Festive Programme

00.00 - 00.00

Music in Riga has been present throughout centuries, saturating every inhabitant of Riga with different emotions and sensations and for the eighth year in a row during the Riga City Festival Old Riga will transform into the centre of live and true music that is easily accessible for everyone. In previous years, more than 500 musicians from Latvia, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Ukraine have participated in the “Street Music Day”, not including all the passers-by who had the chance to take part in music master classes and to create compositions with professional musicians.

This year we have once more invited musicians — professionals, amateurs, musicians of all genres of music to apply for participation in “Street Music Day” by August 7th on website www.ielumuzika.lv on which they have to complete a questionnaire, choose their preferred time and place for a performance from the official “Street Music Day” performance places — Zviedru Gate, Smilšu, Vaļņu, Kaļķu and Rīdzenes Street, Rātslaukums Square or Bastejkalns Park.
