Welcome to Kosmos Festival 2024! Are you ready for FOUR days of music, art, workshops, circus, and sweet crazy friendly people in an atmospheric setting of the Finnish forest?

Kosmos Festival offers a whole lot of program and a full on bazaar for your shopping, food and drinks needs, but we want to highlight the joys of camping in the area. 

There is a beautiful lake at walking distance with swimming and sauna possibilities and family camping as well.

Kosmos Festival is a gathering of a wide variety of people. The program offers anything from wild drum’n’bass and techno to all kinds of psytrance and, of course, our national heritage – suomisaundi.

The newly organized Oasis area is all things relaxing, educational and healing. Live bands and circus shows offer organic enjoyment as a balance to the electronic program. All in all, you have endless possibilities to enjoy your time, meet loads of new people and get in touch with the forest spirit.

Kosmos Festival 2024 is sold out. Information about bus tickets, caravan and family camping spots can be found on the info page.

The lineups will be announced in the beginning of April! Be sure to get to know the program, as it’s wide and diverse!

50 DAYS TO KOSMOS FESTIVAL

It’s getting closer! We’re definitely excited, hopefully you too. To celebrate this, here’s some news: SAMURAI BREAKS (UK) Added to lineup! The absolute don of modern UK bass music is coming to play in Finland for the first time! Samurai Breaks is all over the place, one of the most interesting up-and-coming names in...

The Levitation Station stage at Kosmos offers hard and fast beats. Today we are introducing a Hard NRG artist joining our lineup from Bournemouth, England – Aeon. How is the UK Hard NRG scene doing nowadays? – Digitally I see Hard house NRG/Schranz labels continuing to push the sounds, with success, but I’ll admit...

Levitation Stage is managed by Joni (DJ Haemaerae) and Juho (Decion). How’s it going? How has the year started? JONI: It has been busy as always with Levitation Station, and also in the Hitech team! Deciding the musical course of the year and selecting best possible acts to our small stage is daunting task,...

We avoid calling it “the main stage”, but Vortex is definitely the heart of the festival from the very first minutes until the closing ceremony. Olli and Mia, also known as Miazu & Polly – Sangoma Records, run the stage so let’s ask them how it’s done! There are hundreds of festivals focusing on...

INTERVIEW WITH ANNI & MILKA, Kosmos Festival Circus

Hello Anni and Milka! First, could you introduce yourselves? What do you do at Kosmos and in real life?

- Hello! We are the producers of the Cosmic Circus stage and have been part of the Kosmos family since the first year in 2014, initially as performers. Anni started working on the stage production in 2015, and Milka joined in 2016.

Anni: In real life, I teach circus and dance, and of course, perform with fire!

Milka: I balance between being a science nerd with my university studies and performing with fire, aerial acts, and occasionally ropes.

- Our main team this year includes DJs Djane Crystal & Papa Psy, Antti with lights, our ringmaster Katja, and our lovely stage managers, not to forget our amazing artists!

Circus arts have played an important role at Kosmos Festival and its immersion throughout the years. Why do you think this is, and how did you end up bringing circus arts to Kosmos Festival?

- In the first year, we were all just area performers. The Circus stage was a dream of J.J. Green, who built it up in 2015. Initially, we had a smaller dome, but we soon realized that we needed a bigger one to suit the needs of our artists. The bigger dome was built in 2018, and we've been rocking it since then. We have managed to become the festival with the most fire arts in Finland! And of course, we want to have the best place to perform with fire since we are fire artists ourselves! Every year we have more than 70 performers from multiple disciplines sharing their art!

Circus arts can be seen all around Kosmos Festival. What's on the menu this year? What's the most exciting thing, in your opinion, about this year's festival?

- The whole circus stage was originally built with fire shows in mind, and this year we have 12 amazing fire shows worth checking out, in addition to aerial, acrobatic, and LED acts that will leave you gasping for air.

- Because we are out of space at the Circus area, one act was moved to Gravity last year. The wheel of death is going to be back this summer! We hope we can slowly take over all the stages 😄

- You also never know what roaming creatures you might run into while adventuring around the festival grounds, so watch out!

Thank you! See you at the cirkus dome!

INTERVIEW WITH ALEK SZÁHALA

Continuing with the harder side of our lineup, we’re proud to introduce the legendary Alek Száhala, who will be rocking on the FINRG Recordings side of Levitation Station.

Hard NRG has fallen a bit to the margins of the Finnish electronic music scene since its glory days in the 2000’s. Do you think it is due for a comeback?

- I don’t think that Hard NRG in particular is making a comeback as, at least yet, but harder electronic music in general definitely is. When the Hard NRG and Freeform scene died somewhere in early 2010s in Finland, it was replaced by hardstyle and hardstyle only. Recently the harder electronic music events have seemingly diversified their selection of music from hardcore to J-core and hard techno, and I’m pretty sure they could easily fit some Hard NRG into their lineups, too, and that it would be well received.

How is the NRG scene abroad these days?

- Harder electronic music (Hard NRG included) seems to be on the rise in the US. I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for some time in 2022-23, and they have a very vivid rave scene with lots of great underground parties and club events, especially “So Stoked” at the DNA Lounge in SF. Many of the events are multi-genre from hardcore to hard trance, and from psytrance to riddim, but definitely hear some Hard NRG classics being played there, too, including Finnish Freeform. The crowd seems to be very open and welcoming to new genres.

- Seattle apparently has something similar going on, and of course NYC. In fact, many if not most of the new fans, promoters, label managers and DJs who have connected with me are from the US, whereas back in the days they used to be from Australia and the UK. Back then, North America was completely silent except for the French speaking Canada, so I definitely see a major change of pattern here.

- In Europe, Hungary and Poland seem to have something going on, and of course the UK has all these old names still playing regularly.

What do you have in store for Kosmos? Can we expect some nostalgic bangers?

- Of course! Some old stuff, but also some new stuff. I have been pretty active lately what comes to making new music. It’s been refreshing to make some Freeform, Hard NRG and even Hardcore after all these years.

Thank you! Alek Száhala will be pulverizing the pinewood forest of Levitation Station on Saturday at 4 AM!
