Spaudos pranešimas:

"Mėnuo Juodaragis" (“Blackhorned Moon”) – one of the most unique alternative culture events in Baltic States celebrates its 10 th anniversary and will take place on August 24-26, 2007. This three days open-air festival is dedicated to evoke contemporary Baltic culture, revive ancient traditions and present most interesting post-folk and alternative artists from various European lands. This year the festival will take place in a very special place – a green big magic island in Zarasai lake near sleepy Zarasai town in Lithuania – 160 km from the capital Vilnius - North-Eastern direction.

As always, the festival will bring colourful and wide music programme, where various music genres are presented - authentic folk music, contemporary post-folklore, electronic, rock, folk metal, experimental, ambient, industrial, neo-classical and other modern art forms – during these three days everyone, who is interested in profound music, will find his/her personal favourites. The wide line-up this year will include ALLERSEELEN (Austria), SIEBEN (UK), MOON FAR AWAY (Russia), SVARROGH (Bulgaria), THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT (Hungary), OSIMIRA (Belarus), PRAGNAVIT (Belarus), VILKI (Latvia), DONIS (Lt), LAUXNA LAUKSNA (Lt), ATALYJA (Lt), PIEVOS (Lt), GIRNŲ GIESMĖS (Lt), ŽALVARINIS (Lt), ANDAJA (Lt), KŪLGRINDA (Lt) and many others. The concerts will be held on two scenes, and the action will last all night long – the concerts will be changed by DJ’s parties, and those seeking for more romantic time will be able to join traditional folk dances by fireplaces. As always, spontaneous happenings and mysteries tend to appear during the festivitiesl.

The music programme is only one side of this festival – you will be able to see films, exhibitions, listen to lectures, take place at workshops or archaic rituals at craftsmen yard, drink beer at outdoor caffe-bars, play at a football tournament, and for the kids a nice kindergarten will be made. And if you have a wish to explore surrounding area, you can easily go by walk to a quiet, romantic town of Zarasai, or just have a very good swim in one of the seven! crystal clear lakes, surrounding the area.

The atmosphere of MJR is very friendly and relaxing, so it’s not strange that people from many countries come to join this event and to have a very good time and bring back deep memories. Not a strange thing that the last edition of the festival has been granted as the Best Alternative Event award in Lithuania.

There will be a special camping territory to build tents and parking place for cars, and the tickets for all three days cost 70 Lt (20 euro). Order the tickets - [tickets].

Join the dance at the Pagan heart of Europe, on the edge of the world.
Enjoy Nature and Art in pure forms. Unite Past and Future - Here and Now!
