The festival was created to promote the development of the Fortress of Daugavgrīva, as a cultural site, and will be taking place for the fifth year this weekend.
The unique Fortress of Daugavgrīva on the left coast of the River Daugava is the largest fortress from the 17th century in Latvia. Some of the barracks and warehouse buildings, as well as the tower, are still in place.
The “Komēta” festival itself will take place over the last weekend of July, but until August 15 it will host events every weekend.
Nearly 21 hectares in the vast area could also accommodate nearly 55 thousand visitors. However, festival organizers will limit visitor numbers and promise to create a small Utopian country where people enjoy art and music in nature.
“We're a little festival and we're not planning more, and we're going to limit people. There will be fewer than a thousand visitors. There will also be signs everywhere, because indeed, especially after the Tērbatas Street precedent,” organizers said.
The events of the “Komēta” festival at the Fortress of Daugavgrīva will invite visitors from July 25 to August 15 every weekend.
