Media accreditation for covering the ceremonial concert of 21 August


On 21 August 2011, at 15:00 a classical music concert organised by the Saeima and devoted to the anniversary of restoration of Latvia’s independence will begin at the Latvian National Theatre.

Members of the Supreme Council of the Republic of Latvia, members of the Congress of People's Deputies of the Soviet Union, Speakers of the Baltic and Nordic parliaments, current and former top public officials, former ambassadors of the Republic of Latvia, representatives of the diplomatic missions, clergy and local governments, as well as other public officials, have been invited to the concert.

Special accreditation is required for media representatives who want to cover the proceedings of the concert. In order to apply for accreditation, media representatives should send an e-mail at or call +371 67087266. Media representatives accredited for work at the Saeima must indicate their name and surname, while other media representatives must indicate their name, surname, ID number, medium which they represent and phone number.

Media representatives can apply for special accreditation by 16:00 on 16 August 2011.

Due to the limited number of seats, special accreditation will be granted to no more than one journalist, one photographer and one cameraman from each medium. We request cameramen to bring not more than one video camera.

If the number of interested persons is greater than the number of available seats, preference will be given to the earliest applicants. Application for accreditation does not guarantee the granting of accreditation.

During the concert, photographing and videotaping may be done only from the 1st balcony; after the concert, there will be an opportunity to interview attendees of the concert. NB! During the concert, journalists and cameramen will be seated in different sections. Cameramen and photographers must remain in their seats till the end of the concert.

Media representatives will be informed in person about the granted accreditation. Special accreditation cards will be issued upon arrival in person to the Public Relations Department of the Saeima, Jēkaba iela 16, Room 114 by 17:00 on 19 August or from 9:00 to 14:00 on 21 August.
