Just a Week Left till the Greatest Lithuanian Festival in Zarasai – GALAPAGAI / ROCK NIGHTS
One of the biggest music and entertainment festivals in Lithuania
GALAPAGAI / ROCK NIGHTS starts the countdown before opening its 10th festival edition this year. On the 3rd and 4th August, an island in Zarasai will be crowded with the admirers of quality music and entertainment from all over Baltics.
“We are also looking forward to meeting guests from Latvia in Zarasai – this is why for the 10th anniversary year of the festival the inhabitants of Daugavpils have an exclusive opportunity to purchase festival tickets at an exceptional price – only Ls 13 for two days and two nights. We are expecting also families with children, as GALAPAGAI / ROCK NIGHTS – it is not just about music. In its nature, the festival encompasses entertainment and leisure activities for the whole family in one of the most beautiful places of Lithuania. Festival guests are invited to enjoy a lot of different water sports and other activities. One may play poker, attend different workshops, climb the rocks, try out extreme sports, stay at the outdoor library, etc.”, says festival producer Algirdas Barniskis-Bleka.
According to A. Barniskis-Bleka, GALAPAGAI / ROCK NIGHTS has the biggest headliner ever this year. It is the electronic music production duo “Chase & Status” from Great Britain. “Chase & Status” became one of the biggest selling artists in the UK in 2011 selling over 1 million singles in the UK alone. The Prodigy, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna admit they are big fans of “Chase & Status”.
““Chase & Status” are really big now; they have won a lot of awards and gained international acclaim. Only once they have bowed down this year. They lost the best British band award to Coldplay during Brit Awards”, – smiles A. Barniskis-Bleka.
GALAPAGAI / ROCK NIGHTS will take over 4 stages. “Chase & Status” is performing on the main stage at the festival opening night. Here we will see also the industrial metal band “Oomph” from Germany, and different Lithuanian hip hop and rock stars will be playing there, as well.
