Weekend in Moscow: Drone Expo, Tuborg Green Jam and More

Tuborg Green Jam

Tuborg Green Jam

Celebrating street culture

Billed as “a festival from another angle,” Tuborg Green Jam is a celebration of the street music, art, sport, style and food young trendy things in Moscow are raving about. Special guests include outspoken American rapper Earl Sweatshirt and St. Petersburg musician BMB Spacekid. Feeling hungry after fighting your way to the front of the crowds? Grab a bite from Moscow institution Burger Brothers or Gyros for Heroes before watching professional and amateur skateboarders in action and treating yourself to a new pair of high tops.

Drone Expo

Free your inner pilot

Are you a drone fanatic? Do you spend afternoons setting up courses to fly your quadrocopter and annoying pedestrians and stray dogs with their buzzing? If so, or if you aspire to become a master pilot, come to Sokolniki over the weekend for Russia’s first drone expo. You’ll get to test-drive some new models, show off your skills in competitions, check out what your next purchase will be, and hang out with other like-minded folk. Talks, workshops, and a conference are just some of the other activities on offer.

Life Picnic

How to be healthy, wealthy and wise

Head to Krasnaya Presnya Park for two days dedicated to health, beauty and sports. Come for yoga, dance classes, and other activities like cheerleading and a mood and ab enhancer. Or give your hair, make-up and nails a makeover while your buddy has a massage. Check out your blood pressure, sugar levels and get a breast cancer screening. Ask doctors for advice on fitness and meditation. Play some sports and then spend some time indulging in some uplifting and wholesome cash therapy in the marketplace. When you work up an appetite, head over to the food court for something delicious and possibly even healthy. Tickets online or at the door.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
