Vibe

Ilosaarirock is more than a festival, with side events, club nights and other event. In the main festival 50 acts appear over five stages.

Each year the graphic look of the festival is chosen through an open design contenst, whereas profits of the festival are used to support bands and artists in the North Karelian music scene.

While the lineup is predominately rock based, including metal and punk, it's not unknown for the occasional electro or hiphop act to appear, with organisers leaving rooms for the surprises.
