NORDLICHTER Festival: Nordic Music and Arts

09.04.2013 |

On 27 April 2013 the ARS BALTICA accredited festival NORDLICHTER will take place at Radialsystem V in Berlin (Germany) presenting old Nordic Folklore with the theme "Back to the Roots". Get your tickets now!

In the first two years, with more than 100 artists, composers and ensembles NORDLICHTER became an interesting platform for Nordic Music. An important part of the festival is to give appointments to young composers from the Nordic countries and from Berlin to build a strong co-operation and to support the exchange between Berlin and the other participating countries.

This year, on 27 April you can see:

  • Esbjerg Ensemble from Denmark (making new Nordic music by playing Helena Tulve, Juliana Hodkinson and Steingrimur Rohloff)
  • Heinavanker Vokalensemble from Estonia (combining sacral and traditional Estonian folk music)
  • Frode Haltli meets Gjermund Larsen from Norway (a mix of classic, folk, jazz and avant-garde music played by an accordion and a violin)
  • Ensemble Adapter Stillstehen und Festzurren” from Germany and Denmark (playing a mix of pop, electro, jazz and new music)
  • Andy Benz meets Jueri Gagarino from Germany and Denmark (combining acoustic with electronic sounds and creating a mix of contemporary music and DJ-aesthetics)


On 26 April there will be "Sounding Apartments" where residents of the city can open their private rooms for little concerts to create a directly exchange between artist and audience. The host invites the audience on his own so it will be private events.
