Kometa Fest

Kometa is an open-air culture and music festival that takes place on the island of Daugavgriva Fortress in Riga, Latvia on 31.07 – 2.08. With live music from various corners of the Earth, DJ sets, contemporary circus, cinema, workshops, lectures, exhibitions and performances, Kometa is a unique and vibrant three-day event that embraces diversity and leaves long-term traces in its participants, by inviting and encouraging to practice freedom to think, choose, connect, create and participate. Freedom from advertisements, slogans or hidden agendas. Freedom to transform. Kometa is a cosmic culture festival which shows that music, art and humans coexist in harmony with one another and Mother Earth.

On Sundays, the festival is traditionally open free of charge to all and in particular to the local communities, seniors and families with children.
