The best way to truly get to know the heart of a country is by attending a music festival. Gem Fest is no different; it completely immerses you in the charming culture of the Baltic region in Latvia as you listen to ear candy played by the biggest electronic dance gods from all over the world. Four stages will play host to over a hundred massive names in house, trance, and techno. Past festivals have seen Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Dubfire, Fedde Le Grand, and Solomon on the bill.
‘Gem Fest is your chance to see your favorite electronic dance music artists spin their hottest tracks in an incredible beachside destination in Latvia.’
This is also an excellent opportunity to get to discover local and regional talent that may just blow you away! Beyond the music, the festival program will be abundant with an array of phenomenal recreational activities to indulge in. While it’s still a young festival in Europe, Gem Fest has already managed to bring in over 1,000 artists to play at past festivals. We expect it to continue growing year after year, so make sure you book those tickets!
Jurmala, a gorgeous beach resort in Latvia, will be playing host to Gem Fest.

Jurmala, the largest resort town in the Baltic, has stunning beaches and a terrain made up of a combination of pine forests, thermal waters, sand dunes, and beaches. If you love the outdoors, you’re not going to run out of sights and activities to enjoy. Jurmala’s beaches have sand made out of fine white quartz, and it’s one of the cleanest beaches you’ll come across in Europe.
The main beach in Jurmala, Majori, is a great place to start your beach adventures. There are beach side bars and restaurants where you can spend your days under the sun, sipping cold beer. Jurmala’s nightlife can hardly be called such, but during the summer it’s got a charm of its own. Check out the numerous al fresco cafes with a view, many of which will stay open long past midnight as long as you’re patronizing their bars. After Jurmala, head on over to Riga to explore even more beaches.
