Wordless theatre, concerts, clubs, courses, debates… Over the years, Finland’s longest-running urban festival has always sought to remain a few steps ahead of its time and to experiment with new ideas. The programme will also include many free events for visitors of all ages.
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!
This annual celebration encompasses several events, with theatre, high-class art exhibitions, design, gift items, open-air dances, musical events, and even a circus! So why not mix business and pleasure at Orivesi this summer?
The 20th festival will feature a special jubilee exhibition and publication, and our International Accordion Congress. Programme highlights will include Wu Wei (Germany/China), Pascal Contet (France) and Johanna Juhola (Finland) – with the Guardia Nueva tango orchestra naturally enjoying pride of place. This festival really brings out the extraordinary versatility of the accordion as a musical instrument in a classical, modern and light music context. The programme will also include dance, community singing and outdoor events.
