Three days of personal freedom and live music – that is the atmosphere of the open-air rock festival that has been the essential part of Karelian summer since 2005. Dozens of Russian and foreign musicians are coming to Petrozavodsk to perform on two stages on the former airport field near the picturesque Onego Lake. Three days of live shows, thousands of viewers and tons of positive emotions!

 

Petrozavodsk’s Birthday – June, the 27th 2015
As you may already know Petrozavodsk appeared in 1703, when Peter the great had founded an ordnance factory neat the bottom of the Lossosinka river. Although it gained the statues of town later, this year is commonly believed as Petrozavodsk’s foundation. The Birthday is widely celebrated. The historical center of the city becomes a pedestrian area. Lots of stages are built in every town neighborhood. Lots of concerts and performances are held. The celebration ends up with impressive fireworks on the Onego Lake embarkment.

 

White nights period – every June

Belye Nochi (as it is called in Russia) is the incredible northern midsummer phenomenon, when the sky remains light during the whole night. White Nights in Karelia are longer and brighter than in St. Petersburg. During this period the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark. Nights become light that the authorities never need to turn the city's streetlights on! You can enjoy walking with your friend all nights long.
