  • Kokkola youth services has 16 band rehearsal spaces for rent at the Isojärvi Youth Centre, at Laajalahdentie 85, 67800 Kokkola.

    Playing time in the rehearsal spaces is from 10.00 to 22.00 every day. Drinking and smoking are not allowed in the spaces.

    The rehearsal spaces are around 15 m² in size. There are acoustic panels on the walls and a drum rug on the floor. Other than that, the tenants may furnish the spaces to their liking.

    The tenants are responsible for keeping the spaces tidy. The staff members of the youth services have the right to check the tidiness of the spaces from time to time. The bands have access to a toilet located in the hallway, which is cleaned by the youth services.

    Each band must have an adult spokesperson who signs for the keys to the rehearsal space and to whom the rental invoice is sent. The tenants are responsible for their own instruments. The youth services do not have an insurance policy that would cover private property stored in the rehearsal spaces.

    The price of renting a rehearsal space depends on the average age of the band members. If the average age is under 25 years, the rent is 89 € per month. If the average age is over 25 years, the rent is 149 € per month. The rental invoice is sent each month to the designated adult spokesperson of the band. The period of notice for the rehearsal spaces is one (1) month.

    For more information on the available rehearsal spaces, please contact:

    Youth worker Veijo Mikkola (040 4882 900, veijo.mikkola@kokkola.fi).
