About About About

Yaga is an open-air gathering taking place in a lakeside location surrounded by Dzukija forests in Lithuania. The event was founded in 2003 by a handful of friends out of a desire to create a place where participants can bring a positive change, enjoy themselves, feel accepted, and be more connected. Yaga remained true to its values. It is annually supported by over a hundred of artists, numerous volunteers, a committed organizational team, and the reinforcement of relatives, long-term friends and partners.

Yaga is dedicated to a multilayered array of art forms – a unity of performance, installation, video, and music at the heart of it. Hedonistic at night and wholesome by day Yaga aspires to bring a positive change into the lives of individuals, communities and broader society by creating a utopian playground, facilitating connections, self-exploration and artistic expression.

Transformation is an essential part of Yaga’s fabric. In Sanskrit, Yaga means sacrifice – an individual process of self-realisation where deliberate and involuntarily abandonments are made, become recognized, accepted and transformed into future benefits.
