For the first time this festival was held in Moscow on VDNH in 2013 and became an alternative to other open-airs held in the city, drawing the attention of the Moscow public a bright line-up, as well as two very different sites — one under the open sky, the other (electronic-experimental) in the indoor, cold pavilion. Then the headliners were The Killers, Zemfira, next year was no less interesting, in 2015, the festival moved to a new site that brought their guests crazy with the performance of Muse and is not going to stop there.

This year promises to be no less crazy — in the best sense of the word (lovers rock-and-roll and all alternative music genres will understand). Unlike concert 2015, he will pass two days — on 9 and 10 July at the stadium “Open arena” and will offer guests the sets, perhaps the most popular and relevant in today’s international artists, as well as the only event on the Russian performers — the legendary group “the spleen” Alexander Vasiliev.

The performance of this favorite of many team in Russia will be held in the first day. Over the years on stage, she still continues to demonstrate a confident evolution. On the one hand, the “spleen” is a recognizable voice Vasilyev, own style, on the other — each time new meanings that musicians offer to open the listeners in his songs. In 2014 he released a double album “Resonance”, and recently its leader has stated that soon the fans will find another job.
The “neighbors” of the rock band on stage on 9 July will be the Duo The Kills, formed by American vocalist Alison Mosshart and British guitarist Jamie Hinz. To date, these guys are one of the most stylish and creative representatives of the Western music industry. Their creative work is free of clichés, riddled with rhythm drum machine and scolding “to the bones” juicy guitar parts. Also, the venue will be the British alternative rock band “Nothing But Thieves”, despite his relatively young age has already managed to attract the attention of lovers of quality music. They are called successors of Muse, Radiohead and Kasabian, and the debut eponymous album received rave reviews from critics. Since its release, they have become one of the most sought after newcomers on the stage today.
Complete day of the festival headliners — the Red Hot Chili Peppers, whose return fans have been waiting for 4 years. Probably, in the world there is no conscious person who has not heard this group of songs. Honored regalia RHCP is 7 Grammy awards, sold 85 million albums, the charts from MTV and Billboard to pirate trackers. It’s a smooth rotation, full stadiums, soundtracks, TV shows, religious videos, a series of awards, touring and Studio recordings. As the flea said, “to Be a member of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers — means to be free: you are not bound in the choice of style, nobody imposes their worldview, in their categories. It’s your lifestyle that is reflected in how you look and how you talk and how you act.” That is the idea, the organizers decided to make the motto of the Park Live 2016.

Despite the fact that it is called the soul of the artist, the stylistic palette of the songs of the artist is broader, he has a unique voice and is known for both his lyrical ballads, and rousing tracks. Will close the festival with his show sweet Lana Del Rey, who became famous after the release of debut album “Born to die”. Every other Lana song becomes a hit and she is now one of Russia’s most popular foreign performers.
