Dear devotees!

Please note – the date and place of the Festival has changed – from 4 to 11 August. The Festival will be held on the shore of Bebrusai lake, in Molėtai district, village Kirneile, in the territories of recreation centre Ruta and SPA hotel Belvilis 4-5*.

The reason for the change – hotel complex Dubingiai was sold, and the new owner did not accept the signed contract and put forward a new conditions. Unfortunately, they were inadequate to the market price and our financial capacity, and after intensive negotiations it was decided to move the Festival to another location.

We understand that this causes a lot of inconvenience for those who have already planned holidays, so we sincerely apologize for the situation.

The new place is also very beautiful – pine forest and a wonderful lake. The good news is that accommodation prices will also be friendlier due to the simpler accommodation conditions, and for those who want more comfort, we can offer you accommodation in a SPA hotel and cottages Belvilis 4-5 *.

The new location of the Festival, the conditions and its surrounding nature for the festival organizers seemed even more in the spirit of devotion than before. Therefore we hope that we will all get even more deep spiritual experience and transcendental mellows 🙂

There is no need to register to the festival anew. Please visit the Festival website and familiarise yourself with the new accommodation types http://festivals.lt/en/summer-festival/registration/ . Then, please, reply to this email and let us know which accommodation option and conditions suit you best. The difference between the advance payment and the new price will be paid (or refunded) upon arrival at the Festival.

For those who cannot or do not want to participate in the Festival in a new place and with new conditions, we will return the transferred donation – please, email us regarding it on  vaishnava.summerfestival@gmail.com

Once again, we apologize and hope for your understanding.

On behalf of the Festival management team,

Your servant,
Nritya Gopal das
