Eve­ry­one’s Sum­mer Fes­ti­val again takes place in Oulu’s Kuusi­saa­ri on 7.6. – head­li­ned by Por­tion Boys

Festival in Oulu

The eup­ho­ric and free of char­ge event of the sum­mer, known as the Eve­ry­bo­dy’s Sum­mer Fes­ti­val, will again take place in Oulu’s Kuusi­saa­ri on 7 June.

The fami­ly friend­ly fes­ti­val is a non-drin­king event inclu­ding a musical pro­gram­me and dif­fe­rent varie­ties of per­for­mances, acti­vi­ties, and food stalls. The main focus is on equa­li­ty and acces­si­bi­li­ty.

The high­light per­for­mance is the pop and dance band Por­tion Boys, who recent­ly came second in the final of the New Music Com­pe­ti­tion. In 2021, the band made their final breakth­rough into the public’s favou­ri­te with their huge hit “Vauh­ti kiih­tyy” feat. Mat­ti and Tep­po. The band and applied for a place as Fin­land’s Euro­vi­sion ent­ry with their latest song “Samaa tai­vas­ta kat­so­taan”. The songs have been lis­te­ned to more than 160 mil­lion times in music strea­ming ser­vices.

Eve­ry­one’s Sum­mer Fes­ti­val will also fea­tu­re other per­for­mances, inclu­ding Pön­kän Pump­pu, a group from Klu­bi­ta­lo Pönk­kä (Nuor­ten Ystä­vät), per­for­ming an ori­gi­nal and cover music with the joy­ful Moving Songw­ri­ter, focusing on children’s music. The fes­ti­val day will end by The South­ga­tes, an Oulu-based band of four young musicians foun­ded in 2021, who­se soot­hing gui­tar pop tunes have alrea­dy been heard at seve­ral fes­ti­vals and venues.

The players and officials of Oulu Kärpät’s repre­sen­ta­ti­ve team, who have been invol­ved in the event since the begin­nings of 2005, will once again bring their welco­me to the event by gree­ting fes­ti­val guests and sig­ning auto­graphs.

– The event has been in pre­pa­ra­tions since autumn, and we are loo­king forward to the sum­mer! We are deligh­ted to have new part­ners and the fes­ti­val is get­ting more and more known eve­ry year. It will once again be an event with good vibes and we are hoping for a bright outco­me, says Tar­ja Rönk­kö, Cul­tu­ral Youth Work Coor­di­na­tor at Oulu Youth Ser­vices.

The main orga­ni­sers of the fes­ti­val are the City of Oulu Youth Ser­vices, Oulu Oulun Kehi­tys­vam­mais­ten Tuki ry, Nuor­ten Ystä­vät ry, Cari­tas-Sää­tiö and Ammat­tio­pis­to Luo­vi. In 2019, the Eve­ry­bo­dy’s Sum­mer Fes­ti­val was named the most disa­bi­li­ty-friend­ly event of the year.
