Before my time and never heard of it, but looks like a good time. Given the artists that performed, my biggest question is how did they get all that blow into Russia.

Probably the same way Howard Marks got his into the States , inside the PA speakers.

I didn't go to this concert, but I played at another festival with 30.000 people in Siberia in 1990. Someone there gave me the t-shirt with the Moscow Music Peace Festival. It has a big picture and logo at the front, and the band list is on the back. The soundman at the Bajkal Festival said he had to drive his truck for three weeks to get the sound gear there. We played at a stadium. Lucky for us there was no rain.
