THE BALTIC SEA FESTIVAL 2019 IS OVER!

Thanks to all participants, all of our partners, everyone in the audience - both in Berwaldhallen and at the venues around the Baltic Sea, and also everyone who followed us on balticseafestival.com or in Sveriges Radio P2. Seven festival days with classical music were combined with seven talks where interesting personalities from the Baltic Sea region met to discuss sustainability and music. The concerts are available 30 days after broadcast, but the talks remain until the next festival.
