What is RIGaLIVE?

RIGaLIVE is not just a camp; it’s a collaborative songwriting workshop with an aim to craft potential radio hits through creative teamwork. This year’s focus is sync (film, TV series, adverts, video games etc) with a special brief by Magdalena Niestryjewska (Head of Sync and Music Supervisor at Jaguarec, Poland) and Elvijs Pārpucis (Musician and Video Director, Latvia)


What unfolds during these three enriching days?
