She said that the light performance was a broader venue than other years – the Daugava Aquatorium, involving the National Library of Latvia and the Sun stone building, "AB dambi", as well as illuminating the panorama of Riga. People played the act on both sides of the Daugava River, as usual on the 11th of November embankment, as well as in Pardaugava and nearby bridges.
The light performance "Sun life" was included in the national centennial of the centennial celebration and was the event of the 100th anniversary of the state of Latvia, which was accessible to the widest audience, as it was possible to watch both on-the-spot and television screens in Latvia and abroad.
The sunshine "Saules laiks" dedicated to the centenary anniversary of the state – the sixth part of the visual musical story about the Latvian state from the idea of its creation to the present with a promise of the future of Latvia – was formed by Latvian artists, who, like other art sectors, represented their best professional performance in light projection scenography, pyrotechnics and light design art.

As LETA said, most people were more likely to attend an ambitious performance than celebrations of other happy years, as evidenced by the fact that due to the large flow of people, it was significantly more difficult to access the venue.
This was promised as the most ambitious show of the Proclamation Day in Latvia and cost EUR 234 999, or about ten times more than in other years, however, it was very often heard from people that the performance was actually ten times better than in other years.
