Joensuu's Laulurinne is a wonderful park area that is especially suitable for organizing large events. One of the most significant events held at Laulurinne is Ilosaarirock, which has been held there since 1991 and attracts over 50 000 visitors during the weekend. Another event that has become established in the area is the opening of the Finnish summer, where 6,000 elementary school students gather on Laulurinne to sing. The area has also hosted the opening concert of the Nightwish band's world tour and Farmari agricultural exhibition in 2015. Circus and Tivoli are also a familiar sight in the area during the summer.

Laulurinne is a very exceptional venue, as the area is surrounded by many event support services such as camping, restaurants and car parks. The area is also located by the lake and the distance from the center of Joensuu is only a kilometre.
