NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

That was Norden Festival 2021

The third NORDEN Festival in Schleswig ended with an emotional final concert by Hamburg pianist Niklas Paschburg. Over 300 participating artists and exhibitors from the northern European region spoiled the visitors with a variety of cultural offerings over three weekends. At concerts and readings there were several German premieres to celebrate. Around 28,000 visitors attended the festival on at least one of the twelve event days, 10,000 tickets were sold. 10% of the visitors used the test center in front of our ticket booth, not a single positive Corona case was registered.
The music program this year was more varied than ever before. Rock and pop, jazz, ska, hiphop, R'n'B, singer songwriter music or swing. On each of the festival days, visitors were able to experience the entire spectrum of Northern European music on the stages of the Königswiesen.
Among the musical highlights were concerts by young musicians from Tonbandgerät, Tribe Friday and Jeden Tag Silvester. The performances by Deine Cousine, Jesse Markin, The KutiMangoes and The Schwings also drew large crowds in front of the stages.
The readings this year featured audience favorites such as Luisa Neubauer, Nora Gantenbrink, Oliver Lück and Lennart Adam. Many guests left the Kulturzelt with a signed book by their favorite authors under their arm and lots of new food for thought.
The Theater Deck was also very popular this year. Besides the performance of Sylvain Oulala, the Circus Helsinki and the artistic comedy show of Jens Ohle made the audience laugh and marvel.
All five film festivals of Schleswig-Holstein presented a best-of program of short films. In addition, Danish, Swedish and Lithuanian short films and children's films were shown. With over 50 workshops and exciting activities from climbing to stand-up paddling, there was something for everyone.
The most popular photo motif on the festival grounds this year was probably the wooden sculpture by Flensburg artist Johannes Caspersen, which was installed on a pontoon by the garden stage. The polar bear, also a motif of this year's NORDEN Festival, symbolically drew attention to the effects and consequences of climate change. Under the sustainable orientation of the festival, numerous lectures, hands-on workshops and exhibitions were presented in the Green Pavilion, by Watt 2.0 and the Europauniversität Flensburg.

Before we look forward to the upcoming NORDEN Festival 2022, we would like to review this year's festival.
Even under pandemic conditions we were able to spend three unforgettable weekends together with you on the Königswiesen in Schleswig. Click here for the aftermovie:
