Inspired by the tradition started last summer, this year the world music festival “PORTA” will take place under open skies - on the shore of Lake Jugla, in a cozy atmosphere, where the musical sounds coming from the stage will be complemented by the nature ones.
On August 20th, 2022, the Finnish duo Wimme & Rinne will take the stage at the Latvian Ethnographic Open-Air Museum. Their music in an unusual yet brilliant way will combine sounds of the Sami yoiking style with electronic and experimental jazz. In turn, six men from the Franco-Italian group Lalala Napoli will enable to experience both the rhythms of tarantella and spiritual music stories, with unstoppable energy and musical generosity pulling the audience into a celebration full of friendship and life. Also Israeli musicians Yemen Blues promise to introduce with the cultural music of the new era, which combines Yemeni, West African, blues, funk and jazz rhythms, but the vocals are reminiscent of ancient Arabic songs.
The first festival tickets are sold for 35 euros until May 20th, 40 euros till June 20th, 45 euros till July 20th, and 50 euros until the day of the festival August 20th.
Admission to the festival for children and young people from 13 to 18 years of age is 20 euros, but from 7 to 12 years of age - 5 euros. Admission is free for children up to 7 years old.
Tickets purchased to last fall's concerts for Porta 2021 are valid for this summer's festival!
