Polar Night Weekend

The Under the Reading Lamp project culminates in the two-day event at Turku Main Library from 11 to 12 Nov 2011. The Main Library will be open exceptionally till late in the night and this event sheds light on new dimensions of the library, a public facility open to all. The themes of the event are sleeping, sleeplessness and darkness.

The Main Library will be open until midnight on Friday 11th Nov. A big part of Friday night's programme is music and thus suitable for everyone regardless of language. Magenta Skycode, Turku Filharmonic Orchestra's quartette, Nightsatan, Tervakello, prayer songs, lullabys and much more. Performance artist Leena Kela, Artist Collective CJAM and the Sandman will be entertaining the public from 7 pm till midnight. Also Café Sirius offers its delights untill midnight with the Music Department's DJs playing background music all night long.

On Saturday 12th Nov the musical program continues with Turku-based rappers Haamu, Putkiradio and Chydeone and the legendary progressive rock group Kaamos. Leena Kela will continue her performances also on Saturday. The Main Library is open normally until 4 pm.
