Concert in Mine no 7

Saturday 25 February 2023 20:00
at Gruve 7

Welcome to our special concert during the festival – the concert in the hall of mine number 7. The mine is one the northernmost active coal mines in the world, and it is an important workplace for Longyearbyensinhabitants. Usually, the hall is packed with cars, grit and coal, but for the concert, it will be transformed into a pop-up concert hall, with a stage, lights and filled with outstanding classical musicians. Do not miss this very special concert experience in Longyearbyen during the world’s northernmost classical music festival.
