The Willkommen Collective members have released two studio albums and have performed with the likes of Laura Marling, Mumford And Sons and The Leisure Society.

In their own words, Frankie Animal are as luscious as a freshly pressed mojito on a Friday night, mesmerizing the audiences with their powerful, yet intimate and delicate presence. During their two-year career span, the quartet have released an EP, played in Estonia’s most noteworthy venues and received highly favourable reviews from local critics, most of whom highlighted the impressive capabilities of vocalist Marie Vaigla, comparing her singing mannerism to that of Norah Jones.

Combining the elements of funk and rock, Freaks On Floor are one of today’s most interesting Lithuanian bands. During their five year run, Freaks On Floor have released two studio albums and won almost all local music awards in the most diverse categories – from best new band, to best Lithuanian rock band of 2011 and 2012.

The Russian-singing Belorussian band Super Besse convert their end-of-seventies musical heritage into modernized sounds, offering listeners an alluring mix of coldwave and post-punk.

The I Love You stage has always possessed a certain aura, giving visitors the feeling that the bands are playing especially for each one of them, rather than for the hundreds of spectators. The stage programme is supplemented by Big Wave Riders, Junk Riot, Get Your Gun, Stefan Rausch, Garbanotas Bosista, Super Besse, Vincent Long, The Sinclair Sinclair and Frankie Animal. As previously announced, the stage will also feature Carnival Youth, Laika Suns, Das Sonntags Legion, The Citizens, Nē, Pyro Trees, Martas Asinis and Starmetis.
