SNOBS/NLR Nordic Mix – Convention Helsingborg

May 9-11, 2024

After a record breaking SNOBS convention last year, we are now deep into the planning for the next fantastic convention in 2024. This time we will once again join forces with Nordic Light Region 32 Sweet Adelines for another marvelous Nordic Mix competition weekend. On this (SNOBS) page you will find all SNOBS related competition information and a general high level schedule for the convention. If you are looking for more details regarding the Nordic Light Region 32 specific part of the competition/convention please visit https://nordiclightregion.com/ for more information.

The SNOBS competition is open to men’s, women’s and mixed quartets and choruses. That means that there are 6 championship gold medals to be handed out during the competition.

The SNOBS contests will be judged by a double panel of BHS judges, making it the perfect place to qualify for the Barbershop Harmony Society international competition.

This page will be updated continuously as soon as more information becomes available.

Accommodation – Official Convention Hotels!

For  convention rates make sure to book one of the official convention hotels. The convention in 2024 happens to coincide with the Eurovision Song Contest Final weekend in Malmö 2024, which unfortunately means that hotel rooms are in high demand also in Helsingborg which of course have made accommodation more expensive. Please see each hotel for instructions on how to book. If you so desire you are also free to book accommodation with housing options not on the list of official convention hotels.
