Norpas is a festival that mixes popular culture with advanced arts. It is being organized for the fourth time to be held this year again in Taalintehdas, on the island of Kemiö, a few hours drive from Helsinki. You can help support the organization of this exceptional event and benefit from the discounts by participating in this short crowdfunding project!
Norpas is an unusual culture festival for everyday people
Over the weekend of 21st – 23rd of August there will be music, live cinema, art exhibitions, sound installations, performances, circus and workshops in Taalintehdas.
In this old and historically rich industrial village the artistic events can be experienced more profoundly and closely than in a big city. As in any rock festival, in Norpas you can celebrate until late night but in the morning, if you’re feeling sensitive or dizzy, there are exhibitions, restaurants and more tranquile shows to be enjoyed.
In Norpas the artists and the public live the same moment, breathe the same air
This year’s main artists include the accordion champion Kimmo Pohjonen and the singer Ismo Alanko together with Spain’s most extraordinary flamenco singer Niño de Elche. Among other artists you will find the Finnish rock legend Tuomari Nurmio, Jukka & Jytämimmit, an indescribable Finnish rock trio, the Japanese-Spanish jazz group Takeo Takahashi Quartet, the clarinetist David Rothenberg from New York, and Luova Tuho, a catastrophic performance that combines music, dance and video. The whole program can be found on our webpage.
This crowdfunding project works as a pre-sale, and your rewards will be marked down from the original prices.
The rewards can be picked up at Rosala Handelsbod in Taalintehdas throughout August, or at the festival office during the festival.
