More than 12 years ago (in 2003), a group of young Russian New Yorkers organized to become cultural influencers and trendsetters. In 2014 we started a new chapter. Since we know a thing or two about what a good event is, we’d like to share the knowledge. RussianMix seeks out and publicizes events that are interesting and relevant to our community. On our site you can see what’s happening that is of interest to YOU rather than spend time sifting through your friends’ Facebook events; you can get your tickets to concerts and festivals – all in one place; and you can connect to those who share similar interests.
More than ten years ago (in 2003), a group of young Russian New Yorkers organized to become cultural influencers and trendsetters. They were tired of passively participating in night and cultural life and wanted to create experiences that would be relevant to them. The original founders – Vladimir Shifrin, Arturas Vaitaitis, Andrey Zhdanov – envisioned a new idea - and RussianMix was born. What followed was a decade of tussovki – informal social gatherings – parties, concerts and festivals. In that time, an estimated 20,000 people attended our events. Our contact list has over 30,000 names.
For the curious or nostalgic, you can see videos and pictures here:
RussianMix Vostok 6 Festival @ Frying Pan - June 16, 2007
RussianMix Magic Night Party @ Moomia lounge - May 11, 2008
So as our good party friends used to say: "No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep.
See you at the next event!
