From July 1st, Christo­pher Sum­mer Fes­ti­val 2017, var­i­ous venues in Vil­nius

The Christo­pher Sum­mer Fes­ti­val wel­comes its 23rd sum­mer this year. For over two months (July and Au­gust) sev­eral dozen con­certs will be pre­sented, rang­ing from time­less clas­si­cal mas­ter­pieces to un­ex­pected stylis­tic com­bi­na­tions. For its artis­tic qual­ity, friendly at­mos­phere and open­ness to cre­ative ideas, it has re­ceived se­ri­ous ac­claim, most re­cently be­ing rec­og­nized with the EFFE La­bel. The motto of the Christo­pher Sum­mer Fes­ti­val is “all gen­res are good, ex­cept for the bor­ing ones.”and so this year, a lim­it­less va­ri­ety of mu­sic will be played: from the world’s beat­box cham­pion to cel­los of the fu­ture, from eth

nic jazz di­rectly from the vol­cano’s crater to stars of the global fla­menco scene, from clas­si­cal mas­ter­pieces to mu­sic from Mali ar­ranged for the gui­tar, from the heart­stir­ring magic of Por­tuguese songs to early Span­ish dances. Hun­dreds of per­form­ers will share their tal­ent, warmth and en­ergy at the con­certs. All you’ll need to do is se­lect your fa­vorites and get ready for an un­for­get­table wave of emo­tions! Full in­for­ma­tion on the fes­ti­val’s pro­gram and more is avail­able at www. kris­tupofes­ti­valiai.lt and for ticket pur­chase please ac­cess www.bili­etai.lt

July 7-9, Bli­uzo Nak­tys Fes­ti­val, Telšiai District, Var­niai Coun­try­side

A long-run­ning lake­side blues and jazz fes­ti­val that’s rau­cous fun for ev­ery­one, Bli­uzo Nak­tys is the old­est open-air sum­mer mu­sic fes­ti­val in Lithua­nia. The sounds of gui­tar, har­mon­ica, drums, sax­o­phone and other in­stru­ments, to­gether with strong vo­cals, in­vite vis­i­tors to lis­ten to real blues at least once a year, and also spend some qual­ity time with loved ones in the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side of Var­niai. The fes­ti­val wel­comes not only Lithua­nian mu­si­cians, but also bands from all over the world: the USA, the UK, Den­mark, the Baltic States, etc. What usu­ally hap­pens is that the guests and artists don’t want to leave the fes­ti­val ter­ri­tory, sim­ply be­cause of its amaz­ing at­mos­phere! A lot of vis­i­tors of Bli­uzo Nak­tys con­sider com­ing to the fes­ti­val to­gether with their fam­ily and friends as an an­nual tra­di­tion. The fes­ti­val may be called a Lithua­nian ver­sion of the leg­endary fes­ti­val Wood­stock: hippy at­mos­phere, re­laxed vis­i­tors, and the feel­ing of peace and love float­ing in the air, makes ev­ery­one feel like one big, hap py fam­ily.
