Rīga residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy local and international artists' projects, with highlights including a "silent disco" at the Latvian National Library, an "art tram" that will connect a number of event venues, and the acclaimed "Sound Forest" contemporary noise event.
All White Night events can be attended free of charge and are hosted in different parts of the city. The White Night tradition was started in 2002 in Paris and it spread to Brussels, Rome and Madrid, with Rīga as one of the early adopters, too. Later on, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Porto and Valetta joined the White Night movement in Europe, while Toronto, Tokyo, Montreal and other cities joined it globally.
The full program is available at: www.baltanakts.lv and an information stand will be located on the night next to the landmark Laima clock in the city center. You can also check out the following official social media accounts.
