Accommodation During Ilosaarirock Festival

Ravileirintä camping and Niittyleirintä camping

There are two official camping sites close to the Ilosaarirock Festival site. The Ravileirintä camping is located at the horse track lawn next to Laulurinne. The other official camping site is called Niittyleirintä camping. It is located next to the horse track, on the other side of the Linnunlahdentie road and next to the Palloilukeidas sports hall. Both these camping sites are managed by the Joensuu Pop Musicians' Association, who also organises the Ilosaarirock Festival.

The Ravileirintä and Niittyleirintä camping sites are reserved only for Ilosaarirock Festival goers and therefore only people who have a valid Ilosaarirock Festival ticket or wristband can stay there. You can change your ticket for a wristband on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at ticket change points (see map) along Linnunlahdentie street.

Water taps, campfire places, food stalls, and toilets have been arranged for the festival goers staying at the official camping sites during the festival.

Note that it is possible to stay only in tents on the camping green. Camper vans and caravans have their own designated areas on the horse track sand. Don't forget that spending the night in tents or cars outside camping sites is forbidden.

In order to be accommodated at the Ravileirintä or Niittyleirintä camping you have to fill in the accommodation form. The accommodation form will be updated here closer the festival.

When checking in to the camping area you will be given plastic bags to collect your garbage in. Please do collect your garbage in the bags and take them to the recycling points. Let's keep the area clean! If you run out of plastic bags, you can get more at the info point of the Ravileirintä or Niittyleirintä camping.

Dangerous objects and substances are not allowed in the festival area nor in the camping areas. Note that it is also forbidden to bring barbecue grills, sofas and other large furniture in the camping areas. The purpose of the camping areas is to provide a place for accommodation and sleeping, so anything that will considerably disturb other people, such as using trash bins as drums, is not allowed. Ilosaarirock Festival reserves the right to remove from the camping areas any persons who do not follow these guidelines.
