LEMPO 2013
The third LEMPO – festival!

We did it! We managed to grow and find new venues for performers. Altogether about 3000 people were involved in LEMPO this year. This includes all performers, workers, audiences, workshop and course participants!

We hope that LEMPO has many good years yet to come, and new audiences will find the event. Welcome to enjoy folk music, dance, courses, jamming sessions and workshops with us!

LEMPO-team 2013 thanks all supporters, performers, workers and audience!
