Pariisin Kevšt

In the summer 2010, Ilosaarirock Festival witnessed a peculiar event: a band playing its debut gig to a jam-packed YleX Stage. How is it possible for an act to attract a crowd of thousands at such an early stage of their career? In Pariisin Kevšt's case, the explanation is easy: they had already released two massively popular albums, and only started playing gigs when their fan base had extended to contain just about every pop music fan in Finland. The band's perfectionism and ambition, already apparent on the albums, was felt intensely during the show, making it difficult to believe that these highly professional performers were really only playing their very first gig together.

Come summer 2012 and Pariisin Kevšt's third album: the band's members are now experienced hands at performing, and the long-awaited album Kaikki on satua has been released in February, giving fans just enough time to learn the new songs by heart. Sure enough, the word of Pariisin Kevšt's brilliant gigs has got around since the last time and their bittersweet, witty and extremely catchy pop songs have attracted even more followers, so be sure to reserve your spot in time if you want to catch even a glimpse of this genuinely mind-blowing pop sensation at this summer's Ilosaarirock Festival.
