Mikhail Shurygin

President, NCA Group of Companies.
Mikhail graduated from The Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, specializing as an English teacher, and it was a foreign language that brought him into the concert field.

In 1998, he organized the first concert — the performance of the Vacuum group in St. Petersburg, which led to the birth of the company NCA, which for many years has been one of the leaders in the Russian concert industry, and is also one of the few companies that have successfully managed to reach 20-summer turn in the field of concert activity.

Each NCA project is a search for new forms, among which:

The best concert venue in Russia — Ice Palace;\
The world's largest festival "Rock over the Volga" (692 thousand people);
The most progressive Russian festival of Western rock music GreenFest (LinkinPark, MUSE, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Limp Bizkit, P! NK, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Prodigy, Metallica);
The most visited festival over the 18 years of its existence, the Invasion Festival (2006, Ryazan);
The largest international festival of classical rock “Heroes of World Rock” (2001-2006, revived in 2018 in Novokuznetsk);
Opening of the Gazprom Arena stadium February 22, 2017;
Large-scale publicly available projects on Palace Square in St. Petersburg, Vasilievsky Spusk Red Square in Moscow: the world premiere of the movie "Transformers 3" (Linkin Park), "Our in the City", "Petersburg live", "Autoradio gives the car" and others;
Significant social projects: the Time Out Stop AIDS festival, the Rock to Sky Orthodox festival, the Gold on Black festival, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Russian submarine fleet, and others.

The company actively organizes all-Russian tours of performers, works with leading domestic and international artists. For many years, the legendary Russian performers have been collaborating with the NCA: DDT, Alice, Pelagia, Secret, Lube, Picnic, Chizh & Co, Agatha Christie and others.

The NCA portfolio includes world-class shows: Rammstein, Robbie Williams, Linkin Park, MUSE, Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chili Peppers, P! NK, Kylie Minogue, Bryan Adams, Joe Cocker, Robert Plant, Deep Purple, Roxette, Lana Del Rey, Marilyn Manson, Thirty Seconds To Mars et al.

The main difference between the NCA and its market colleagues is its multi-format format and experience in holding diverse events: concerts, festivals, VIP receptions, open-air, high-tech shows of world stars, constant cooperation with the city administration, including the coordination of events at all levels and ensuring public safety. On November 3, 2018, NCA, with the support of the St. Petersburg Administration, held its own independent music award - the NCA Saint Petersburg Music Awards, combining the best musical talents of the northwestern region.

At the moment, the NCA is organising more than 100 events a year, which invariably become bright events in the cultural life of the country and the city and cause a positive resonance among reputable media.
