Join Robin and Dance at the Grand Summer Opening

« Back
This year the Grand Summer Opening, now becoming a tradition, will feature Robin as the top artist, while student choirs from Joensuu and the surrounding area will officially proclaim the arrival of summer. The popular singer's programme will include his top hit Boom Kah and the new piece Hula Hula.

However, this is not just about music but also about dance. The idea is to have all 6,500 young singers and the audience joining Robin in Hula Hula. Traditionally, the event has attracted audiences of about 15,000. At the Laulurinne event arena, we hope to witness over 20,000 people swinging arms and hips to the same rhythm.

Due to the large audiences expected, there will be special traffic arrangements on the day. Please note, for instance, that Linnunlahdentie will be closed to traffic between Hallitie and Länsikatu.
If you can, please walk or cycle to the event. Free car parking is available at Louhelankenttä and in near-by streets. You can also use the paying car park at Kenttämiehentie.

The Grand Summer Opening - Suven avaus - will take place at Laulurinne on Friday, 02.06. from 18.00 hours.
