Nordens institut på Åland arrangerar musikfest hållbART

HållbART - livemusic, DJ and sustainability

On August 24-26, the ReGeneration 2030 Summit takes place in Mariehamn. It is an important summit for young people in the Nordic region and the Baltic Sea region with the aim of creating a strong movement for sustainability. Through the hållbART-festival (Sustainable Music Festival), we combine sustainability with art, culture and music, to create a cool meetingplace between different countries, generations and other borders. There will be livemusic, DJ and much more. The main number of the festival is the Norwegian artist Moddi, who with his performance wants to create a debate with strong messages.

A few years ago, Moddi was in Åland with his legendary concert "Unsongs". In September he releases a new album. ”- This fall I release a new album, where the theme is hope. Hope - and the belief in a better future - is not something you get or have, but something you create through your actions. I am really looking forward to coming to Åland and singing songs that I hope can be both inspirational and thoughtful.” says Pål Moddi Knutsen himself. Read more about Moddi here

DJ Kevin will offer some great chill-out-music and the night's confreres are Jack Hancock.

We hope that this small and cozy musicfestival can provide inspiration for dialogues around sustainable development. Art, culture and music serve as a meeting place for innovative thinking about how we can together create a sustainable future, where we can all flourish. Hopefully the hållbART-festival can help create synergies, curiosity and build the framework for the annual ReGeneration2030 Summit.
