Comments the Organizator:
The history of Lankafest starts in 2010 when the event was held in the gym of local elementary school with four local bands. It was an instant success! Event was held again in 2011 at the Keskipisteenpuisto with the power of eight bands. In 2012 Lankafest took place on the brand new stage of Pohjanportti. The lead performer was a legendary Zero Nine. In 2013 Lankafest took another step by selling over 400 tickets and the lead performer was once again one of the legendary finnish bands Peer Gunt. Like it or not: Lankafest is here to stay!
