Festival info / English

Kihaus-407.-8.7.2017 Kihaus Folk will celebrate its 27th birthday and

Finland celebrates 100 years of independence

At the heart of Kihaus Folk Festival is of course folk music, seasoned with a spicy mix of dance, blues and pop music, with some stories and tales thrown in for good measure. It will be a soup worth tasting for, cooked up by virtuoso performers from Finland and from abroad and enjoyable by all ages.

Kihaus is held at scenic municipality of Rääkkylä and by visiting us you will also have a chance to enjoy the beautiful Karelian nature. Music will be played in different locations, including the beautiful church of Rääkkylä. There are also shows directed for children, so the littlest ones will also find much to occupy themselves with.

We wish you a heartfelt welcome to Kihaus Folk Festival!
