Northern Oddity, Pure Beauty and woodland vibes
For two nights in the autumn woods by the seaside, a community, a universe reminiscent of childhood summer camps is created. A sleepover experience with 45 hours of music, art, and food for thought and soul.
The Superwood Festival by Ivana Helsinki takes place for the first time October 20th to 22nd, 2017.
The Superwood Festival brings music, art, expert talks and vegetarian food all under the same roof.
Open the door, step in, get a glass of sparkling and experience the entire festival
in a unique architectural space.

The Superwood Festival presents a completely new festival program content; interesting talks by reseachers, hot topics by professionals. There are 20 minute talks from a variety of academic fields giving the focused insight into the topics of today.
This is the first festival in Finland to have only vegetarian food. The festival will focus on finding the best tastes, new producers, food for eyes, mouth and soul.
The Superwood Festival will take place in the architeturally impressing Hotel Rantapuisto. Designed by Ragnar and Martta Ypyä, it was finished in 1963 initially as a training center for Pohjoismaiden Yhdyspankki bank. The hotel and its interior, still faithful to the original 60's wood architecture aesthetics, is as vital a part of the festival as the actual lineup.
Address: Furuborginkatu 3, 00980 Helsinki
