1999

The sixth Oulu Music Video Festival took place 26-29 August 1999. In addition to a contest for Finnish music videos, there were special screenings offering both domestic and foreign rarities from videos to feature films - from Jonas Åkerlund uncensored videos to the Real McCoy documentary. The battle for the Air Guitar World Championship was also fought, and the festival once again received international acclaim. The festival grew in almost every respect. A more international and extensive programme was started already on Thursday, and the festival spread to restaurants and out on the town. The number of festival visitors remained the same: an audience of nearly 20,000 people visited the festival events.
