With countless music awards under his belt, record-breaking albums and a clutch of new tracks Basta, also known as Vasilii Vakulenko, will take the stage of the largest and most recognisable venue in Dubai – Coca-Cola Arena, Dubai's home of live entertainment – on 5 January, 2022.

The famous rapper star has been best known for his tracks “Sansara”, “My Game”, “Urban”, “Vipusknoy” and also his collaborations with the major hip-hip and pop artists such as Scriptonite, T-Fest, GUF, Zivert and Gorod 312.

The artist’s tracks have had over 500 million views on YouTube and are constantly broadcasted on the radio and TV.

After sold-out concerts in Russia and worldwide, the multi-award-winning artist will perform for his fans in Dubai in the framework of “From Russia With…” festival taking place from 5 January, 2022 till 13 January, 2022 in the framework of the cultural programme of the Russia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.

“From Russia with ...” - is a festival of Russian culture. The expansive programme will acquaint the guests of the festival with the traditions of Russian culture and its musical diversity. Film and theatre projects, cartoons, contemporary art, music — this and much more will represent such a different, bright, modern and, of course, hospitable Russia.

The theme of the Russia Pavilion at Expo 2020 is “Creative mind: driving the future”. Inside, visitors to the pavilion learn about the scientific and cultural achievements of the past, but also – and just as importantly – about how the creative mind can build a future to benefit all humanity, introducing visitors to the latest achievements of Russian creativity.
