VENUES

The Festival takes place at three venues: the Sámi Museum and Nature Centre Siida, the Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos, and the Northern Lights Theatre made of snow.

SAJOS

The Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos is the parliament house of the Finnish Sámi as well as a cultural, educational and competence centre. It is the symbol of Sámi self-government and a living, evolving Sámi culture, and its primary purpose is to foster traditional culture and develop and renew Sámi social life. 

The auditorium Dolla in Sajos has 250 seats, and in addition, the Festival can use the parliament hall Solju and the multipurpose hall Dollagáddi.

NORTHERN LIGHTS 
THEATRE

NOTE! Because of Siidas renovation project, the Northern Lights Theatre is located in the vicinity of Sajos for the 2022 Festival.

The Northern Lights Theatre is the best-known and the most stunning trademark of the Festival: an open-air theatre of 150 seats that is completely made of snow. It is situated in the midst of a forest on the historically valuable premises of Siidas Open-Air Museum.

The path, lit by ice lanterns, leading to the theatre through a protected area of ancient monuments provides the audience a peaceful, meditative experience before a magic film night under the starry Arctic sky. The moon, the stars and the possible aurora borealis are included in the ticket.

At best, the temperature at the screenings has gone down to –30 ˚C (–86 ˚F). The Festival offers the spectators reindeer hides on which to sit on the snow benches, but remember to take the unique conditions into consideration when choosing what to wear to a screening.

Skábmagovat is literally the worlds coolest festival.
