New Wave Pop Music Festival to Relocate from Jurmala
 Feb 9, 2012

The international pop-music contest and festival New Wave will not be held in the Latvian coastal resort city of Jurmala anymore, as the organizers have run out of patience in their dealings with the local authorities. The organizers plan to select another city as the festival venue; Riga is one of the candidates, Russian composer New Wave organizer Igor Krutoy said in a statement.

Krutoy explained that New Wave organizers and Jurmala City Council are no longer able to cooperate. This information has been circulating of social networks but was only made official yesterday.

Latvian composer and one of the festival’s patrons, Raimonds Pauls said he heard the rumors that the festival will not take place in Jurmala anymore, but was not surprised, as there have been disagreements between Jurmala city and the festival's organizers in the past.

The Jurmala City Council said that it has not received any official information as yet that the festival will not be held in Jurmala this summer. This year’s New Wave was scheduled to take place in Jurmala from July 24 to July 29, and tickets are already being sold. Last year, the festival celebrated its 10th anniversary.
