Provinssirock Festival 2009

Provinssirock Festival 2009 Lineup

Provinssirock is the largest international rock festival in Finland. It is being held in the Törnävä Festival Park for the 31st time from June 12th to June 14th 2009.

Opeth, Placebo and Raised Fist are among the bands that will perform this year at the Provinssirock Festival.

During its existence since 1979, Provinssirock has gone through many changes and seen its share of economic ups and downs. The number of festival goers grew steadily from the first Festival until late 1980’s, when the temporary drawbacks of the recession hit. When the Festival was still organised by Kemu ry, the Festival was the most successful between the years 1986 and 1988 – the two day event gained audience of 35,000 to 40,000. The Festival kept growing from the 1993 two day event (with an audience of 12,000) until an all time high in last summer 2008 three-day-event were sold out with an audience of 75,000 visitors!
