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 best kept secret of Kosmos Festival, Spacetime -stage is semi-hidden in the deep woods where winding, decorated paths lead. Mistakenly considered as a chillout stage, Spacetime provides many kinds of musical experiences. Some of the wildest dance-offs have been seen in this intensive spot between the tall trees in our past Kosmos editions. There's plenty of music here to chill to, of course, but don't get too lazy... These beats are electric!
Dubbed as the main stage of Kosmos Festival, Vortex lives up to this name by showcasing some of the best talent in the psychedelic world in both musical and visual artists. The dance area is surrounded by dense forest that gives the dancers a feeling of cozy togetherness. Vortex is the beating heart of psy-trance in Kosmos Festival with a lineup of local and foreign talent from all dimensions of the psy-spectrum.
Diversity is the name of the game in Gravity -stage, with a lineup of techno fit for the forest, live acts, drum'n'bass and a whole lot more. For several years, Gravity has given us completely new experiences in dancing under the Finnish sky. The stage has been completely redesigned for the 2019 edition of Kosmos Festival, taking into account all the tips and tricks we've received from our Kosmonauts in the previous years.
Born out of popular demand, there is a black hole in the deep woods of Kosmos Festival area. This hole sucks you in and spits you out with little to no mercy. Levitation Station is all about a wall of well-curated noise that elevates you to a godless galaxy of bigger and bolder, rougher and tougher sounds. In other words sucker, there is no other!
Enjoy the shows! Be amazed by the fire!

Oozing with musical genius, Asteroid is the home of the original psychespugeprogedelic groove. One of our more recent additions to the Kosmos Festival stages, this one is dedicated to both the style of music that gave a kickstart to most of the other sounds that we present in Kosmos Festival, as well as the finest of Suomisoundi we have to offer in Finland.
