The line-up of the main artists is also supplemented by British rock band Coasts and one of the currently most popular German DJs in Europe – Alle Farben.   For the first time the representative of Latvia in Eurovision – American-Latvian Laura Rizzotto – will perform on the Summer Sound Festival stage.


Local and Baltic music fans will be delighted by a wide line-up of artists from Latvia and Lithuania. Among them, the band Musiqq favoured by many, the fascinating Aija Andrejeva, the always energetic Labvēlīgais Tips, as well as Dzelzs Vilks, Pienvedēja Piedzīvojumi, Rīgas Modes, Igo, Justs, Sudden Lights, Marta Ritova, Astra The 22’s, Riga Reggae, a musician living in Lithuania Andis Grīva with the band Andis Grīva ir WWMM and the Lithuanian bands – Garbanotas Bosistas, Colours of Bubbles and Antikvariniai Kašpirovskio dantys.


This year Summer Sound Festival will offer a vast line-up of hip-hop music – local rap culture band Singapūras Satīns and rappers Ansis, Edavārdi and Fakts.


As usual, during both nights the festival dance floor will be taken care off by DJ Toms Grēviņš and the dance stage will be supplemented by the promising DJ Markee, who has just signed a contract with the prestigious Sony Music.

The artist line-up will be further supplemented as the Festival approaches.


“It is exciting to see how our festival gets more popular among visitors every year, growing by its quality and also its volume. At the same time, we manage to retain its financial affordability and interest to wide audiences. This year we are also working hard to create the content and are planning to expand the festival both beyond its space and time, delighting the citizens of Liepāja and its guests not only from all over Latvia, but also from neighbouring countries,” Festival Director Uldis Pabērzis, about the plans for Summer Sound 2018.


In 2018 the eighth Summer Sound Festival will take place and it has certainly become one of the most important summer music events in the Baltics. Thousands of visitors prove it, because each year they travel to the wonderful Liepaja beach to enjoy two days of musical fun and relaxation right on the seaside. Every year the festival features more than 50 artists, providing a diverse entertainment and activity programme.
