New Wave 2004
This is the first photo gallery on “New Wave 2004”, the international song contest for young singers, which took place from July 28 to August 1, 2004 in Jurmala, Latvia.
These photos were taken during the July 19th drawing, on the lawn next to the hotel “Baltija”, where the competitors stayed.
As part of the competition, each participant had to hit a vase with a number using a paintball gun.
Please also look at the second photo gallery - "Drawing at the Water Park”, and the third gallery - "New Wave 2004 Stars!" when you’ve finished with this one.
