the ticket prices dropped for the public events! For people
without the festivalpass low-low-prices:
Way too cool. Welcome everybody, let's make this the convention
of our lives!
An updated version of the program is available now.
Changes might still happen.
As a last moment surprise guest we have
finnish wonder man SAKARI MÄNNISTÖ.
He will be performing
in the public show with our other stars
on saturday evening.
Festival arrangements are going nicely.
Alas, we cannot have the sauna, but for
sauna hungry people there is always the spa
hotel Caribia next door. More workshops
confirmed also! Right on!
We regret to announce that our Ukrainian guests cannot
come to the festival! They have cancelled, because their
schedules for the spring have changed. This is very sad
news for us all, but we promise that the festival will
be a great success even without our leading stars.
Right now we try our hardest to get our money back for
their flights. If we get them, maybe we can arrange some
other cool things. Thumbs up!
On the other hand the festival is coming together very
good. Thank you for everyone who pre-registered, and paid in
advance. We hope that everyone will still pre-register
even though they will not get the discount. The more people
pre-register, the better we can arrange everything.
There is also a rumor going around, that there might be a
sauna at the festival...
To keep all of you smiling on the face of these sad news,
I want to publish this great summery picture. This is Rauli Kosonen
and he will NOT be cancelling his performance at Nordic Juggling
Convention 2009. See him and many other great artists there,
and bring a smile!
