In the coming 2020, it is planned to hold the next annual rock festival "Invasion", which has long been considered an important cultural event in the country. The event has been organized by Our Radio for many years, and it attracts not only rock music lovers, but also all other genres. The festival is also visited by those wishing to have a good time in the fresh air with friends and family. “Invasion” is an opportunity to participate in sporting events, watch air shows and theater performances, performances by new talented artists and groups, as well as legendary performers who have gained worldwide popularity.
“Invasion” is the largest multi-format event, which is also called “The main adventure of the year”, and 2020 should not be an exception. It has been held since 1999. Initially, it was a small rock concert in honor of the anniversary of Russian Radio, and it took place in the Moscow House of Culture Gorbunov. The audience enjoyed the live performances of Bi-2, Linda, Zemfira, etc. After the successful conduct of the first “Invasion”, the organizers decided to repeat it annually.
In 2000, the performances of rock bands were moved to the suburbs, in Ramenskoye. Dozens of popular performers from Europe and Russia gathered here. A large-scale musical event, which lasts 3 days, was attended by more than 70 thousand spectators. In 2017, this figure exceeded 200 thousand people. Since 2005, not only rock bands, but also representatives of other musical trends have been invited to the festival. The conditions for guests began to improve - tent camps, recreation areas with children, trading floors, places for dancing, and parking were built.
Until 2009, “Invasion” changed several sites and finally, finally “moved” to the Tver region, the village of Big Zavidovo. For so many years, a seemingly simple musical event has turned into a significant cultural event, popular both in Russia and abroad.
In 2019, “Invasion” turned 20 years old, more on video:
