“Song Bridges” are concerts that have already become a tradition of the Riga City Festival; in them over the period of three days the concert programmes created by tens of artistic collectives and soloists are performed on the most democratic open-air stage in Riga’s Central Station Square. At the concert will perform both professionals and the best amateur artistic collectives in Riga.
This year, when the Latvian State celebrates its Centenary and the Riga Latvian Society commemorates its 150th anniversary, the theme of our neighbours and our fellow people is particularly emphasized. Collectives of national culture associations from Riga, as well as the special guests to the concert on August 19th such as our neighbours from Estonia — band “Justament”, Genka & Paul Oja, Olavi Oterpalu Band and others— will come up on the stage and bring their well wishes with them.
The guest concert will be dedicated in particular to the European Volleyball Championship qualification game Latvia: Estonia; its co-organizers — the Estonian Volleyball Federation.
