Charity[edit]

The Baltic Soul Weekender is not only a music festival, it also supports legendary soul artists all over the world. Although it sometimes takes years to find these people, it is much easier finding them than to persuade them having a comeback after not been on stage for 30 years or more. The Baltic Soul Weekender makes it its business to support these artists and take care of legal, social and financial aspects in their life.
