The 15th open city competition of young pop song and dance performers "Zvezdopad" has ended in Magadan. The creative competition brought together about 400 participants.

The teams from Magadan “Children” and “Jam Babes” became the winners of the Grand Prix of the competition from the social partner of the event, Polymetal. "Starfall" was held in two rounds, the first was remote, and in the second more than 50 solo vocalists, 18 musical groups and 18 choreographic ensembles performed. Polymetal also took over the organization of the flight of the Tyullipil song and dance ensemble of the peoples of the North from distant Evensk to the capital of Kolyma. The head of the ensemble Olga Ikavav said that after the ensemble successfully passed the first round, everyone was very worried about whether it would be possible to get to Magadan. Such contests are very important for creative development, and personal communication cannot be replaced by anything. And thanks to the support of Polymetal, everything worked out, and Tulipil became the owner of the II degree diploma.

Deputy Mayor of Magadan Yuri Kazetov noted that the current "Starfall" was the first major event in the cultural life in the region, and although there were fears that the number of participants would decrease due to the pandemic, this did not happen.

Denis Novikov, Deputy Director for Human Resources and Social Issues of the Magadan branch of Polymetal UK JSC, emphasized that support for young talents has long become a tradition for the company, Polymetal has been helping with the Starfall since 2007. And this year, despite all the difficulties, the participants showed impressive performances.
