Programme 2021

From 7 to 22 May, we kicked off the anniversary year digitally with an online festival programme consisting of readings, lectures, a Swedish song greeting and a Scandinavian feature film highlight. Many of the digital contributions are available as videos to watch afterwards on our YouTube account.
Full of enthusiasm, we are now looking forward to the summer and to being able to experience music from Northern Europe in Greifswald again in July and August.
