The Latvian Song and Dance Festival is held every five years in Rīga. This summer Iļģi will take part in these Festival events: 

June 30th, 4 p.m., Parade of National Costumes at the International Exhibition Center on Ķīpsala. The Parade's new director, Inga Tropa, brings fresh ideas to this year's event. Working with her has been very interesting.

July 2nd, 8 p.m., Concert of Folk Music "Raksti." Directed by Raimonds Tiguls, this concert will feature many of Latvia's best-known folk artists. 

July 6th, Folklore Day. Festivities in the city center and at the Open Air Ethnographic Museum. Ilga Reizniece will lead dancing in a very special place - at the Freedom Monument from 6 to 8 p.m. Live music by Iļģi and others.

Iļģi's music is part of the Grand Dance Concert repertoire.

Ilga Reizniece's students, the folklore group "Vārpa", will be at the child and youth folklore group concert "Blanket of Stars" on June 30th at 2 p.m.
