If you inhabit a will to change the world, much can be done. This is the philosophy of the Riddu Riddu Festival – founded by Sami Youth in 1991 – aiming to raise awareness of indigenous people. Initially focused on reviving the local coastal Sami-culture, the week-long event quickly gained international momentum, and today hosts visitors from numerous countries and ethnicities. It provides a natural and informal arena for cross-cultural dialogue and stages a diverse programme of music, dance, seminars, art, and workshops. Welcome to a festival that prides itself on being out of the ordinary!
