The seventh festival "Zobens un Lemess" has been postponed to the year 2022.

There are not many of us, but all our own. We need all of you, we can't afford to split you.

Quality and togetherness are very important for us. The situation does not allow us to organize the festival in such format and quality that there is hope that a full-fledged event will succeed. * That is why we have decided to move the festival to next summer.

This was a very difficult decision, but we think it is the only right one.

Considering all current restrictions, this summer we could offer you only a pathetic parody of the festival, which would not bring joy to any of us.

We apologize to all who hoped, waited, supported. However, in our opinion, this is the only solution for the success of the seventh festival. We look forward to your understanding and support. Metal unites, folk strengthen!

We will meet in more favorable times for the festival, hopefully, next year, but still, this summer we have the opportunity to attend great festivals Kilkim Žaibu and Menuo Juodaragis in Lithuania, where according to Lithuanian rules everyone has the opportunity to be.

About the new date:

As we move the seventh festival “Zobens un Lemess” to 2022, we will announce the new date later this year (the legal regulation determines that this must be done within six months).

About the tickets:

For those who have purchased tickets, we will also inform you about the latest information by e-mail. The tickets you purchased for this year's festival will, of course, also be valid for the 2022 festival. When we announce the new date, you will receive an e-mail with all the information about the possibility to return tickets, if you do not like the new festival date.

*The regulations of the Cabinet of Ministers currently in force in Latvia prohibit the organization of a full-fledged festival. For example, one of the acceptable formats prohibits unvaccinated people with a negative test and children from attending the event, another, which allows a wider audience to enter, requires the audience to be in personalized seating at the event, limits the number of visitors (which is insufficient for the festival), time of the event and sets several other restrictions that a small concert organization cannot meet.
