Loistefestari opens doors for young amateur musicians

Performance experience, new contacts and plenty of encouraging feedback from top musicians– the Loistefestari festival to be held in March offers all this and more. The registration has ended 4.2.2018.

The event is open to all 10–20-year-old amateur musicians living in the Helsinki metropolitan area. The event’s genres are classical music, traditional music and popular music (including rock, pop, jazz, chanson, schlager, hiphop, reggae, dance).

The Loistefestari festival will be held 24–25 March in Kannusali in Espoo, in Vernissa Culture Center in Vantaa ja Culture Arena Gloria in Helsinki as part of the national Nuori kulttuuri (“Young culture”) festival series. The Loistefestari gala showcases the different performances in Culture Arena Gloria on Wednesday March 28th . The most interesting performances will get a chance to represent the Helsinki region in the Nuori Kulttuuri SOUNDS event, which will be held in Mikkeli 25–27 May.

The event is organised by the youth and cultural administrations of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen.
