One month to go until Riga city festival

It's just one month until the Riga city festival, one of the highlights of the year.

If you will happen to be in the Latvian capital from August 12th to 14th you'll be able to enjoy an incredible range of sights and sounds, many of them free of charge.

This year's festival will have a cinematic theme according to the official Riga municipal web portal.

Free film screenings and music from movies will feature prominently while other attractions will include air displays and motorcycle drag races.

The final day of the festival will see the embankment of the River Daugava transformed into a 10,000 seater open air cinema.

On August 13 and 14 public transport throughout the city will be free of charge

We will have more information about the Riga city festival closer to the date when hopefully the usual English-language information about the event is available.

Unfortunately the official website of the 2016 festival is not yet live but the Riga city festival's Facebook page is HERE.
