June 12 at the airfield “Tushino” in Moscow was the regular, the sixteenth festival of Maxidrom. This year, the organizers (the agencies – C.A.T., SAV Entertainment and NYAT) abandoned the usual festival genre with a variety of performers, inviting only six English-language bands, each of which played a full concert watch program. The headliners of the event were the famous bands Simple Plan, HIM and Thirty Seconds to Mars.
JSA once again became a partner of the legendary rock festival. Especially for the event, stage company JSA built on the territory of the airfield a scene with a total width of 50 and a depth of 35 m with under-roof area – 20×14 m, a back-stage area – 16×20 m zone, a special podium for the fan zone and a two-story FOH – 6×4 m. For the infrastructure of the festival JSA installed 500 m barriers, 3 000 m fence, turnstiles and about 100 m fan-barriers. In addition, JSA invited subcontractors for the production of some of the work in this case.
Alexander Strizhak, President of JSA: “We have a long-standing relationship with the festival. We started our cooperation back in the second half of the 1990s, when everything was just beginning. Events of this magnitude at that time were a novelty and were held in the indoor stadium of sports complex “Olimpiyskiy”, and now this is a big festival of music in the open air. “
