In Finland We have Finnish Diabolo Association that organizes Finnish National Diabolo, Yo-Yo and Kendama contest every year since 2009 with Finnish Yo-Yo association and Sirkus Supiainen. Contest is open for everybody and you can win the contest but the highest ranking Finn get's the Finnish Champion title. Usually this event has happened in second week of July but this year We still haven't had the contest. I believe We'll have 2017 Contest during this year. At least I would hate a lot of skipping a year in a great event like this.

Finnish Diabolo Convention / FDC2017 High - Low - Goal - Crush - Bane
« on: August 22, 2017, 08:41:01 AM »
After FDC2017, I figured I might as well do the old "High - Low - Goal - Crush - Bane" thingy.

      - A great venue for the festival.
      - That our headliner guest stayed in Eräjärvi from very late Wednesday till Monday. thank you so much Etienne and ,Théo
      - The whole freakin gala show, and especially Viljami for his new yoyo work, Huge love for him. Just Awesome!  Theo and Etienne were really amazing as well. Just superb gala in every sense.
 - Sauna and the lake... nuff said.
- and all the concerts!!! Jukka Nousiainen, Juha Rautio, The Everybody Knows and Second Hand Apes= massive party <3
- Thursdays hike in the forest with all the mushrooms and berries... So good.
- Harri's seitan workshop <3

      - Completely missed hanging out at the gym and doing diabolo, and getting/ learning new tricks. I had no time for this.

      - stay alive for the festival. I think I barely managed in this, but just barely.  Get the new wave on running the festival with idea that everybody helps to make things happen and it worked so well. Everything was clean and done before 7pm. on Sunday evening.

Crushes: Seeing this all come together for 12th. time. Yes, this is something really special. I got crush on FDC!

      - Some regular FDC people skipped festival this year and now I am the only person who's been on all the FDC-festivals. (I really would have loved to keep this not happening but now nobody can defeat me and I alone am the Legend! ;)) But that's life, so no worries.

We had great festival and I hope we'll have this again at 2018

Now I saw Mr. Trump doing Marko's favourite diabolo trick. (and only reason for Marko to wear a tie.)

Good transalation and google speaks it fluently. Please can you do more of these translations for these tutorials. Really good!

Finnish Diabolo Convention / FDC2017
« on: March 10, 2017, 07:50:20 AM »
FDC2017 -festival (Finnish Diabolo Festival) is now organized for the 12th time at  Eräjärvi 17. -20.8.2017.
more info at:

FDC2017 guest list will be updated during the spring season of 2017 but here are some confirmed bookings.
Second hand apes,
Théo Scarito,
Etienne Chauzy,

Jukka Nousiainen
Jukka Nousiainen, Miljoonan känniviestin mies, Roskalavojen rokkitähti, will join us at the FDC2017 and play a gig for us at Eräjärvi. Jukka Nousiainen is EMMA awarded musician from Nastola, Finland.
Since 2011 Jukka Nousiainen has led the rock n’ roll group Räjäyttäjät. Slowly but surely the word has spread.
Whereas Räjäyttäjät found their home somewhere inbetween Hurriganes and Radiopuhelimet, Jukka’s solo album Huonoa seuraa has a lot more in common with classic finnish singer-songwriters such as Juice. The schlager-like qualities of the album only make it better – Huonoa seuraa was one of the most critically acclaimed finnish albums of 2014.
So let’s enjoy him while we can. Play our sorrows away at the FDC2017, Jukka.

The everybody Knows
The everybody Knows plays and messes around poorly muted and sluggish rock music with exellent singer. However, over time gestures are now less muted and sluggishness has decreased!!! This is the hot power pop band from Finland with garage punk touch. This band also fits to the FDC-festival´s tradition to give you things while they are still raw and hungry. We at the FDC-HQ know that in future this band will be impossible to see as all the gigs and c-tapes will be sold out before you hear about them.

