KILKIM ŽAIBU Festival Relocates to Ukmergė!

KILKIM ŽAIBU XXII festival will take place on 23-25 June 2022 in the territory of Antanas Smetona Manor Museum in Ukmergė district. This decision is quite unexpected for us too. The choice of this location that is quite unusual for a heavy music event was fostered by a very convenient geographic location – nearly in the middle of Lithuania. Welcomed by very friendly representatives of Ukmergė District Municipality, we decided to cooperate. The location, offered for the event – the homeland of the well-known historical figure Antanas Smetona – opened our yes. It inspired us to focus more attention on this period of Lithuania’s history. Although some of the event’s programme will be related to celebrating the Summer Solstice, it will also include cultural, historical and folk elements of the Interwar and post-war times in Lithuania and the neighbouring countries. The programme will also include music, folk and living history clubs that revolve around this period.

Please note that this will be a full-fledged event, taking place, as always, three days and three nights. The manor park, located on the shore of the beautiful Lake Lėnas, has plenty of place for everyone. The territory of the event will be more spacious than we’re used to in Varniai, which will make parking and camping even more comfortable. The museum of the manor will welcome all interested for lectures and tours. The beaches of the lake will refresh you on a hot summer day, while all sauna fans will be able to check out the sauna traditions, passed down by the President himself. The hungry will definitely appreciated the tempting culinary heritage of the time.

The first bands will be announced as soon as the first 300 tickets €50 each land safely in the pockets of the festival’s most dedicated fans.
