Surrender to all the senses

The sweetest festival of the summer brings together sparkling top artists from Finland and abroad to provide breathtaking experiences in varying venues!


During the festival week, the audience may travel in time and different genres of music and dramatized events in the beautiful concert hall, dusky cabins, ambient churches, and urban spaces.

The theme of summer 2024 opens up the world of creative madness and the early sounds of the classical music era. 

The popular Summer Academy master classes spice up the concert series with youthful energy, allowing the public to follow the mentoring and lectures, or even take their own lessons in music making.

Pianists Tuija Hakkila and Anna Laakso have guided the artistic direction of this event in alternate years with no disinclination to deliver

surprises and powerful moods 

– the upcoming summer flutist Kaisa Kortelainen will complete

the brilliant trio of planning!
