The 11th edition of unique Baltic post-folk alternative festival "Mėnuo Juodaragis" is calling You again to the magic island of Zarasai lake, northeastern Lithuania. This year MJR will take place on August 22-24, as every year making nostalgic adieu to Summer and greeting new starlit Autumn. On three MJR 2008 stages we'll see many great music artists from Lithuania and European countries, presenting variety of styles.
During MJR holidays on a spectacular island the festival programme will also present exclussive lectures, tribal workshops, crafts, traditional rites, art exhibitions and projects, films, excursions, sport tournaments, folk dances and DJs, as well as nice dreams, pure nature, whispering trees, dancing fire and singing waters...
The main theme for MJR 2008 will be mythological beings "aitvarai" (brownie, also kite). So You'll be welcome to make and fly your kite as well. And historical dedication to the Lithuanian Resistence fight after WWII.
Mėnuo Juodaragis (Blackhorned Moon) is one of the most unique culture events in Baltic states. This independent three-days open air festival is dedicated to evoke contemporary Baltic culture, revive ancient traditions and present most interesting post-folk and alternative artists from various countries.
