Снайперы на НАШЕСТВИИ: 15 лет вместе

In 2016 The Night Snipers will stand on the main stage of Nashestvie for the 13th time. Participation in the main Russian rock festival has been a part of the band's history for the last 15 years. Each time The Night Snipers presented to thousands of people in the audience their rock-n-roll sets full of drive and energy, many of which were marked amongst the main events of each festival.

Let's recap how it has been from the first appearance by The Night Snipers on Nashestvie.

Nashestvie 2001

August 5, Ramenskoye

This festival became the first one in the history of the band and yet, the band was entrusted with the opening of the second day of the festival. Diana Arbenina showed up in a shawl of "yellow papers" that she immediately ripped with words " Worthy music deserves dignified press". The Snipers' set went on for a little over half an hour and consisted mostly of the songs from the 2001 album Rubezh as well as from the not yet released Tsunami album.

Nashestvie 2002

August 11, Ramenskoye

Second Nashestvie in the history of The Night Snipers is remembered, in particular, by the mass audience flesh mobs. Continuing the tradition born in spring of 2002, thousands of paper planes were flown into the sky during the song "Stolitza"; then for the song "Parokhody" paper ships attached to air balloons were sent to the sky. Snipers took the stage again on the second day of the festival and the half an hour set again consisted on songs from Rubezh and Tsunami albums. That year the festival had a record number of people, over 180 thousands. Besides that, Channel TV6 had a live broadcast of the festival.

Nashestvie 2004

August 8, Emmaus

In 2004 the legendary festival returned to open-air; The Night Snipers returned to the festival as well. The band took the stage again on the second day of Nashestvie besides known and popular hits, the band played 2 songs that were new at the moment from a not yet released album SMS, "Asphal't" and "Senbernary".

The most memorable moment of the Snipers's appearance at the festival was the "shoting" of Diana Arbenina during the final song of the set, "Katastrophichesky". The idea belonged to one of the organizers of the festival, Maksim Vitorgan: during the interlude there was a loud bang and Diana's white shirt got colored with spots of "blood."

Nashestvie 2005

August 6, Emmaus

2005 passed under a symbol of Japan for The Night Snipers: besides the participation in an international project "Simauta", the band decided to record its first Japanese album and thus, during the festival Nashestvie Diana was in Tokyo working in a studio. That is why she attended festival virtually.
There was no separate snipers' set this year, though they decided not to cancel a planned duo with Bi-2 band. As a result, the song "Medlennaya zvezda" was sang in the live link up format Nashestvie-Tokyo.

Nashestvie 2006

August 5-6, Ryazan'

Having missed the previous festival, Diana Arbenina compensated it in 2006 appearing on the main stage of Nashestvie twice. First day, August 5, there was a whole set by The Night Snipers, though, besides its own hits, the band played the famous British "Satisfaction." On the second day of the festival Diana appeared on the stage during Bi-2 set and this time the song "Medlennaya zvezda" sounded in a traditional duo.

Nashestvie 2008

There was no festival held in 2007, though in 2008 Nashestvie for the first time turned into a three-day festival. This time the festival successfully gathered more than a 100-thousand audience. The Night Snipers performed on the second day, July 5.
In spite of the unusual heat, Diana Arbenina showed up on the stage in a formal black suit that was surprisingly accessorized by yellow rubber rain boots. These were distributed to the artists by the organizers of the festival to get to the stage after a really strong rainfall. Although soon Diana sent her boots flying into the audience and continued to sing barefoot.
Besides the traditional hits, snipers' set included some less famous songs like "Atlantida" and "Zemlyanichnaya."
