performing in MJR festival

In the night of 23 to 24 of August, (about 1.30 am) will be performing with my project Bruzgynai in one of the best Lithuanian open-air festivals - Mėnuo Juodaragis. See the information below.
Will be good time there, as always, so see you! 

Mėnuo Juodaragis XVI - great festival in wild Lithuania
Unique festival of independent post-folk, alternative music and contemporary Baltic culture - "Mėnuo Juodaragis" - is summoning all tribes to fairy Zarasas lake island, North-Eastern Lithuania, where it will traditionally celebrate the last days of Summer - August 23-25, 2013. One of the most unique events in Europe is joining ancient heritage with living art of today, presenting magic music and extraordinary cultural programme.

Three MJR open air stages are ready to host more than 50 groups and projects of various origins - from authentic folklore to neofolk, from darkwave to avantgarde, from electronic to rock and metal. MJR line-up includes too many great bands to miss this - ROME (Luxembourg), CHANGES (USA), FIRE+ICE (UK), FOLKNERY (Ukraine), OTAVA YO (Russia), SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY (Czech) as well as the very best original collectives from Baltic homeland - Latvia and Lithuania!

The main theme for MJR XVI is Latvian ethnic culture and our Baltic brotherhood. This means the Zarasas island (which is only 3 km from Latvian border!) would be invaded by numerous legendary groups from Latvia - ILGI, AULI, SKYFORGER, VILKI, GRODI, DZELZS VILKS, and many of their countrymen. While Lithuanian side will present Aistė Smilgevičiūtė & SKYLĖ, PIEVOS, SPANXTI, DONIS, OBTEST, VILKDUJA, GIRNŲ GIESMĖS and flock of other original artists.

Alongside with live music "Mėnuo Juodaragis" is presenting solid selection of lectures, ancient crafts, warrior shows and archery, tribal workshops, traditional rites, art exhibitions, film screenings, excursions, sports tournaments, dance parties, kids entertainment, various creative, ecologic projects, etc. Not to forget wondrous friendly atmosphere, pleasing meadows, groves, fires, wooded camping site, refreshing clear waters of Zarasas lake... and Juodaragis craft beer, made specially for this fest!

It's time for brothers to meet! Let's do it!


The 3-day MJR ticket price 30-35 Eur. Presale tickets are available from "Mėnuo Juodaragis" website with payment through Paypal.
