is a major influencer
and one of the biggest producers
when it comes to the post soviet rock’n’roll scene in Russia. Media manager, journalist, TV-host
— he is the man behind the legendary rock-radio stations
in modern Russia — Radio Maximum, Ultra and Nashe Radio.
It is him who created
from scratch the Maxidrom Festival, Nashestive and Chartova Dyuzhina.
Thanks to him we have OST to the Brat-2 film
which has been (and still is) a huge fenomena and influence to the next generations
of not only musicians, but actually the whole country
that just survived the so called "nineties".
It was Mikhail
who has brought to the big audience
such bands as Bi-2, Zemfira, Spleen, Agata Kristi, Okean Elzy, Chicherina
and many-many others.
On this tour Mikhail Kozyrev
is searching for the answer
to the big question — how did the rock’n’roll spirit of freedom and protest
for some turned out to be a way of getting into a friendship with the authorities
that started the most cruel war
of our time?
How did it become possible that rock heroes
turned into greedy and voiceless pro-war pro-Putin pawns
instead of being the voice of rebellion?
There is no better person to find the answers to those questions.
