- When is the next Song and Dance Festival in Latvia? We're never 100 percent sure until we start seeing some hard evidence in the press or on the Web. The next festival is scheduled for summer 2008, but information on actual dates has not yet been released. On the official Web site it's interesting to follow all the preparation and competitions to determine the theme, who'll participate and the repertoire. Many aspects of this grand event are subject to serious scrutiny many months beforehand. Just look at all the events scheduled for 2006 around Latvia -- and that's two years before the big event. Having dug into this site we could be convinced that cultural life in Latvia is marked in terms of the time passed between song festivals! EN LV (Reviewed February 2006)

The accordion is, without a doubt, a very popular instrument in Latvia. An essential aspect of most every countryside šlāger ensemble, the quaint sound made by air pushed through the instrument brings forth thoughts of evenings in French cafes or German beer gardens. Unfortunately, some might not consider the ‘accordion’ a serious instrument – relegated to being played by buskers on street corners.

Perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the closing concert of the 2013 Latvian Song Festival was the song “Dvēseles dziesma”.
