Le Guess Who? tips: Nordic Gold festival Amsterdam - win tickets!

From Thursday December 15th till Saturday December 17th , the 'Nordic Gold Finland' festival takes place in De Melkweg, Amsterdam. During this three-day program, the Finnish (pop) culture is being presented in a multidisciplinary way. It is the first festival that De Melkweg presents under the name Nordic Gold: which shows the surprising, innovative and sometimes alienating (pop) culture of the Nordic countries (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland).

On Thursday and Friday, Nordic Gold is dedicated to (dance) performances, animation and visual arts. The highlight of Nordic Gold takes place on Saturday evening with a complete program for only € 14. At 19.00 several short animated films by the Finnish entertainer Kate Riina Lillqvist are being screened, at 21.00 the dance On Ice by Maija Hirvanen can be seen in Galaxy Theatre followed by an comprehensive music program with performances by LCMDF , Frenchtown Movies and Jaakko & Jay.

LCMDF (Le Corps Mince de Francoise) is a unique fresh electropop duo. French Films is a very promising rock band, creating indie pop songs that are strong and have a certain affinity with British bands like Editors. Duo Jaako & Jay make raw and rousing folk songs, or in their own words 'acoustic folk punk', Hannulelauri are the Finnish ambassadors to the International Disco scene. Their danceable disco and house tunes will close of evening.

Next to the musical programm, visual artist
