The festival is hosted in mid-June at the Park of Tornava Island across four to five stages. Here’s a tip - You can best enjoy it at midnight because the sun doesn't really set at all in the summertime in this part of the world.
Tangomarkkinat (or Tango Festival)
Over a million people experience it live on the streets and more than one and half million watch it live on television. Tango Festival is celebrated during the first week of July, usually from Wednesday to Sunday because this is also the prime time of holidays during the year. You should also find time to enjoy the Tango Parade with the musical concerts, and it is best to go to it prescheduled so as to get the best possible experience there. Central to these happy proceedings is the coronation of the Tango King and Tango Queen. These two celebrities get as much limelight for the next few days as do Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Oscars. They make headlines of the next day’s newspapers for receiving recording contracts and for performing their shows at the Tango Festival the next year. This iconic festival is celebrated with a combination of different musical genre every year and this is what makes it so different from all other music festivals across the world.
