Provinssirock Festival on Wikipedia

Provinssirock is one of the biggest rock festivals in Finland. It takes place in the city of Seinäjoki in Southern Ostrobothnia, Western Finland. The 3-day (some years only 2 days) festival, which starts the busy Finnish rock festival season, has been held every June since 1979.[1]

The 2007 festival enjoyed a combined three-day total crowd of 55,000. In 2008 Provinssirock was organized on 13-15 June, and was sold out with a combined three-day total of 75,000 attendees watching world-famous bands and rock artists such as Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Nightwish, The Sounds, Billy Talent and Serj Tankian.[2] Provinssirock was also sold out in 2011, when there were over 84,000 attendees.
