Mark your calendar for a weekend in the alternative Baltic sea resort, where for the 8th year in a row Satta crew will be bringing thousands of people together on the beach, in the fields, and on many stages across the site. The music direction will be heading beats-and bass-side, involving oldschool and new school, the legends and upcomers you don’t yet know but will love after the festival.
Festival will take place in Pape, Latvia, on August 14-17th.
Yeah, we sort of exported ourselves. Truly international now, right? The fact is that, having moved to another country, we’re just 20 kilometers away from where we were last year. And the sea is still there.
It’s 364 km from Vilnius and its airport, 270 km from Kaunas and its airport, 268 km from Riga and its airport and only 30 km from Palanga airport. If you happen to come by a ferry, it’s only about 70 km to the festival site.
We’ll soon update our website with the most convenient ways to fly and drive to the festival.
Many people have been saying ‘Satta’ instead of ‘Satta Outside’ for a while now. We kind of got used to that as well. ‘Outside’ once meant getting to the beach outside of Vilnius where the Satta bar used to be, but that’s ancient history.
Satta isn’t literally a beach festival but the seaside has always been a couple of minutes (or even seconds, as last year) away. Some activities will be held on the beach and there will be plenty of time to polish your suntan.
We’re very well aware of that and we’ve read all the messages and emails. We also remember long walks from parking and town, together with lineup changes and other issues. One of the reasons we moved to Latvia – everythings‘ very close to the site in Pape! Also, the team has been updated with fresh minds who are already busy making sure everything’s in order.
Sure. Pape is a resort town, so you do have options. We’ll update the website soon with all the necessary English-speaking contacts.
Pape is a nature park. We were aware of that before deciding to move there and we’re on friendly terms with nature officials in Latvia. The renovation of the park’s infrastructure will be an integral part of this year’s programme. Ecology is generally our thing!
Check back later to find festival programme full of sports, arts, ecology and other things to keep you entertained.
We got plenty! The full menu of food vendors will be revealed before the festival, but we can assure you vegetarians are treated with the same respect as meat lovers and there’ll be a lot of different cuisines. You can bring your own food if you have a special diet to keep to.
Alcoholic drinks bought outside of the festival territory are not permitted and will be confiscated. You can buy fresh and cold beer in numerous places inside the territory.
Definitely much cheaper than Glastonbury! You will be able to get a fresh cold beer (more than one variety!) for around 2 euro and have a decent meal for about 4 or 5 euro.
There will be a first aid team on site.
99% of our staff and volunteers are English-speaking. Most also speak some other language. Don’t worry, you’ll be in good hands.
You’ll be safe. And the security people have been working in festivals for many years so they know who they are dealing with.
Don't forget your festival ticket and enough cash (Latvia is in the Euro zone).
A raincoat as Lithuania has very few droughts! A sunscreen and a bikini or swimming trunks. A mobile phone and a charger.
A tent and a sleeping bag would be nice if you are planning to stay in the camping area.
A torch and some essential medicine, especially painkillers. You know you're gonna need them.
Only if you really need to (for example, have been travelling with your dog all summer). Keep your best friend tied with you and collect everything he leaves behind.
We’ll soon publish media accreditation forms, fill one out and we’ll see.
Sure. You will be able to park it in the parking area for additional fee (we’ll confirm that later). Alternatively, you can find commercial camping sites in and around Pape.
