Other great performers were for example Anna Abreu, Stratovarius, Mokoma, Uniklubi and Maija Vilkkumaa. On Saturday the audience had a special chance to check the band Tehosekoitin that makes the come back for this summer.

The Midsummer was celebrated quite cold circumstances all over the Finland, but it had no effect on partiers in Himos. “The weather wasn’t so bad after all. Thursday was a fair day and on Friday there was just one shower, but after that the weather has been fine”, Isomäki adds.
