These festivals have united university students from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania since 1956, in the tradition of the Baltic song festivals that have been entered in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The XVIII festival promises to be a particularly happy celebration, as all three of the Baltic states will be in the midst of celebrating their centenaries, and the festival will be held during the Estonian Victory Day and Midsummer celebrations.
