CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS AND COVID-19 PASSPORTS
Etnosoi! festival procedures regarding Covid-19 passports and other restrictions vary from concert to concert, based on each venue’s own practices and prevailing restrictions. We will updated this page with the latest information affecting our festival.
Concert halls and libraries (Savoy Theatre, Malmitalo, Vuotalo, Sellosali, Oodi)
At the moment coronavirus restrictions do not cover libraries or concert halls, so the Covid-19 passport is not in use at Oodi, Savoy Theatre, Malmitalo, Vuotalo or Sellosali. Masks are recommended. (Updated Oct. 18, 2021)
Bistro K (Kapsäkki Music Theatre)
Bistro K at the Kapsäkki Music Theatre closes at 10 pm, and therefore does not require customers to show a Covid-19 passport. The restaurant has about 70 seats, and each customer must have their own seat. Masks are recommended. (Updated Oct. 18, 2021)
The Covid-19 passport is in use at Siltanen, which enables the bar to remain open until 3 am. Covid Certificates for residents of Finland are available from the My Kanta website. To obtain one, a customer must have either completed an approved course of Covid-19 vaccination, certification of a negative coronavirus test result within the previous 72 hours or a certificate of recovery from Covid-19 within the previous six months.
Be prepared to present your passport at the door, either by showing the QR code you’re your phone or a printed copy of the certificate. The phone screen should be brightened to facilitate reading of the code. Besides the Covid Certificate, you must have a valid photo ID. (Updated Oct. 18, 2021)
