The DJs will remix music by Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Mosolov to a backdrop of historic Russian film clips and live art installations at the event, which is being dubbed “a progressive exploration of the sounds, sights, and philosophies of the Stalin era”.

In addition to dancing and DJing, the evening will feature a midnight performance by a 10-piece theremin orchestra in celebration of the birthday of the late Robert Moog.
