Metsäfestiwal 2012 (Forest Festival) is the biggest alternative music and art event in Finland. It combines different sub-culture music styles into one big carnival which will continue non-stop over the weekend of 27-29th July, 2012. More than 60 world-class artists, bands and individual musicians play on four stages, offering the finest bits of alternative music in a relaxing and mind-lifting atmosphere.
The festival site is located approximately 200km from the Finnish capital Helsinki in the municipality of Mäntyharju, in the lovely countryside of Finland, with breathtakingly beautiful forests and crystal clear lakes. We will be selling tickets to festival buses through our website starting from early June.
The party area itself is located in a forest surrounding which has been exclusively designed for this event. The stages and bars are made of timber wood and are hand-built on-site. The awesome wooden stages along with colorful, mind-boggling decorations and light shows create a truly unique audiovisual experience for this summers' greatest alternative culture festival.
The Finnish decoration group Flowers of Life will host the Flowers Stage and Arc Of Carnival-chillout tent, both intended to transform the festival site into a spectacular ultraviolet dimension which will test the limits of one's imagination and reality , combined with light spectacle what makes the surrounding nature glow in colors of rainbow and the blacklight theatre what makes the decos alive .. it will be the most intriguing audiovisual spectacle of this summer.
Subculture Foundation Syvä ry is the other main organizer of the festival. Syvä ry is a Finnish cultural foundation which is well-known for their ambitious work in organizing underground and alternative music events in Finland. Syvä ry will be hosting two stages: the Live Stage which offers music without genre boundaries, from folk-influenced and progressive rock to interesting electronic beats, as well as the Syvä Stage, which is their sole dedication to Finnish underground hip-hop and rap culture.
