The survey charts the significance of the disco club "Kåren Kellari" for young people of the 1960s and 1970s who lived in Kymenlaakso region. The club was located in Karhula area. The data were collected by a weblog, on which everyone who used to frequent "Kåren Kellari" between 1969 and 1979 was allowed to write. The researcher controlled the conversation loosely by raising new topics every week and by summarising preceding discussions. Altogether about a hundred people wrote on the blog. 15-25 of them were active writers, and altogether approximately 4,700 messages were submitted during nine months. The blog writers also sent photographs from the 1960s and 1970s, which were published in the weekly summaries.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
