Liepaja has a long history of summer festivals and this year is no exception. SUMMER SOUND of 2012 will be a two-day event with a wide variety of musical genres – rock, hip hop, electronica, ambient, pop and more.
Five stages will be located in the beach and park.
Five stages for five themes – the defining element of the festival sitting well not only with ‘party hard’ youngsters, but also families with children and middle-aged people.
It will also be a great chance to see legends, as well as rising stars, performing. Also, the already shining stars from Latvia and Baltic states, as well as new and exciting acts will perform.
The organizers of the festival haven’t revealed everything yet, as there will be surprises. However, the intention is to be an alternative option for happy people to have a good time and a lot of fun, rather than being the biggest or the loudest festival ever made.
Sure enough, the best part will be the music, but not only music. All kinds of fun stuff for kids or adults, who simply want to take a break from all the great music surrounding them. More about planned activities – closer to festival.
Festival location is Liepaja beach and park at the end of Kurmajas Prospekts, one of central streets of Liepaja.
The gates are opened on Friday, July 6 at 17:00 and will close on Sunday, July 8, at 06:00
