::: PROGRAMME :::

 

What lies beneath the MJR Mask? MUSIC will be thundering from three stages, presenting most fascinating projects from Lithuania and the other Baltic States and, quite probably, some bands from abroad.

This will be accompanied by a meticulously hand-picked programme of LECTURES and ANCIENT CRAFTS, tribal traditions, various creative workshops, sports competitions, most uncanny land art installations, a sprinkling of cinema, a lot of DANCING, general merrymaking and many more starry mysteries! Expect the unexpected - it will happen!

The event programme will be announced on first days of August.
The musical programme will remain unrevealed.

ATTENTION: This programme is still to be updated - You will get the final programme at the Gates.
