Lelle Alternatiiv '09

Lelle Alternatiiv 2009 will take place between the 10th and 12th of July!!!

In the heart of Estonia lays a magical place called Lelle. For the past five years it has hosted one of the most alternative festivals ever heard from this side of the Baltic Sea. Based on the enthusiasm of a few local volunteers the festival has grown to be the highlight of the music year for many people. It is all a non-profit rock/punk/metal event designed to bring together both young and old musicians and spectators to enjoy good music in a stress-free summer breeze on the beautiful Imsi hill- and lakeside.

Last year a crowd of two thousand people took part in Lelle Alternatiiv 2008. It featured 60 bands from five countries playing non-stop music on two stages for 32 consecutive hours.

This year Lelle Alternatiiv will last for three days. In the evening of Friday the 10th of July there will be a warm-up party in the local culture house where about 10 bands get the chance to show their might. On the 11th of July will be a twelve hour concert on two stages in the main area of the festival – Imsi hill- and lakeside. About 30 bands will perform. The third day, Sunday the 12th, will host the afterburner held again in the local culture house with about 10 bands.

So traveller, beware! This just might be THE EVENT of the summer!
