Ruisrock completes its 2023 line up!

Ruisrock Festival Finland 2023 news

In addition to the Ukrainian rapper ALYONA ALYONA, new names to Ruisrock’s lineup include genre-bending artists such as SAMULI PUTRO and MELO and several special live lineups. The final music program features more than 120 artists!

Ruisrock has added the finishing touches to its international program with Ukrainian rap artist ALYONA ALYONA. Advocating especially for the liberation of her home country, the artist speaks out boldly and says that each of her songs comes directly from the heart and contains either a social or a political message. Rapping in Ukrainian, Alyona Alyona creates music that borrows elements especially from American and British hip hop, creating a unique blend with a powerful message, a fresh approach to music and fantastic feminist energy.

It feels amazing to bring the magical world of Ruisrock to Ruissalo for what is now the 52nd time in just a few weeks’ time. Our exceptionally vast lineup will spread over six stages and feature music across genres and national boundaries, and because of this, we are inspired to present a Ruisrock that is more amazing than ever
