Lelle Alternatiiv 2011 is cancelled

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of Lelle Alternatiiv 2011 which was supposed to take place on 8th – 10th of July. While just recently we were certain the festival will happen, now we must confess to the opposite.
For years the event has been organized with the help of various foundations and supporters. This year this resources was not enough to host the Alternatiiv in it’s known quality. The organizers of the festival were forced to decide to either lower the standards significantly or cancel the whole thing. We chose to cancel.
Still, it does not mean that Lelle Alternatiiv is gone for good. So keep an eye out for 2012.    
The bands that registered on our website will remain there to be listened along with the artists from 2010. So through our home page you will still be able to get some of that Alternative feel.
The team thanks all the registered artists, volunteers and partners.
Farewell for now!

During the span of the Lelle Alternatiiv festivals over two hundred bands from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden have performed there. Also over 200 volunteers have lent a hand in making the events happen.
Lelle Alternatiiv began in 2004 when a group of young lads called KukeProtest were looking for a gig. In the absence of one, they made their own festival.

Lelle Alternatiiv comes again

“The report of my death was an exaggeration” announces Lelle Alternatiiv which will take place in mid-summer, 8th-10th of July 2011, in Lelle, Estonia.

Dozens of acts from here and abroad will rock the stages of the Imsi Hill- and Lake side for the eight time.

Artist registration for the flagship festival of the Estonian alternative music scene begun on Monday the 7th of March. Be you a lighthearted songbird or a tough-minded hard rocker – our gates are open. Come and register yourself on our website www.lellealternatiiv.ee. Furthermore we are inviting people from other genres also – poets of the spoken word, artists of the visual realm – you are welcome!

The registration of acts will be open until the 8th of May during which the users of our website can rate these artists. The most fascinating and popular ones will eventually receive an invite to perform at the festival.

All the past seven Lelle Alternatiivs have been made possible thanks to the significant contribution of our volunteers. Since it is a non-profit event we will need your help once more to make this new year be another success. To give us a hand we first ask you to register at our website where you can also read more about the specifics of being a volunteer.

Lelle Alternatiiv begun in 2004 when a group of young punks from Lelle called KukeProtest were looking for a gig. In the absence of one they decided on making their own festival. Over the years it has grown beyond all expectation and found an immovable place in the summer plans of music lovers.
