The article presents early insights from an ongoing study of music cultures among young audiences in Moscow and Stockholm. The cross-cultural study focuses on the impact of the Internet on music use and meanings of music in everyday life. The study reveals that the music-related activities in Russia are majorly concentrated on the social networking website VKontakte. Practices related to this and other platforms form complex folksonomies of online and offline listening and communication, intertwined with experiences of live music.
