Welcome to the MuzEnergo
international honest music festival!
Jazz, fusion, funk, soul, indie, folk, country and reggae from all over the world.
Our next 16th festival is scheduled on 4 Saturdays: Nov.30, Dec.7, Dec.14 and Dec.21, 2013. We see non-Russian speakers not often in our gigs, so we not try to keep English page really up to date. But you should know the dates, the level of representativity (we’re waiting for bands and individuals from Switzerland, Spain and several cities of Russia), and you should be informed that any questions will be answered: write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +7-916-511-37-41.
In short, the 16th festival edition is our traditional chamber-style December session which is held in the library of Joint Nuclear Research Institute. We mix different areas (music, literature, cinema, discussions and even cuisine) at the same building for over 8 hours per day, providing very different sorts of activities to very different audience. This is the less crowded but probably the most soulful format of MuzEnergo festivals.
The festival historical center and hometown, Dubna, is not the only festival’s place today, but it still plays the key part: its’ a starting point in spreading the artists’ music over the rest of festival cities.Dubna is located in Moscow region (120 kms north from Moscow, the capital of Russian Federation; see the Google Maps)
