The launch last summer of a Russian version of the Woodstock festival at the Ramensky Racecourse was a widely acclaimed success. Called "Nashestviye 2000," the event drew some 70,000 Russian rock fans and more than 30 bands and solo performers.
This year's event will take place Aug. 4 and 5, at the same location, and will involve the very best representatives of Russia's rock stage. In addition to recognized celebrities and veterans such as ChaiF, Aria and DDT 20 nascent bands yet to draw popular recognition, have also confirmed. A total of 39 bands and solo performers are expected from all over Russia.
7B is one of the new bands scheduled. Since launching in March of this year, the band has released two hit singles, and their debut album is expected in the fall. The band's first success was the song "Molodye vetra" (Young Winds), which they sent to Nashe Radio where it quickly became popular.
This will be the band's second live appearance, following on the heels of the concert held within the framework of the Moscow International Film Festival, where they performed with the band Auction.
Nashestviye 2001 will consist of two major concerts, both starting at 11 a.m. (the racecourse will be open for entry from 9 a.m.) and ending at around 11 p.m. On Saturday, DJs will be working throughout the night, while movies will be showing on the screens that will be installed at the sides of the stage.
Devoted fans can bring tents and stay the night, and enjoy round-the-clock catering.
