Kilkim Žaibu XX

Friday -
Lūksto Ežeras
Varniai / Lithuania

The fortress of Lithuanian metal is preparing for its 20th anniversary!

The dark arts cult, Thunder festival, Summer solstice, with these and many more hidden meanings under its name, the oldest metal festival in Lithuania will take you to a mystical parallel universe where for three days and for three nights the thunder strikes, where surrounded by bonfires the most wild festivities doesn’t come to an end and where you hear the most powerful music of all times.

KILKIM ŽAIBU XX festival will be held for 3 days and 3 nights on June 21-23, 2019 on the beloved lake Lūkstas coast in Varniai. By choosing the shortest nights of the summertime, the eclectic culture festival will celebrate the Summer solstice in its own manner. Our Festival becomes a trip to the parallel world where there’s no need to look for rules or limitations. It’s quite possible that only on our stages you can see representatives of archaic folk and extreme music as well as medieval warriors mingling in the new age subculture crowd.
