Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to see the comeback after two years of Latvian hip-hop artist Gacho with his amazing new show.

Pet Shop Boys with their classic hits like West End Girl, Always On My Mind, Domino Dancing will return to Latvia on their worldwide Electric Tour devoted to their brand new album. The most successful British duo continues to come up with vivid and authentic music and have promised a new single in April, as well as the most impressive show Liepāja has ever experienced.

Dons (Artūrs Šingirejs) is currently the most acknowledged Latvian soloist. At the beginning of the year, he celebrated the release of his album Varanasi with six sold-out solo concerts at Palladium Rīga stage. Currently, Dons is on tour throughout Latvia and has promised to bring exceptional performance to Liepāja.

Presently the most demanded British producer, songwriter and musician Naughty Boy (Shahid Khan), who became world-renowned with his catchy hit La La La, will perform at LMT Summer Sound with his live band.

The return after two years of hip-hop artist Gacho on LMT stage at the festival follows the release of his two singles from the forthcoming album Skills To Party/Mans festivāls. Gacho’s performance two years ago was the central event of the festival, but the comeback will hit harder than ever.

Latvian singer Jenny May is currently working on her new studio album, in which Latin rhythms will dominate. The first single from the album has already reached over 1 million views on YouTube.

Lithuanian band Golden Parazyth which started as a solo project, transformed into a duo, are currently the most popular music project in the country. Their taste of music is full of dark electronic harmonies, ambient and 8-bit music, as well as energetic rhythms and organic interplay of indie-rock-like vocals. They visited Latvia last year to perform as a warm-ups for the British duo Hurts concert at Arēna Rīga.
