In the beginning of May all Lithuanian people are waiting for one of the most interesting days of the year. That day is called “Street Musicians Day”. Thousands of people go out to the streets to play or listen live music.
“Street Musicians Day” has a mission to unite all people who speak the world’s most universal language – the language of music. This is the day when a lot of professional and amateur musicians go out onto the streets, yards, parks and squares of Vilnius centre.
I love this day because none of the musicians want to earn money that day, they come to the streets because they just love music and want to share it with others. Musicians play rock, classics, jazz, folklore, beat African rhythms and other styles of music. So, on “Street Musicians Day” I always find a lot of good and various music.
I am very happy because Lithuania has an exclusive musician, actor and photographer Andrius Mamontovas, who founded “Street Musicians Day” in 2007. He invites all music loving people to share and to listen a lot of live sounds.
“Street Musicians Day” started in Vilnius, but now this festival is running in different Lithuanian regions and abroad. I hope that “Street Musician Day” will become a worldwide music festival.
