Festival Audiences in Finland: Helsinki Festival, Joensuu Festival. (English summary)

This is a third part in festival audience ”trilogy” research series covering various types of major Finnish festivals. While the first two reports dealt with events that represent only one particular art form, i.e., music, theatre or dance, in this third report attention is drawn to festivals that host a selection of art forms simultaneously and are therefore described as general festivals. The festivals studied here are the Helsinki Festival and the Joensuu Festival.
