Born in 2003, baptized by maestro Vytautas Kernagis, raised in a big bards family, attracted to Lithuania lots of performers from abroad, international singers-songwriters festival “This is Me” today celebrates its 11th birthday. Yes, it is the 11th autumn, when in all Lithuania poems speak, poetry turns into notes, when like-minded people not only from Lithuania but also from other countries gather around cozy fireplace, in which poems flame and which warms frozen souls. It is been eleven years since we live, change and grow. It is been eleven years with poetry. This year the schedule of the festival is much more colourful: we will swing and dance in the „disco“ held by Andrius Kulikauskas, we will meet new singers that have not been in Lithuania before, we will come to your town with a „Bards’ truck” and we will say good bye to the festival not only in Vilnius, but in Kaunas too. As always, this year cannot be imagined without our late-night concert in which young artists perform their songs. Over the years these concerts became more and more popular: during the first festival the late-night concert was twenty minutes late because there were no audience. This year we guarantee: you will not find any free seat.
