festival created a special event for children — «Spasskaya Tower for kids». It’s an educational and entertaining show for children under 13 years old. This project introduces children to the Russian military traditions, popularizes children’s equestrian sport and Russian equestrian traditions, presents the best children’s music groups and carries out the social responsibility program of the Festival and its' partners.

The charity program is a very important part of the Festival. It provides thousands of tickets for the show to the vulnerable groups of society, as well as to children’s institutes, Moscow schools, Moscow region schools and other regions of Russia.

The level, contents, audience and effect of the «Spasskaya Tower» have no rivals. The Festival is duly considered one of the greatest international projects in Russia.
