Baltic Sea Festival 2021
CONNECTING PEOPLE THROUGH MUSIC AND TALKS
Welcome to the Baltic Sea Festival – a festival for musical experiences and inspirational talks where emotions and the power of thought meet. At our festival we aim for new ideas to be discussed, artistic experiences to be explored in greater depth, and to emerge a sense of community around the Baltic Sea.
The Baltic Sea Festival in Berwaldhallen, Stockholm, is one of Europe’s largest and foremost classical music festivals with world-class artists, orchestras, and conductors from the Baltic Sea region.
In collaboration with libraries and other cultural venues around the Baltic Sea region, we present discussions between high-profile individuals within the fields of music, politics, and environmentalism, moderated by journalists from Swedish Radio. The discussions revolve around music and sustainability and serve as a thematic pre-concert talk that is broadcast live for the concert audience. The purpose is to open up the audience’s awareness of the sensitive environment and the vulnerability of the Baltic Sea through the emotional power of music.
The Baltic Sea Festival operates throughout the Baltic Sea region, physically as well as digitally. The Baltic Sea Festival concerts are streamed on balticseafestival.com and broadcast live on P2 on Swedish Radio, on all public service companies around the Baltic Sea, and via the European Broadcasting Union, EBU.
