Bättre Folk festival

Bättre Folk is an iconic hipster festival specializing in new music and literature.

In addition to new music and literature, the festival area has restaurants and bars serving local food, organic wines and microbrewery beers, as well as several saunas and spas that are freely available to the public.

Bättre Folk will take place on July 14-15, 2023 in Marjaniemi, Hailuoto, practically in the middle of the sea. The age limit for the festival is 18 years and the festival area as a whole is a drinking area.

Hailuoto is a young island. Its highest points rose from the sea barely a couple of thousand years ago. Land uplift, which is essentially related to the island's history, still continues, and in time, Hailuoto will catch up with the mainland.

Better Folk is not quite a young festival anymore. It was held for the first time ten years ago, but then there were only a handful of people in the audience. Over the years, Bättre Folk has grown almost big. This year, around three thousand visitors are expected for both main days, i.e. Friday and Saturday. That's quite a lot when less than a thousand people live permanently in Hailuoto.
