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.
