The delightfully laid back approach, top class performers and uniquely homespun mood of this extraordinary skiffle music event creates a package that major festivals can only aspire to.
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.
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.
The largest dance event in the Nordic countries will bring 2500 dancers to Tampere. SottiisiMoves 2020 will combine the national Young Culture Moves dance review and the international folk dance and music festival Pispala Schottische into a grand celebration of styles and playmaker encounters open to everyone with an interest in dance and folk music. Pispala Schottische and the Youth Art Event have been arranged since 1970, and so 2020 marks the golden jubilee for both of these regular celebrations. SottiisiMoves 2020 will be organised by the Finnish Youth Association.
