Season opening


The start of Giessie will be held on Rådhustorget at 14:00-15:00. We offer all kinds of things – music, dancing and the launches of some exciting new projects in our summer city.

The celebration will begin with master of ceremonies Ottiliana Rolandsson introducing the project 5 old pianos that the Umeå creator Marc Strömberg have designed into playable artwork. The flower festival Bloom will also transform central Umeå to a thriving cultural experience. Samuel Ljungblahd, who with his magical soul voice is on tour in Sweden and Scandinavia, appears as well as Maxida Märak (pictured), a young musician and actor from Jokkmokk whose hip hop takes Sápmi to the dance floors. The breakdance group Fusion Force Crew and dancehall group So Special Crew also makes a guest appearance with Maxida Märak.
