What is the Oulu2026 Stage?

The Oulu2026 Stage is part of the journey of the Oulu region towards becoming the European Capital of Culture in 2026. Oulu Culture Foundation is responsible for the stage programme and the artist selection.

The Oulu2026 Stage has been organised since 2022, offering a wide range of musical performances with free entry. The stage will present local artists and talents every summer until 2026 during the Qstock Festival.

The artists for the Oulu2026 Stage are selected through an open call accessible to everyone. The application period for the summer 2024 stage concluded on March 1. We received a great number of applications: 164 – thanks to all applicants!

The next artist selection for 2025 will be launched later in 2024. Follow us on social media and stay tuned!
