While Lithuania is coping quite well with new cases of the virus, restrictions for event organizers are slowly being eased. Since July 1, outdoor events can welcome as many as 1000 attendees, and that’s pretty much enough for cozy live music concerts scattered around parks, open-air cafes and terraces of our city this July. Here’s what the Kaunas calendar has to offer, including cumbia, classical music, urban sounds and indie rock! Ticket information can be found by clicking the linked names and venues.

Live: Planeta Polar
Kaunas Cultural Centre (terrace), Vytauto pr. 79

Parranda Polar was a band that brought cumbia rhythms from tropical Colombia to arctic Lithuania. Planeta Polar is pretty much the same people, but it’s “what they would like to be” musically. Even more emotions involved!

Live: Free Finga

Free Finga is a producer and songwriter from Vilnius. Also, a former child pop star, who writes songs to deal with personal dramas. The concert will be a memorable one, for sure – imagine contemporary urban rhythms surrounded by thousands of live plants and flowers.

Nemunas island

“Pakrantė” is an open-air event, music and street food space next to Žalgirio arena – and ran by its devoted staff. “Pakrantė” offers concerts by some of the biggest music acts in our country. Lithuania’s iconic intellectual pop singer Jurga has just released her eponymous album – eight in her career, it’s also one of the most open and intimate ones. Jurga is bringing her new programme to Kaunas and will definitely add some of her best-known ballads.

“Pakrantė LIVE”: Colours of Bubbles
Nemunas island

Colours of Bubbles represent the most recent generation of guitar bands that Šiauliai, a Northern Lithuanian city has always been famous for. This time, however, it’s not funk-infused postpunk, Britpop or electro-rock, but a rather fresh indie rock that combines alternative country influences and modern rock’n’roll drive. Staying true to their musical roots, Colours of Bubbles write all of their songs in English.
