BALTIC SEA FESTIVAL

The Baltic Sea Festival connects the people in the Baltic Sea countries in for the festival a new way.

The Baltic Sea Festival and our partners wish to see you as our guest – live or digitally. All concerts are broadcast in Swedish Radio P2 and several of them also in many countries in Europe. Welcome!
