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.

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