20:30 Vadim Eilenkrig and Eilenkrig Crew
Vadim Eilenkrig is Russian number 1 jazz trumpeter, a popular TV host and a famous powerlifter! A graduate of Maymonides State Academy in Moscow, for ten years Vadim was the lead trumpet of one of the best world’s jazz orchestras - Igor Butman’s Big Band. His first solo album, "The Shadow of Your Smile," recorded with ex-Brecker Brothers members and produced in 2009 by Igor Butman, became one of the country’s best selling albums. The album became a springboard for Vadim’s solo career. He launched a number of projects such as duets with outstanding pianists Anton Baronin and Daniel Kramer, a show with a TV and radio host and singer Timur Rodriguez, and the Vadim Eilenkrig Quintet. Vadim frequently tours Europe with solo concerts, and takes part in various musical festivals in Munich, Dusseldorf, Riga and Tallinn. In March 2016 Vadim performed at Sing Jazz festival in Signapore on the same stage with Candy Dulfer and Incognito. A few years ago a senior Russian business newspaper called Vadim «the Russian Chris Botti». However, Vadim has developed his unique, original style, inimitable sound and manner, and now, no doubt, he is one of the most recognizable and sought after Russian jazz musicians.

20:00 You Me At Six (UK)
A mix of post-hardcore, melodic pop-punk, and aggressive alt-rock, British quintet You Me at Six rose to mainstream popularity with their 2008 debut Take Off Your Colours, followed two years later by their breakout sophomore album Hold Me Down, which reached the Top Five in the U.K. They remained an international chart staple throughout the next decade, with each of their first four LPs going gold in the U.K., while 2014's Cavalier Youth cracked the Billboard Top 200 in the U.S. Formed in 2004 in Weybridge, Surrey, the band's lineup comprises Josh Franceschi (vocals), Max Helyer (guitar), Chris Miller (guitar), Matt Barnes (bass), and Dan Flint (drums). They made their recording debut in 2006 with We Know What It Means to Be Alone, a four-track EP that was followed by another, Untitled 4 Track EP. You Me at Six made their full-length debut one year later with Take Off Your Colours. It reached number 25 on the U.K. albums chart. Thanks in part to heavy touring, including a performance at the 2007 Slam Dunk Festival, the band's popularity grew steadily and earned them a nomination for Best British Band at the 2008 and 2009 Kerrang! Awards. You Me at Six released their second album, Hold Me Down, in 2010. It reached the Top Five of the U.K. albums chart. The following year, the band relocated to L.A. to work on their third release, Sinners Never Sleep. The record saw them move in a heavier direction and featured throaty vocals from Bring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes and Parkway Drive's Winston McCall. The album peaked at number three in the U.K. album chart. Titled Cavalier Youth, their fourth studio release arrived in early 2014 and went straight to the top of the U.K. album chart. Reflecting on the successes of their first decade together, the band began working in a new direction, bringing in Nashville-based producer Jacquire King to helm their punchy, hip-hop-influenced fifth LP, 2016's Night People.
