"Due to the unstable epidemiological situation in Moscow and the impossibility of holding the event in the format we have planned, Zhara International Music Festival has been moved to Crocus City Hall. The dates of the concerts and the program remain unchanged. All previously purchased tickets are valid and will be transferred to the concert hall according to the selected categories.
