For Luxembourg's biggest free-and-outdoor festival in Luxembourg, the weather plays an important role. 

The rain showers though,  did not stop fans from celebrating on Friday night as thousands of people attended the festival in Echternach, in the east of the Grand-Duchy.

The first e-Lake festival (although it was not called e-Lake back then), took place in 1983, back then only 400 people attended compared to the thousands of festival-goers making the their way to the shores of the Echternach lake nowadays. 

Musically, the e-Lake Festival is traditionally strictly divided. So on Friday Rock, Pop and Hip Hop could be heard.

Saturday is the DJ day and on Sunday, the festival ends with reggae and music from the 1970s to the 90s.
