The XXV Nationwide Latvian Song and XV Dance Celebration in year 2013 will take place in Riga from June 30 till July 7.

 

To take part in the Celebration there are 1600 collectives and artistic groups preparing, which includes about 40 000 participants from Latvia and other countries. The Celebration week is the whole nation embracing ritual, fostering the Latvian cultural self-awareness and strengthening the Latvian identity that roots in culture-based creativity.

It is a creativity celebration, a hymn to genuine values when the tremendous input during five years in enriching the human soul becomes visible; it is a week when everyday routine over the years acquires sense, when the souls of singers, dancers, brass band players, craftsmen lift to light that reflects in their performance, and when we are proud and full of respect for ourselves, the nation, the country and the state.
