Dear Kalmarites and recentiors, Kalmar nation continuously reviews the nation’s activities and plans and adapts it in relation to current and new pandemic restrictions. We look forward to welcome new members at Kalmar nation to start their studies in Uppsala this autumn, but also to welcome old members back from a much-needed summer break. Regardless of an ongoing pandemic or not, Kalmar Nation is ready to digitally or physically reopen the gates by the autumn semester 2021.
We do not cancel, we adjust!
See you at Kalmar!

********ENGLISH BELOW*********
Går du sällan utan hörlurar i öronen?
Behöver du få lite nytt och fräscht i dina spellistor?
Skulle dina grannar kanske må bra en paus från att lyssna på dina bangers hela tiden?
Om svaret på någon av dessa frågor är “ja!” vill vi väldigt gärna bjuda in dig till Kalmar Nations pånyttfödda BLANDBANDSCIRKEL!!! Träffa andra musikfantaster för att diskutera dina favoriter, hitta nya genrer, och bara nörda ut över hur otroligt det är med musik!

Tisdagar från 19 till 20.30 i Kalmar Nations bibliotek (på övervåningen)!

Varje vecka kommer vi att bestämma ett tema. Tolka temat precis hur du vill och kom på en låt som passar som du verkligen vill dela med dig av. Vi samlas, lyssnar, diskuterar, och över terminens gång kommer vi samla låtar från alla teman för att skapa det ultimata Kalmar-mixtapet. Det kommer också finnas tid för allmänt musiksnack - ta bara med era favoriter och ett öppet sinne för andras musik!

Hör av dig till antingen Anton Ånell eller Lars Littmann, eller bara släng ut en fråga i facebook-gruppen: “Blandbandscirkeln på Kalmar Nation.”


Do your earbuds rarely leave your ears?
Do you sometimes suffer from stale playlists?
Could your neighbours use a break from hearing your awesome music?
If any of the above applies to you, then come join us for a new edition of KALMAR’S MIXTAPE CIRCLE!!! Get together with fellow music enthusiasts to discuss your favourite finds, discover new genres, and just geek out over whatever it is you love about music.
Tuesday nights from 19.00 to 20.30 in Kalmar nation’s library (upstairs)
Each week, we announce a theme. Interpret it however you want and use it to think of a track that you’d love for others to hear. We listen together, discuss, and over the course of a semester, create the ultimate Kalmar Mixtape. There will also be plenty of opportunity to chat about whatever new (or old) music you found. Just bring a device to play your song, and an open ear for other’s music.
Reach out to either Anton Ånell or Lars Littmann, or post in our Facebook group “Blandbandscirkeln på Kalmar nation”.
