In this article attempt the analysis of consumption subculture involved youth 4 Russian cities: St.-Petersburg, Ulyanovsk, Kazan and Makhachkala with the use of two research paradigms – studies of cultural consumption and the post-subcultural approach. The database of the study is the results of a survey of young people (n=3200) conducted within the framework of the project "Creative fields of interethnic interaction and youth cultural scenes of Russian cities" (2015-2017). The results of the analysis confirm the theory of the relationship of omnivorous, status characteristics and cultural consumption. At the same time, Russia's data do not always confirm the results obtained in other countries: for example, extensive economic capital is not always associated with advanced consumption, but the positive impact of higher education is confirmed by the results of previous studies. Inclusion in youth cultural scenes has an impact on the consumption of both: music (which is more related to subcultural capital) and cinema (despite the fact that cinema is directly related to the interests only some groups) and is often (but not always) a marker of advanced cultural consumption. At the same time, each individual scene has its own distinctive features and peculiarities, which can also be interpreted through the peculiarities of cultural consumption of their participants.
