We once heard a story of a vacationer in Helsinki at a bar who told a local they were visiting for fun and the local said “why?” Though Fins may not understand the appeal of their country (I mean, it is cold and dark most of the year), we do. The Finnish festival scene is unique. They have an affinity for arts festivals and varied taste for music festivals. From black metal, to jazz, the Fins still love a good time. When the average winter temperature is -22 Farenheight and endure 51 days of polar night, expect locals to let loose and truly enjoy the festival experience.
