The festival for the city heart

The unique city festival ”Midsummer Vilnius”, which brings the central Courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes to life every year in midsummer, has already established itself in the cultural life of the capital and has become an integral part of the summer city. Since 2016, the festival has been growing not only in size but with surprising new creative solutions also.

The festival’s outstanding features of openness to different performing arts genres and a search for original creative challenges have become one of its most anticipated highlights. Every year, the audience is surprised by musical projects in non-traditional formats that build bridges between classical and popular music genres. Andrius Mamontovas, performing together with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, has already appeared on this festival’s stage. The group “Skylė” organized an impressive performance with the choir “Ąžuoliukas” and others.

The festival program includes not only Lithuanian but also famous foreign artists. These include British singer Joss Stone, “The Tiger Lillies”, Sweden’s “Little Dragon”, and “Highly Sedated”, Armenian piano virtuoso Tigran Hamasyan and others. One of the evenings of the festival is always dedicated to opera under the stars. In the Courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes, the festival presented internationally acclaimed artists such as Asmik Grigorian, Charles Castronovo, Kostas Smoriginas, and other representatives of this genre.

Although we live in a time of change, what best defines the “Midsummer Vilnius” festival doesn’t change – in July, the audience is greeted by a special atmosphere, a unique space, and the joy of live art.
