One of the most prestigious pop music competitions of up and coming artists in the post-Soviet area is held in the Latvia coastal resort city of Jurmala each summer. The "New Wave" competition gathers over a dozen young musicians from around the world, who compete with one another on the stage to win first prize.
Thanks to the huge interest the Russian media has in the competition, the "New Wave" festival is where the elite of the post-Soviet entertainment scene and high society gather for one week to mingle in the beautiful Latvian resort city.
This year’s festival takes place from July 26 to 31.
