This major international celebration of folk dance and music has been bringing enthusiasts and their friends to Tampere since 1970 for the most footloose scene of the summer. The versatile programme provides a full range of folk dance concerts, training courses and night dances.
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, so be sure to save the third weekend in July for the most interesting and good-humoured celebration of the Finnish cultural summer!
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 33rd season ahead of the festival, our Folk Course is the core of this international event.
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.
