The Sheffield four-piece will top in the bill at the Subbotnik festival in the eastern European city on July 6th 2013 marking the first ever open air event to be held in Moscow and Arctic Monkeys' first visit to Russia.

Alex Turner and co will be joined by Hurts, Foals and Jessie Ware who have also been announced in the first batch of bands.

Subbotnik will be held in Gorky Park which is one of Moscow's biggest and oldest parks for what is set to be a great summer bash in the Russian capital.

Arctic Monkeys' drummer Matt Helders recently dropped a hint that the band's fifth studio album could be released by the end of the year.

When questioned by NME about the sound direction the group has taken, Helders simply replied with "2013" indicating that fans may be able to hear some new music over the next 12 months.
