Its organisers strive (and rarely fail) to offer a music, cinematic, theatrical, and visual art events programme that promotes an understanding of the processes behind contemporary culture worldwide. The festival is unique, thanks to its experimental daring and resolve to present creative expression by top notch, recognised artists. A celebration of the arts throughout the whole month, which reaches its culmination in the open-air opera performances in Pils Parks (Castle Park).
Thanks to its reputation and fame, the festival is also attended by devotees from many foreign countries.
