Yaga Gathering invites to dive into colorful summer dream together with many artists from around the globe. Art and alternative lifestyle festival will take place from 31 July till 4 August in a wonderful lakeside location in Lithuania.

The festival site will be divided into five thematic areas: main and chill-out stages, healing and workshop areas and a new one – presentation area. This year the organizers are introducing one more novelty – a circus stage.

“Over the years the festival featured performances of stilt walkers, jugglers and fakirs. This year we decided to extend the idea and make an individual area for this type of art. We are not planning something global, but rather planting a seed of a separate circus stage,” said Mantas Markevicius, a prominent contemporary theater activist and the organizer of this stage.

A presentation tent will feature speakers from different fields presenting their contemporary ideas and thoughts in a short and inspiring manner. Every speaker will be given 15 minutes.

The festival already known for it's visuals, colorful decorations and laser shows will present an open air exhibitions of fine artists. Alexander Rodin from Belarus and Otto Rapp from Austria will exhibit the reproductions of their works.

“We are proud of being able to invite these artists to the festival and show their works,” said the organizer.

This year‘s festival's programme is very diverse. More than 100 performers from more than 20 countries will appear on all stages and corners of the event.

“Yaga Gathering” will take place from 31 July till 4 August at Ezeraicio forest, Varena district. Advance tickets are already available on the festival‘s web site.
