Press Conference of Laima Vaykule and Emin Agalarov on Summer Music Festivals
On 14 June, the press conference of Laima Vaykule and Emin Agalarov was held in TASS. It was dedicated to international summer music festivals Laima Rendezvous Jurmala, celebrated on 18–21 July in Jurmala, and ZHARA in Baku that will be taking place from 25–28 July at the Sea Breeze Resort.
'In our opinion, July is the best moment to hold a big music event, such as our festivals,' said the founder of the ZHARA festival Emin Agalarov. 'Every year we make sure the festivals take place one after another and do not overlap. However, we do not compete with each other. On the contrary, we work for the single beautiful cause of making a celebration of music for attendees and TV viewers. Many artists perform both at Laima Festival in Jurmala and our ZHARA Festival in Baku. It is a great opportunity for the performers and ourselves to bring amazing music to their fans in different countries.'
Laima Vaykule, as the initiator and founder of Laima Rendezvous Jurmala, explained the selection for the concert: 'The fifth festival will be particularly colourful and grandiose. Only the best of the best will go on stage, the most outstanding stars and discoveries of previous festivals, and of course, young heroes of the most popular music of today.'
Emin Agalarov confirmed four days of round-the-clock fun and activities await the guests at ZHARA: there will be concerts, celebrity runways, light shows and sunset discos. This year, the organisers promise to break the record and outdo last year's festival.
You can also witness the biggest music show of the year on TV: as per tradition, Channel One Russia will be broadcasting all the days of the festival.
