Graceful circus artists who overcome the limits of gravity and make one look at the abilities of a human with different eyes. The most powerful comics that make one laugh to tears.

Air acrobats and fire artists, jugglery and manipulations with various objects, artists who seamlessly turn into animals... Circus artists from several countries will show their skills and perform master classes on the Nature Stage. The miracles of dance will be revealed in Kristīne Vismane's dance show Catch Me and the I-Dance dance classes, inter alia daily morning yoga on the beach.

Several improvisation theatre collectives and individual comics with already popular stand-up shows will improvise, stir laughter, and romp about. ImproZoo, Prieka Ministrija, Artišoks and the Rīga Improvisation Theatre will perform crazy, laughter provoking shows, and it is highly possible that also the audience will be involved in them. Comedians from Comedy Latvia and Comedy Estonia will offer one-man stand-ups.

The musical entertainment will be taken care of by already well-known musicians and also musicians that are in their early career stage. As announced before, an exclusive piano concert, with the accompaniment of the pine trees and the sea, will be performed by director Vladislavs Nastaševs. Edgars Eihmanis and Edgars Rubenis from the band Mona de Bo, together with jazz pianist Rūdolfs Macats, will create the atmosphere for the film of 1913 Where is the Justice?
