Go back

As a longstanding tradition, the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival will crown the end of the summer season in Moscow.

Ten splendid evening shows featuring some of the best Russian and foreign military bands and artistic groups supported by the fine 3D mapping, strong theatrical performances, and magnificent fireworks will unfold on Red Square to the delight of the Muscovites and guests of the capital.

Over the eleven years of its history the Spasskaya Tower Festival welcomed more than 160 artistic groups from 54 countries, became one of the largest international events of the country’s cultural life and 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.

The geographical footprint of the Festival already spans all corners of the globe. This year Moscow will give a warm welcome to the Central Band of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, the Band of the Azerbaijan Higher Military School named after Heydar Aliyev, the Turkish Armed Forces Armoni Band, the Military Band of the Korean People’s Army of the DPR of Korea, HANNURI Yeonhui Team of Korean National University of Arts, Fanfara Alpina Tridentina from Italy, Tveit Union Musikkorps and Strømsgodset Musikkorps, two marching bands from Norway, the Honor Guard and Exemplary Band of the Armed Forces of Belarus, the Egyptian Military Symphonic Band, the Honor Guard and Exemplary Band of the Kazakhstan National Guard, as well as the International Celtic Massed Pipes and Drums, and the International Celtic Dance Team.

Each and every year the Spasskaya Tower Festival becomes more popular with all the categories of audiences. Moreover, it attracts wide attention both of Russian and international media. The last year’s run saw media of 36 countries mentioning it in their publications (according to Smyslographia Analytical Agency and Mediologia Information and Analytical System). Further, following the Smyslographia agency, the Spasskaya Tower Festival became the most cited event of its kind in 2018 outrunning the Edinburgh festival, the world’s oldest military tattoo, and receiving the outmost attention from media of Great Britain, Spain and the USA.

We are glad to invite Media representatives to join us in this wonderful journey and be the first to see the spectacular show featuring vibrant and colorful performances by some of the best Russian and foreign artistic groups.
