Riga to hold large summer solstice events for three days

The traditional Latvian summer summer solstice Jāņi will be celebrated in the capital Riga for three consecutive evenings of folk, theatre and pop music performances from June 21 to 23 that will cost the city 380 212 euros.

According to the spokeswoman of the Riga City Council, Indra Vilde, the tender for the events has been won by the only contender SIA Ideju Institūts.

The company will help organise the gala event of the international folklore festival Baltica 2018, the Farmer and Craftsmen Market Līgo! and evening concerts at the November 11 Embankment.

For example, on the day of the summer solstice, June 21, at the November 11 Embankment over 30 folklore bands from Latvia, China, South Korea, Georgia and other countries will perform traditional music from the evening until 4.30 in the morning of June 22.

More information on the summer solstice festivities and other events in Riga is available on the Live Riga web site (LiveRiga.com).
