OPENING CONCERT: SHISHI

shishi is a Vilnius-based Lithuanian power girl trio, playing a rap / trash / lo-fi / surf / soul music blend with childish joy and feminine energy. Dominyka Kriščiūnaitė, Elena Neniškytė and Giedrė Nalivaikaitė, known from other alternative Lithuanian bands such as “Ministry of Echology”, “Umiko”, “Kotori”, “Homechestra” and “Elle G”, joined their musical forces to create something fresh in the alternative Lithuanian scene. In September 2018, shishi released their debut album „NA x 80″.

The band’s name was chosen (not) randomly. In Chinese, shishi refers to the Imperial guardian lion (also “deer” or “dog”) that repels evil spirits with magical powers. And so is the band shishi – ready to protect your ears from misery every time they come up on stage.
