Festival of People is Equal to Everyone
Provinssi is committed to working for the progress of equality and diversity in the music industry. Therefore, we want to create a safe and discrimination-free festival environment to all our staff, partners, artists, and visitors.
Equality and diversity are Provinssi’s most important values. We want to make sure everyone has a great festival experience, and therefore we take everybody’s needs into account individually.

You can also arrive at the area by an accessible taxi. The stopping point for taxis is on Törnäväntie, about 50 meters from the gate of the festival area.
Wristbands can be claimed at the ticket sale booth. Accessible wristband exchange is located at the ticket sale booth near the main festival entrance.
Individuals needing assistance can bring their assistant to the festival free of charge. However, the assistant won’t receive a wristband of their own, but both the assistant and the assisted can enter the area with the wristband or festival ticket of the assisted person. Also, we recommend that you bring a certification of your need for an assistant with you.
The assistant does not need their own ticket for accommodation either, but you must notify us well in advance by e-mail: [email protected].
There are ramps and viewing platforms with excellent visibility near the biggest stages. Please note that the platforms are only for those who need them. Assistants can access the platforms if there is extra space. The locations of platforms will be marked on the map of the festival area. Also, the platforms are uncovered to please dress for all weather conditions.
Passages and Walking Lanes
Törnävänsaari is a beautiful parkland. The area consists mostly of gravel fields and parks, forests, and large green areas. A running river is dividing the area connected by two bridges.
The passages at Provinssi are wide and level sandy roads. While raining, the terrain may be difficult to navigate in places. Routes that are more difficult to navigate have either been leveled, or it is easy to find an accessible detour on the route. Also, at the festival site, there are signs and maps to help with finding services and figuring out the festival area.
The international wheelchair symbol indicates accessible routes, toilets, and stands.
You can find lots of seats at the festival area for sitting down and relaxing.

Please note that the accessible toilets are only for those who need them.
You can find lots of free water areas at the festival grounds and you can also buy water from the restaurants in the area.
