THE SCENE

Ruisrock was held first time in 1970 and thus, along with Netherlands’ Pinkpop Festival, is the world’s oldest still organized rock festival. Two first Ruisrocks were organized at Saaroniemi where nowadays is located Turku City Camping. In 1971 Ruisrock attracted over 100 000 people which still is the event’s record in attendance. The amount was however too big and the event was relocated to its current place at Ruissalo public park. Ruisrock has already for 43 summers collected annually tens of thousands to enjoy the festival atmosphere and follow both local and foreign top artists and international stars at the beautiful Ruissalo park.
