Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kaustinen Folk Music Festival, celebrated yearly in July in Kaustinen, Finland, is the biggest folk music and dance festival in the Nordic countries. It was first celebrated in 1968. In its first year, the festival expected 6,000 visitors. The number was over three times the estimate, though. Nowadays the festival lasts nine days and is visited by over 100,000 people. There are over 3,000 performers from Finland and other countries every year. The festival has a different country theme every year (2003 Greece, 2004 multicultural Canada, 2005 Hungary, 2006 Italy, 2007 Russia).show more
