Vaasan Sähkö Arena – Polar Sound Festival

Hot midwinter festival celebration at Vaasan Sähkö Arena

Over the years, Vaasan Sähkö Arena has hosted many major music events in the Ostrobothnia region. One of them was the new generation winter event, the Polar Sound Festival. The three day music festival targeted at young adults was arranged at the Arena four times from 2013 to 2016. The hugely popular event featured several top performers, including Scooter (GER), E-Type (SWE), Pandora (SWE), Village People (USA), and Finnish top favourites Apulanta, Vesala, JVG, Abreu, Antti Tuisku, Sanni and many others.

Flexible, diverse and customer-oriented cooperation

 In 2016, the two-day festival attracted up to 10,000 visitors. The feedback received from participants was excellent, and for the wintertime festival, Vaasan Sähkö Arena proved to be the perfect venue. The festival organiser has been extremely satisfied with the long-term cooperation.

“Cooperation has always been very smooth. I appreciate self-initiative in both parties, and the Arena company has always had a very positive attitude towards entrepreneurs and helped with any challenges that come up. Vaasan Sähkö Areena offers exceptionally good additional services and furnishings in addition to the actual venue, the arena. For example, the solution for covering the ice on the arena is one of the best in Finnish ice rinks,” says Tommi Mäki, promoter of the Polar Sound Festival.
