Early music festival VIVAT CURLANDIA! Music and art festival of the time of Duke Kettler of Kurzeme and Zemgale in Bauska with concerts of foreign and domestic early music in Bauska Palace, Bauska St.Gara's Church, Bauska Culture Center.


The festival has been known by this name since 2016, when the spirit of the ancient music festivals, which first settled here 30 years ago, returned to the Bauska Palace after the ambitious restoration works. At that time, in 1993, it was the 550th year since the castle of the Livonian Order in Bauska was first mentioned in written sources. The staff of the museum wanted to celebrate this anniversary with ancient music concerts in the Bauska Palace, and with this idea they approached the Ancient Music Center in Riga, which at that time was headed by Dr. Art. Boriss Avramecs and Solvita Sejane. It was the beginning of the first early music festival not only in Bauska, but also in Latvia. Since then, the festival has become a tradition.

The festival has been organized for the eighth year by Early music in Latvia - Riga Ancient Music Center in cooperation with the municipality of Bauska region.
