:::: MĖNUO JUODARAGIS XVI ::::

The XVI edition of Mėnuo Juodaragis is blowing horns again, summoning to the burning altar under Great Oak on Zarasai Lake island, Northern Lithuania. Traditionally MJR will celebrate the last days of Summer – August 23–25, 2013. And this year the Festival will be very Baltic in its essence, sharing ancient mythologies, history and most original contemporary arts. Three days and nights of spellbinding neo-folk, post-folk, ethnic and alternative music, ancient crafts, lectures, films, eco-art and lots of friendly partying – it's Your best chance to know what Baltic really means! Be welcome!

This year, the theme of the Festival is dedicated to our Baltic brothers Latvians – on the Lithuanian-Latvian border we call on both nations to gather in an open-air feast to explore unique music, arts, mythologies, history and many other similarities and differences between the Lithuanian and Latvian nations. Mėnuo Juodaragis is eager to see the most original and famous bands from Latvia, covering various music scenes, as well as craftsmen, lecturers, sorcerers and all enthusiasts of ancient culture. MJR stages will also host great acts from the UK, Luxembourg, the USA, Czech Republic, the Ukraine, Russia, etc. and best collectives from Lithuania of course!

Stage performances will of course be the key element of the MJR XVI programme – 3 music stages and 4 other different areas will be dedicated to music this year!
