The World Festival of Youth and Students has been held since 1947. In the 50s - early 60s festivals were held under the slogan "For peace and friendship", later - "For anti-imperialist solidarity, peace and friendship". Since 2001, every subsequent Festival has a new slogan, which is traditionally approved at the first international preparatory meeting for the upcoming Festival.

This year the Festival is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution and the 70th anniversary of the festival movement.
