Community Calendar:

There will be two concerts on Sirannon Friday: Les Daft Pigs perform French songs and Les Troubadours du Crépuscule play their debut concert.  Start off your summer the right way on Saturday with a pool party on Belegaer featuring music from Frische Brise, Hopfenfees and Friends, the Michel Delving Bunny Watch, Mondbarden, Ohrwurm, Struck by Moonlight, and Wilde Mühle.   Also on Saturday, Lindamar, the ensemble of Bar-en-Vanimar, presents a concert with elven themed songs celebrating the change of a season on Laurelin.  Look below for details on these featured events and a few more, including a couple of 10th anniversary celebrations.

Special notes:

This column will be on hiatus next week while a certain hobbit goes on vacation.  The community events listing will return on June 9th with all the details on the upcoming Brandywine Summer Music Fest and Shirefest.

Speaking of Shirefest, one of the bands had to pull out so there is now a spot available at 3pm on Saturday, June 17th at 3pm EDT.  Please contact, well, me if you want to know more or reply to the post on the Crickhollow Music forums.  Thus concludes this shameless plug for my own festival.

This listing of featured events is only published on Fridays, but our Google calendar is kept up to date throughout the week and includes details on many more activities.  We always aim to have the most complete events calendar in the game and accept events of all types on all servers.  Take a look at this week’s agenda for upcoming events around LOTRO and copy some or all events to your personal calendar.  You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page and on the calendar is to submit a form.

    Is it possible to add The Maidens of Vanimor play Monday from 7:30 GMT by the Prancing Pony Rock on Laurelin (I can’t find any other way of being added to the Calendar
    Many thanks – Everlin

    • I’ve added it to the main calendar. Sorry for the late response but Wifi was terribly spotty on my trip. Will this be a regular concert or a one-time event? If weekly or monthly I’ll make sure to feature it next time around.

      Best way to get anything on the calendar is to submit a form at I can’t set the calendar to open editing for sadly obvious reasons, but after I receive a form I try to make sure it’s added asap and featured on the next post.

  2. some awesome artwork for the events, n1 o7!
    Safe travels (:
