Ilosaarirock Festival takes place in Joensuu, a city that is easy to reach both on one's own means and by public transport.

Remember that green attitude starts with small deeds: pack your car up with friends instead of driving on your own, or use public transport! Various organisations around the country also arrange coach rides to Ilosaarirock.

The festival site is at Laulurinne (street address: Linnunlahdentie 3), which is about one kilometre from downtown Joensuu. The Joensuu railway station and the bus stops to Ilosaarirock Festival are about two kilometres from the festival site. Ilosaarirock, or ”Rokki” buses, which are free of charge, run between the railway station and Laulurinne.
