The fourth annual conversation festival, LAMPA, is taking place June 29 to 30 in Cēsis this year with more than 270 different events planned, organizers told the press.
In family-friendly LAMPA, politicians get roasted; discussions become heated; and people can spend time enjoying the picturesque castle park of Cēsis, an hour's drive away from Rīga. Entry is free.
LSM, Latvian Radio, and Latvian Television will also be represented in the festival. This year should be particularly interesting, with the upcoming parliamentary election turning LAMPA into a veritable political battleground.
