And if you'd like to try your hand at something uniquely Finnish, don't miss the plethora of bizarre sports contests in the summer.

Festivals

Finland hosts many music festivals (festari) during the summer.

Most of the festivals last 2-4 days and are very well organized, with many different bands playing, with eg. Foo Fighters and Linkin Park headlining at Provinssi 2008. The normal full ticket (all days) price is about €60-100, which includes a camp site where you can sleep, eat and meet other festival guests. The atmosphere at festivals is great and probably you'll find new friends there. Of course drinking a lot of beer is a part of the experience.
