Our 49th Spelit folk music event will be organised on the premises of South Ostrobothnia Folk High School (including venues and accommodation services) and in the scenic natural surroundings of Ilmajoki, featuring more than 20 concerts of folk music, dance and singing, dozens of smaller musical events and performances, the Finnish championships for harmonica and mandolin players, and the Spelit competition for one and two-row accordions.
This urban celebration is a living part of Finland’s national cultural heritage. Organised in a wooded outdoor museum setting, the festival incorporates fresh and nostalgic perspectives on the Finnish Midsummer holiday.
A unique event providing the coolest folk music in an openly experimental style that draws on tradition and respects the folk heritage. The biggest winter happening in the world of folk music and dance will kick off the Finnish festival year. Folklandia is backed by the main organisations, events and educational institutions in the field of folk music and dance.
Surprising and delighting audiences with a wide range of musical attractions for over three decades, this splendid folk music festival also ensures that ethno, bluegrass, fado, Irish folk, jazz and many other musical styles resound through the summer nights of Haapavesi. Poignant, high standard church concerts will captivate audiences. Organised for the 34th season ahead of the festival, our Folk Course is the core of this international event.
