Aug. 4 noon to 11 p.m.
Afisha Picnic, one of the oldest and largest Moscow summer festivals, will take place at its traditional spot in Kolomenskoye Park. This year’s headliner is the Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, which has won international acclaim, Grammy awards and an Oscar nomination. Their latest album “Everything Now,” released last year, received polarized reviews, but was loved by fans nevertheless.
Other imports at Afisha include American rapper Joey Badass, indie folk veterans from Scotland Belle & Sebastian, as well as Rhye, another Canadian band, specializing in mellow R&B.
