“Up Above Moscow” is a cycle of open-air music nights up on a rooftop offering unique views of Moscow. The dialogue between musicians and their audiences takes place on the rooftop of the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman pavilion, at the footing of the iconic 24-meter sculpture, a world-renowned symbol of the Soviet Union.
A rooftop time at the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman is not only a great outdoor choice for a summer night but also a chance to expand your music tastes, to add a new angle to your collection of the city’s best sights, and an opportunity to visit all exhibitions currently run by the Exhibition Center.
Music nights at the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman are conducted in two formats, with ‘Rooftop Jazz’ performances on Wednesdays and ‘Electronic Thursdays’ given to electronic musicians and sound designers.
