The bands are booked (see Artist Profiles), the Program is ready and we’re putting the finishing touches to the stages and venues around the Fontaine Rock Festival 2015. The Gypsy Camp and Acropolis venues have been revamped and Fontaine Palace remains one of the best clubs to catch some music in. Here’s around up of other activities and useful information concerning upcoming weekend.
All the indications are that it will be hot, hot, hot and for now, we have absolutely no forecast rain for the 2 days. We haven’t always been the luckiest with the weather so let’s go ahead and say the 10 year anniversary is going to be a beauty!
The Village will be situated on Friča Brīvzemnieka Street just behind the Gypsy Camp which runs from Fontaine Royal Hotel where you’ll find both the FireBar & House Of Food restaurant. In The Village, you’ll find various stalls and activities available throughout the festival. We’ll have the Official Festival Merchandise Shop where you’ll be able to buy your festival T-shirts, the super designs of Tarantula Shop will have their own stall, our Art Tent will make it’s usual appearence and the Fobo Foto Booth will be there courtesy of Jameson.
As mentioned a couple of days ago, the Baltic Catapult will be with us again this year. You’ll find it situated on the promenade, right outside Fontaine Royal Hotel. We expect it to be running throughout the weekend and it will be manned by the excellent Catapult staff who will get you harnessed and up in the air.

You’ll find your thirst quenched and your hunger filled at our numerous food and drink outlets around the festival complex.
