If your life consisted of only one day, what would you choose to do that day?
Nature Concerthall’s hero of this year – a mayfly (Ephemera vulgata). Mayfly is a water insect whose larvae live only in clean, mainly flowing water, therefore this year’s Nature Concerthall venues are chosen next to the rivers. A life span of a mayfly can be from a few hours to 10 days, but mostly they don’t live longer than one day.
The creative team of the Nature Concerthall, researching this year’s hero, reveals: “One day in a human life is a whole life of a mayfly. Through the short life of a mayfly, which in fact is only a brief moment, we would like to draw attention to visitors of the consequences of temporality, as well as how longevity is dependent on single moments.”
Venue: “Satekas” Skriveri county.

I tell you! If all events were like this one, I'd have to fire most of my staff! After more than 5,000 people spent hours in the sand dunes - not one piece of garbage left behind! Almost no disruption of the surroundings!
Thank you for creating such an amazing, wondrously beautiful, true and gratifying art! May you have enough creativity for many more years
The Oss year's concert is of special significance to me personally as after the Ogre concert, under the dome of stars - I asked my then-girlfriend to be my wife!
Once I was stopped in a shopping mall by a couple. They complained that under the influence of our event, their son was asking for a microscope - not latest toy - for Christmas.
Thanks to all musicians and people who can create something with such synchronicity of the soul, science, meditation and other emotions!
