The 15th International Music Rock Festival "Maksidrom" will be traditionally held in the summer of 2012 in Moscow for two days. It will take place at the Tushino airfield on June 10 and 11.
This year the leading promotion companies of the country are organizing the Maxidrom 2012 festival - except for S. A. T. SAV Entertainment and Melnitsa operate. The first festival was organized in 1995 and took place at the Olimpiyskiy Sports Complex. Only Russian rock musicians took part in it. And only at the seventh festival, held in 2002, a foreign participant appeared for the first time - the Brainstorm group from Latvia. After that, the event acquired international status. For various reasons, in 1996, 2009 and 2010, "Maksidrom" was not carried out. But in honor of the 20th anniversary of the radio station Maximum, the festival was held in 2011 and was first organized at the Tushino airfield in the open air.
On May 18, seven participants of the Maxidrom 2012 festival have been identified: Everlast, The Cure, Noel Gallagher, She wants revenge and Linkin Park, the Finns The Rasmus and the Swedish-Norwegian group Clawfinger. On the first day of the festival, June 10, the American rock band Linkin Park, as well as Clawfinger and The Rasmus will perform. In the near future it is expected that the name of the fourth participant of the first day of the event will be announced.
