Wordless theatre, concerts, clubs, courses, debates… Over the years, Finland’s longest-running urban festival has always sought to remain a few steps ahead of its time and to experiment with new ideas. The programme will also include many free events for visitors of all ages.

Our 2019 programme will include the Italian baroque artist Giorgio Dellarole, BayanTonic (Lars Karlsson, Sweden, Öivind Farmen, Norway), and the splendid Russian ESSE Quintet from St Petersburg – with the Guardia Nueva tango orchestra naturally enjoying pride of place. This festival really brings out the extraordinary versatility of the accordion as a musical instrument in a classical, modern and light music context. The programme will also include dance, community singing and outdoor events.
The seven festivals and fringe events of this late summer celebration attract a total of between 55 and 60 thousand visitors every year. Oulu August Festival incorporates Elojazz, Oulunsalo Soi Chamber Music Festival, Muusajuhlat Literary art festival, Oulu Arts Night, Koiteli Elää pop and rock festival, Oulu Music Video Festival and the Air Guitar World Championships. The programme varies from year to year, ranging from small concert events and the Oulu August Festival presents series for local talent to contemporary circus and choral celebrations. Many programme events are also open to the public free of charge, meaning that everyone is invited to our August sensation!
This annual celebration encompasses several events, with theatre, high-class art exhibitions, design, gift items, open-air dances and musical events. So why not mix business and pleasure at Orivesi this summer?
