The performing artists for music festival Lelle Alternatiiv '10, held from the 9th to 11th July, are now made clear. 100 artists will take part in the alternative music happening in Rapla County, Estonia.

One of this summers largest and most unique open-air festivals in Estonia - Lelle Alternatiiv - will take place on a much grander scale than ever before. From the 9th until the 11th of July 100 artists will gladden the audience in Lelle. “Both the artists and audience alike are fans and representatives of the most different musical styles. People from all over Estonia and abroad have made a habit of gathering to Lelle for this one of a kind event” says Vallo Hansen, the main organizer. “Lelle Alternatiiv is known for it’s “out of the box” approach and for realizing the most unbelievable goals successfully. For example two years ago we had 64 bands playing non-stop for 32 consecutive hours. This year’s conception has an even greater reach” Hansen promises.

250 artists expressed a wish to play at the festival. From these 100 were selected by the audience and organizers. Among many others also 7 Latvian (Cacophonics, THUrsday 12th, All Day Long, Dandelion Wine, Sun Quay, Das Sonntags Legion and Age of Stones), 7 Finnish (Folke Westside, Fumble, Clarkkent, Damian Cullen Band, Blueintheface, Radiowives and Sisare) and 4 Swedish (Riddarna, Tor-Peders Kapell, Mad Lee Riot and Fatal if Swallowed) are present.

Performes will present their arts on four full scale concert stages. In addition a so called „Morning Club“ is in work joining the aspects of a night club and an acoustic show.
