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.
Sommelo is an international music festival arranged in Kainuu, Finland and Russian Karelia, which are the cradle of most runo singing and other forms of old and new folk music. The event incorporates concerts, courses, conferences, art exhibitions and other attractions for the whole family.
The SottiisiMoves 2020 event that was postponed from mid-June until the autumn will be held on 16-18 October 2020. SottiisiMoves 2020 welcomes everyone who is interested in dance and folk to celebrate dance and music and witness how different styles and artists meet each other. Both Pispala Schottische International Folklore Festival and Youth Art Event, later known as Young Culture, were organized for the first time in 1970, and they will have their 50th anniversary next year. SottiisiMoves 2020 will be organized by the Finnish Youth Association.
