After the Baltic Pride 2016 March for Equality, which took place on Gediminas Avenue on June 18th, all LGBT* community members and friends were invited to the art factory LOFTAS for a delightful Baltic Pride Park Concert.
Baltic Pride Park Concert featured the legendary winner of the Eurovision Song Contest Dana International, who is well known for her world-famous hits “Diva” and “Ding Dong”. She was joined by the Lithuanian representative to this year’s Eurovision Donny Montell, whose charm and talent impress not only the girls’ hearts. The outline of the concert culminated with the iconic DJ Leomeo from France, who spins his thrilling sets of music on the dance floors across the globe. Baltic Pride Park Concert also featured the performer from Ukraine Maria Sam Katseva, the drag queen from France LaDiva Live, Lithuanian singer Sasha Song and the winner of the Lithuanian Music Academy Ruslanas Kirilkinas.
Baltic Pride Park Concert was not only an entertainment event, but also a cultural space. During the event the participants were invited to participate in the design fare of the most talented Lithuanian designers, craftsmen and architects of style and other pretty stuff, to purchase goods from the official #BalticPride store, check the status in the tent of the association “Demetra” and to taste some fabulous snacks from food vending trucks. And the most important thing is that loads of smiley faces were present in the Baltic Pride Park Concert! BALTIC PRIDE IS OUR PRIDE!
