The Youth Day festival is being organized by yatalant.ru jointly with the Committee on Youth Policy of St Petersburg. It will will take place on June 27, and will be held in a new format "open air" on the beach of Peter and Paul Fortress. The groups "Marseille" and "Boombox" are scheduled to be the headliners of the festival.

The festival will take place in 3 main zones namely "Beach", "Square" and "Graffiti". 

"Beach" will host the main events of the day. DJs will keep the beach live with background music. Towards the evening, hip-hop battles will be ushered in on the main stage of the festival. There will also be performances by trial motorcyclists and master classes of representatives of the Federation of Parkour, Ultimate (team play with frisbee disk) and a beach football.

"Square" will host cheerleading and break dancing: representatives from the Federation of cheerleading in St Petersburg will perform a specially prepared program. Break-dancers will take the stage after the cheerleading to entertain the audience with performances and break-dance battles.

"Graffiti" will be located between "Square" and "Beach" to ensure good passability and spectator interest. Here, graffiti masters will create a unique picture, which will be cut into pieces so that each guest could take a piece home at the end of the event. The artists will periodically comment on their work.

An animator will be on hand to inform guests of the beginning of events in a particular zone and direct visitors to a zone most interesting to them.
The Youth Day will end with a concert by the groups "Marseille" and "Boombox". The will be joined on the main stage by the winner of the "V dvizhenii" (In Motion) contest in yatalant.ru under the "Artist" category.
