Media Centre

Ilosaarirock's Media Centre (Mediakeidas in Finnish) for the press and other media professionals is located right outside the festival area, inside the cafeteria building alongside the racetrack. The Media Centre is open on Friday from 2pm to 10pm, on Saturday from 12 noon to 10pm and on Sunday from 1pm to 9pm. Your visits to the Media Centre can be work-related, but you can also visit us just to get a rest from the seething crowds.

At the Media Centre you will find a calm space for working, indoor bathrooms, wifi and festival staff to help you with any and all of your needs.

In addition to the Media Centre, you will find a small and cozy Media Area located inside the festival area, right next to Ilosaari Lounge. The Media Area offers some space for working and it also serves as a cozy space for conducting artist interviews. Unfortunately we cannot store any personal items or equipment at the Media Area.
