We announce with a heavy heart that this winter, for the first time in 25 years, our established music event in Äkäslompolo will not take place
The reason for the cancellation of the event is the current epidemic situation, the uncertainties it brings and the most recent interest rate restrictions imposed on Lapland. Although from the beginning we designed the gigs to be small, spacious and corona safe, the health and financial risks of running the festival eventually grew impossible. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause, but we also want to thank artists, the local people & businesses in the area and friends of the festival for the understanding, encouragement and support we have encountered during the fall in ever-changing situations.
Life goes on! At this stage, we present a warm invitation to come to Ylläs for good music on January 27-30, 2022! We hope that the world will look very different then than it is now and that we will be able to organize the festival safely for the public, the performers, the residents of the area as well as the staff of the venues. While waiting for it, stay healthy, listen to music, support the artists and go to gigs as soon as possible. We need music now and in the future.
Regards, Ilkka, Pasi and Heli
