An increasing number of theatre and concert tickets include a public transport ticket. This means that your event ticket doubles as a Föli ticket.
Tickets to these events function as Föli tickets, allowing the ticket-holder to travel on Föli buses and water buses before and after the event in question without the need for a separate bus ticket. The Föli bus ticket included in an event ticket can be used for three hours before the performance in question and two hours after it. Each ticket can be used for a total of four trips, meaning that you can transfer between buses once each way, if necessary.
Föli operates in Turku, Kaarina, Raisio, Lieto, Naantali and Rusko, with the same tickets valid in the entire operating area.
Turku City Theatre on the bank of the Aura River wants to provide low-threshold services and ensure that people find the theatre easy to visit. That is why it started a new kind of cooperation experiment with Föli in September 2018. Since then, Turku City Theatre tickets have also included a Föli ticket. The experiment was greeted with enthusiasm and the cooperation is set to continue.
Today, Turku City Theatre tickets are quite the allrounders, as the event ticket also functions as a cloakroom ticket in addition to a bus ticket. Forget the hunt for a parking place and let Föli bring you all the way to the entrance of the theatre!
PLEASE NOTE! The Föli ticket is not included in tickets to summer comedies performed at Emma Teatteri.

Top Finnish and international classical music artists will be performing at the famous Music Festival in Turku in August. The cooperation between Föli and Turku Music Festival started in spring 2019, and concert tickets to the festival serve as bus tickets once again.
Dynamic variations echo in Turku Castle and cultural homes host intimate concerts in Turku – the oldest music festival in Finland is celebrated throughout the Turku region in August. Your concert ticket allows you to travel to events. You can take the Föli waterbus to events in the Ruissalo Shipyard, for example!
Turku Music Festival, which has been organised every year since 1960, is held in August, but the festival also offers events outside the festival season in August and the summer months. Concert tickets double as Föli tickets for concerts held outside the summer season as well.

Location: Several venues in the Turku region. Please note that Parainen is not part of the Föli area, due to which Föli tickets are not valid for trips to Parainen.
From autumn 2020 onwards, Åbo Svenska Teater tickets will also double as Föli tickets. The oldest theatre building in Finland is a genuine pearl at the corner of the Market Square. The theatre experience begins as soon as you step inside the 19th century building. The small yet grand theatre has an extensive repertoire for theatre-goers both big and small.

Founded in 1978, Turku Youth Theatre is a professional youth theatre offering a programme primarily aimed at children and young people. In the summer, the theatre produces musical comedies for adults. This year’s programme is particularly vibrant, featuring Turku-Tukholma (‘Turku-Stockholm’) written by Marika Vapaavuori and directed by Pekko Honkasalo, taking the audiences on a journey across the waves of the Baltic. This ship has been filled right up to the upper deck with romance, musical numbers, and mishaps. Who will find their missing piece? Who will find fulfilment? Is there still life in the old dog yet?
Location: Uittamo Dance Pavilion, Rykmentintie 29 (on Föli route 9)
Visitors can also eat at the pavilion, with restaurant services and table reservations provided by Mauno Catering. For further information on dining, please see https://uittamopaviljonki
