Uppsala International Guitar Festival is one of the most influential guitar events in the world. “Our vision is to create a meeting place, a music celebration focusing on the guitar. It’s a world-class smorgasbord at which everyone can find their favourite artist or music,” says Klaus Pontvik, founder and festival director. Every year between the 8th and 12th of October Uppsala Concert Hall gets packed with thousands of visitors who come be enjoy a programme of workshops, seminars and concerts. For a guitar-lover this is simply too good to miss.
