Festival: Riga Festival


June 12th - 21th, 2018

The Riga Festival is the main annual event of classical music in Latvia that goes so well with the image of Rīga as a city of inspiration. "Riga is a festival itself - it is an ongoing feast full of sounds, fragrances, flavours and inspiration. Everyone is welcome here; everyone has a chance to feel special - both the guests from faraway countries and the locals; both on the stage and as a part of audience.

"This is a joy we want to share with everybody," Guntars Ķirsis, Artistic Director of the Riga Festival and Director of VSIA Latvijas Koncerti.

The essential feature of the Riga Festival is the widest range of its musical repertoire in terms of historical periods, genres and schools - this is a top quality musical festivity without frontiers, for all the city locals, as well as all the guests and visitors.
