As snow covers Finland, the land of 187,888 lakes, nature braces itself for yet another cycle of deep frost and piercing gusts of northern winds. As do people: we gather around warmth and work on our arts, crafts and other tricks aimed for the sweet summer shenanigans, the time when we shed our winter cocoons and go back to the forest to play music and dance.
Kosmos Festival is a gathering of a wide variety of people. Hypnotic techno shakes hands with freaky suomisoundi. The chill stage has been one of the biggest successes every year. Not a day goes by without next level drum’n’bass or breakbeat. We try not to call any stage ’main’, but as a result of natural force, the psy-forest-womb that is Vortex stage is the beating heart of the dancing Kosmos, showcasing a stylish, strong lineup that is hand picked for the deep forest setting.
Located in the beautiful Finnish countryside, the road to Kosmos is an experience in itself. After a 2-3 hour drive from our nations capital, Helsinki, you will arrive in the lake district of Finland where a couple of extra days around the festival for relaxation would not go amiss. The locals are delighted to see festival people around the area, and it is always a great idea to test the local delicacies of family bakeries and farms.
The festival itself provides three days of music, art, workshops, circus, damn fine woods, sweet crazy beautiful people and some of the best festival food around. Tickets usually sell quite fast, so it is suggested to catch them while you can. Camping in the area is a lot of fun, with a lake at walking distance and, of course, the Finnish Sauna.
Kosmos is a family grown around the best beats and squelches we know of. It is an extension to, or a fruit, of life long friendships. We are borne of a very special dance culture, and we would like to welcome You all to share it with us in Kosmos Festival 2019!

The womb of the festival area.
The name is something you defy here. Get elevated!
There is a beautiful little spot in the Kosmos Festival forest, slightly off the beaten path. Snug in the embrace of tall trees, laced with beautiful decor, several elf-like creatures are happily dancing to the sound of dimension-defying, earth-shattering bassdrums that only give way to carpet-bombing synthleads that rip your cerebral cortex out and take it out for a spin.
Little is there to deny that music has a power to shake us to our core, and this is exactly what Levitation Station -stage in Kosmos Festival is about. Excluding a slight breather during Saturday, when Suomisoundi -spugewizards like Suomies and Ruohotukka weave their concoctions, this snug little stage is home to a sonic apocalypse.
On Friday, UK visitors A.B and Random But Raw lead the way to the harder spectre of things, including hard/techtrance, NRG, style and hardcore. There will not be an excuse to rave your little elf-butt off to these beats, but do leave room for Saturday night in your appetite.
There are very few more immersive experiences in the world than hearing damn well produced hi-tech psytrance in a sweet soundsystem in the middle of the forest. Gotalien, Liink and Necropsycho, along with the ever-growing local crew of connoisseurs of the faster beat, will most definitely take you places. Inside and outside.
Enjoy the shows! Be amazed by the fire!