Johan Juslin
Johan Juslin is a Finnish juggler who is a graduate from the national circus school in Montreal and he is specialized in juggling with balls, rings clubs and diabolo. In October of 2017 Johan will be joining Cirque du Soleil in the show “Corteo”, which will make an arena tour around North America

Rauli Katajavuori (Fin)
The inventor of the balanced single sided diabolo and also the inventor of the word Monobolo, Rauli Katajavuori is also the founder of FDC-festival, inventor of Diabolo state graphs and he has over 20 years experience in diabolo juggling. At FDC2017 he will present some of his diabolo juggling. And to fix history straight Rauli would like to mention that he asked Jürgen to make special balanced one sided diabolo for him, which Jürgen developed 2006/2007 and started to sell them for general public. Rauli and Laura Sariola invented the name at FDC2007 and Jürgen started to use that on promotional sale purposes and now the word is used all around the world but the balanced single sided diabolo didn’t really catch on, maybe because it is quite expensive and lacks at least 3 bearings.

Rauli has also done this thing.

The people outside of diabolo culture don't understand what is difficult or what is 'innovative' and what is not either, so this  high skill thing is not valid. Red bull might be valid but even PAO isn't getting too high scores with view count.

3 votes, having no result.

I am in!

Thank's Richard.

General / Re: exiting the sfan hyperloop problem
« on: September 26, 2016, 12:21:15 PM »
yes, you need to know which diabolo you open it.

If you would do the hyperloop, like 4A Yoyo-player would do it you would have both diabolos on same side of the string and then
'hyperloop' is basically two diabolos spinning in the same twist and then forcing this in the fan movement. Then you can open it much more easily as you would always know how to lift it open. The version with diabolos on different sides of the string is much more complicated with this 50/50 thing.

- Lenni's presentation at Diabolo Mod contest. <3

      - Too much work for just for me to do, lack of help from others, and massive mess that people left at the Festival site on sunday.

****Epic schmetterling**** (FRA)
Epic Schmetterling on ranskalainen (Strasbourg) tanssittavaa 8bittiä ja punkkia yhdistelevä bändi joka nähdään nyt ensimmäistä kertaa suomessa.
Bändi on kierrellyt soittelemassa vuodesta 2013 muun muassa Sveitsissä, Belgiassa, Tsekeissä ja Liettuassa.
Epic Schmetterling est un groupe de 8bit de Strasbourg mélangeant punk, dance et mélodies épileptiques. De la disto, des kicks et de la pop dans ta face, comme si Cascada avait percuté de plein fouet un troupeau de punks à roulettes.

****$kitso J****
Skitso J ammentaa aivojensa syövereistä illan raptarjonnan! Flowhunsa hän ammentaa nykypäiväistä Trap-räp meininkiä,
vaan biitteinä artisti tarjoilee 8-bittistä, matalantaajuuden möyrimistä, sekopäisillä nintendo arpeggioilla.
Nimensä mukaisesti läpät on semikkään-skitsot ja kyseessä on muuten sällin toka keikka!

Gameboy-musiikkia FDC-festivaaleilla! Kokeellista chiptunea vääntävä OJJ kulkee Huoratronin jalanjäljissä pelikonsoleilla tuotetun aggressiivisen elektronisen musiikin syrjäisillä suomailla. Joensuulaisartisti on julkaissut jo ainakin tusinan albumia omalaatuista konsolimusiikkia ja esiintynyt harvakseltaan valikoiduilla klubeilla. OJJ voitti toukokuussa 2014 Ilosaarirockin Rokit-bändikilpailun, jonka myötä hän nousi myös festivaalin lavalle. Tuomaristo kehui erityisesti artistin omaperäisyyttä ja mukaansa tempaavaa esiintymistä.
Jos et tiedä millaista musiikkia on kokeellinen chiptune, niin sekoita päässäsi Gershon Kinsgleyn sävellys Popcorn, Commodore 64:n pelien äänet sekä hypnoottisesti hakkaava rytmi. Lisää keitokseen annos huumoria ja huppupäinen mies farkkuliiveissään, niin tiedät mitä on OJJ!

Roman Müller (SWI), Théo Scarito (FR), Naoya Aoki (JPN), Tommi Ollikainen, Jani Suihkonen, Arvi Yrjölä, Henri Kangas, Viljami Erkkilä, Veli-Pekko Häkli, Aleksi Niittyvuopio, Valtteri Ukonaho, Lassi, and Saska Särkilahti
