Events for this project:
The culture organisation Humlan is developing its festival events for 2014. The projects main objective is to enhance the two festivals Umeå Open Grand Slam and POPUP Grand Slam. By this the organisers are hoping to establish Umeå as a world metropole of music.
The programme is loaded with great artists of rock n’ roll and pop from many parts of the world, as well as local musicians. Innovative music will meet more established genres and new co-operations are bound to see the light of day. The target is to make the festivals bigger and better and establish Umeå as a venue for high-quality international rock and pop. Networks and organisations are constructed in order to materialize that.
