Events in Finland

Fancy a Finnish festival? There’s no shortage of events, concert and parties taking place in Finland throughout the year. If you’re in town in summer, Helsinki’s Flow Festival is the one to pick, with music of all genres from indie, hip-hop, rock and jazz to opera.

Or, for something really quirky, don’t miss the Siirrettävien Saunojen, where competitors vie to win a prize for the most unusual portable sauna – yes, really!

Whether you want culture, sport, music, or something more unusual – the World Air Guitar Championships maybe? – check out our Events guide to find out what’s on and where.
