History

Laima Rendezvous Jurmala is held for the first time in Jurmala’s great concert hall “Dzintari”. For the first time, we see the pop icon Laima Vaikule not only as jury member on some major music competition, but as a creator of a large international popular music festival, held in Jurmala. Its participants are latvian pop-stars, as well as legendary singers from Russia and other countries, such as Nani Bregvadze, Boris Moiseev, Verka Serdyuchka and Alexander Buynov. For the first time many unexpected vocal duets take place and become a famous feature of “Laima Rendezvous”. The first festival lasts for two days and has a great success.
