Baltoscandal is legendary international performing arts festival that will take place from 1st – 4th of July 2020 in Rakvere. 

This will be the 16th Baltoscandal. The festival takes place every second year, what makes it 30 years from the first Baltoscandal. It is the oldest performing arts and theatre festival not only in Estonia but in all Baltic states. The festival was created by Peeter Jalakas and Von Krahl Theatre and the first two editions took place in Pärnu. From 1994 it is organised by Rakvere Theatre and from 2003 the artistic director of the festival is Priit Raud. 

Baltoscandal`s eyes are set on the future and it senses the current pulses in society, bringing together various tastes, colours, sounds, feelings, ideas, languages, tonalities, rhythms and clichés. The aim of the festival from the very start has been also introducing different forms, reasons and possibilities of theatre.

Festival is going to host 13–14 different productions this summer and along with theatre introduces also a small film programme. 

The programme of the festival will be announced on the 1st of May 2020. That same day also the sale of the single tickets will begin.
