Gala Dinner

We invite the participants of the conference to our Gala Dinner on Thursday 24th of August at Gävle Concert Hall. (Please notice that the dinner is not included in the conference fee and separate registration is required in the registration form.)


The Concert Hall in Gävle

Gävle Concert Hall was inaugurated in January 1998 and was designed by the architect Bo Karlberg. The nature around Gävle Konserthus had a great influence and was a source of inspiration for the architect.

The house is located by Gavleån's rapids and the facade is clad in shiny deep blue tiles. Under a large canopy roof, the visitor is welcomed by a rolled out granite carpet. The interior walls and floor look the same but in reality the floor is white fine-sawn Greek limestone while the walls consist of colored concrete elements. The white color and the beautiful materials are the basis of the house's austere interior elegance. The foyer extends into a gallery corridor with a ticket office, cloakroom and the smaller concert hall, the Bo Linde hall. In the background are two large bay windows facing Gavleån. At the far end of the building is the restaurant and the large concert hall, the Gevalia Hall.


LionDub på scen

During the dinner the band LionDub will performe. LionDub is a nine-piece reggae band from Gävle, Sandviken and Uppsala. LionDub has for more than a decade been a well-established band on the Swedish reggae scene.

LionDub's music is a beautiful mixture of Roots Reggae (UK style) and Lovers Rock. The band is famous for their joyfulness and professionalism at their live performances, but also for their tight sound and a world-class brass section.
