There are some places in Estonia, which are worth suffering a hot, cramped car ride to reach. The picturesque Leigo Lake in the Otepaa highlands with its open-air Leigo Lake Music Festival is one of these places.
Since 1998, stages in the middle of Leigo Lake, surrounded by water and thousands of candles have been attracting world famous classical and contemporary groups and soloists. And when fans witness the audiovisual mystery that is the Leigo Lake festival with their own eyes, they return again and again. A beautiful natural venue, brilliant music and acoustics, wonderful outdoor lighting and fireworks, this is a festival that draws all kinds of people.
The festival, which takes from July 30 till August 13, will feature Gypsy Russian folk trio Loyko, Swiss flutist Philippe Emmanuel Haas, Estonian rockers No-Big-Silence, Norwegian jazz trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer and many other artists from all over the world.
Tickets are available at the gates and from every Piletilevi booth.
Tickets cost 120-220 kroons (8-15 euros) Children under 10 are free.
