Throughout its 65-year history, this multi-arts urban festival has always sought to remain a few steps ahead of its time and to experiment with new ideas. Our theme in 2020 will be the environment, enabling us to reprise and reassess similar topics that we examined half a century ago in the great environmental year of 1970.
This multi-genre urban festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary by bringing a wide range of Finnish and international artists to the Oulu region. Artistic Director Jaakko Kuusisto has prepared a programme of premiere performances, major productions, chamber concerts and club events, together with master classes in classical and rhythm music.
This unique urban festival is a joyful celebration that takes over the entire City Port and downtown districts of Kotka, bringing visitors back time and again to meet old friends and have lots of fun every year! The diverse programme will foster an international atmosphere, with local and international culture, music, dance and theatre, sporting and boating events, and the largest parade of the Finnish summer. There will also be a generous programme of free admission events for families with children, including the Children’s Maritime Festival.
Finland’s largest arts festival will once again provide a diverse programme of events throughout the city, with experiences ranging from classical to world music and pop, from drama to contemporary dance, and from visual art to film and children’s events. We invite and encourage you to lose yourself in the Night of the Arts or get carried away with our fringe programme. This is a festival that brings the arts to everyone!
