Choose to visit Oulu during its annual Qstock celebration and be treated to packed outdoor concerts, kids' activities, fireworks shows and more. Oulu holidays are a special experience during the Qstock festival, held each summer at the end of July.
For a hotel to match the city's lively festival atmosphere, book a room at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Oulu. This hotel in Oulu, Finland, has a selection of restaurants and bars to continue the celebration in, or just choose to relax in one of the hotel's 221 rooms and suites, each outfitted with Magic Dreams beds.
Visit Oulu's celebration of rock music, Qstock
A fixture of the city's cultural calendar since its debut in 2002, Qstock has drawn more and more visitors each year for its schedule of events and concerts. Hosted in the Kuusisaari area of Oulu, Qstock runs for two fun-filled days and nights each year.
Qstock collects a veritable who's-who of rock and metal bands from Finland and beyond for a schedule of performances across several stages on the island. Each evening of the festival culminates in a fireworks display for spectators, visable across the estuary.
All ages are welcome at Qstock, with those over 60 and under 10 admitted to the festival grounds free of charge (though some conditions apply).
Stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Oulu for the festival
Located just across the river from Qstock, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Oulu provides a great spot for accommodation in Oulu during the festival. The hotel is also in a perfect position to catch other concerts in Oulu, including the slightly heavier Jalometalli festival.
After a day full of star-studded concerts and great food and drink, retire to a comfortable hotel room in the Oulu city centre for a good night's rest.
