After midnight, open-air party played by band “Dakota” will take place. The schlager music festival will have several surprises that are not revealed at the moment.

 “I am truly glad that schlager music is returning to Ventspils, it had its place in the diverse offer of Ventspils city. Thinking about cultural politics in the city, we respect different tastes in music for different target audiences. We kindly welcome popular artists and every event visitor as well. Have a pleasant rest in Ventspils!” the mayor of the city Aivars Lembergs is pleased with the schlager music festival happening in Ventspils.

“In my childhood, there was no greater joy than listening to songs on a record player and humming along. Brothers Laivinieki, songs from theatre performances, something from foreign repertoire as well. But what makes music popular with people? In my opinion, melody, simplicity based on popular songs and folklore, catchy chorus that stays in memory and in heart. Lyrics – themes known to all. And, of course, the singer's personality, which allows the story told in the song to become intriguing. Viewers and listeners love the artists who answer them with the same. We invite you to such a festival – “On the Wave of Songs” – on July 6 in Renka Garden. Where better to indulge in songs, dances and togetherness, if not in the middle of the summer in a city by the sea? And if I can meet you with my dear colleague, whom I do not see very often – Ģirts Ķesteris? We invite you to a hearty gathering and an unforgettable adventure!” says Marija Bērziņa.

  Wheras Marija’s colleague, Dailes Theatre actor Ģirts Ķesteris reminds us that this will be a wonderful opportunity to combine the fun with the useful, enjoying the weekend in Ventspils, “Concert and open-air party in Renka Garden, the sea, the sun, leisure and entertainment opportunities offered by Ventspils city.
