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!

Important information!

Festival area and the encampment will be opened on friday, 4th July, at 14:00 and closed on sunday, July 6th, at 14:00. The ticket for two days is only 100 EEK. It includes 60 bands during 32 hours, parking and tenting.

One of the important points in house rules (link) is that this year it is not permitted to bring your your own alcohol to the festival area. On the other hand, 0,5 L of light alcohol costs only 16 EEK on spot. Like-wisely the prices of food are cheap.

This year its possible to refresh yourself besides bathing in the lake with enjoyable sauna that is opened for all the festival visitors for free.

Thanks to StriimiPuhvet and Levira will be Lelle Alternatiiv '08 live in internet (link).

121 bands have applied to Lelle Alternatiiv

Two stages and two days with 60 live bands and 32 hours of nonstop music. This year's Lelle Alternatiiv will be held on the 4th and 5th of July in the wilderness of Rapla County in Central Estonia.

During the last 3 months a total of 121 bands from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Finland have applied for the festival. The lineup of 60 bands will be chosen soon and also you can influence the final selection! Log on to www.lellealternatiiv.ee and vote for your favorites during the next 3 weeks.

Lelle Alternatiiv was born out of the first experiments in music of a few local boys from Lelle. Unfortunately their band, the KukeProtest, had hard times finding gigs and so they decided to organize a concert of their own. The first festival featured 7 bands and was held in Lelle Cultural Center in 2004.
