The Spasskaya Tower Festival, one the most trending and major celebrations held right in the very heart of Moscow, could not be imagined without the multifaceted support provided by the Rostec State Corporation , Rosoboronexport and Transneft companies, permanent partners and loyal friends of the Festival.

“The Spasskaya Festival has secured its right to be among the top three such venues on par with the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, held in Scotland since 1950, and Basel Military Tattoo, held in Switzerland since 2006. Every year some of the world’s best military bands come to Moscow. Over the twelve years of its history, the Spasskaya Tower Military Tattoo welcomed more than 160 artistic groups from 54 countries. A strong and remarkable event, the Festival washes off all the boundaries between nations. Using the language of military music it speaks about the importance of strengthening peace. I am confident that this year’s Festival will once again become one of the most vivid and exciting events of Moscow’s cultural life attracting big audiences not only from all over Russia, but abroad as well” , said Segey CHEMEZOV, CEO of the Rostec State Corporation.

“Cooperation is Strength, says the motto of our organization. And we strongly believe that the Festival’s activities seek to strengthen relationships between Russia and its partners in the global arena. If you want a vivid example of how arts unite nations, have a look at the Spasskaya Tower Festival. And you’ll witness how a cultural event may bring together people from different countries who seek to create and make bold experiments in the fascinating world of dance and music” , noted Alexander MIKHEEV, CEO of Rosoboronexport.

“The Festival has already become one of the most well-established and thrilling events of Moscow’s cultural life” , highlighted Nikolai TOKAREV, President of Transneft.
