Event details

Holiday week of finnish tango, sauna and nature warms up third time mind and body at last week of september at Parikkala Uukuniemi Papinniemi Camping area.

Our special quest is LYZ JAAKOLA who is famous star of just released Findians documentary film. She'll lead us to culture of Findians by singing, playing and trough workshops. We can also learn her way to know nature, how listen and live in balance with it. Lyz will perform every evening with different theme.

FINtango week offers free sauna village every day. Our megamaster of tunes, DJ VILUNKI (Radio Helsinki), will make you dance when having a sauna! Vilunki knows how to start the party.

Week starts with magical VALLILAN TANGO. The repertoire of the 7-piece Vallila Tango Orchestra from Helsinki consists of classical instrumental tango pieces, waltz, foxtrot and humppa. Most of them date back to the heyday of this music in the 1930s and 40s, when Finnish dance music was played by large orchestras that had been composed and adapted with great variety and care.

FINtango week also offers trips to nature by paddling and walking, workshops and local food.

Week ends with Elotulirock festival!
