This beautiful ship only sails during this celebration. Two entertainers that will host the event will be Julia Kovalchuk and Ivan Urgant, in which were chosen by the students in a vote. Other stars that are going to appear to congratulate the graduates are: Nikolai Valuev, Andrei Arshavin, and Alexander Kerzhakov. 

This huge party will take place all night until the early morning on Sunday June 24th. The metro will open at 04:00, one and a half hours earlier than usual.
