Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin (36) showed up at a rock festival. On Sunday there was widespread praise online for the “coolest head of government in Europe”. The organizers of the Ruisrock festival on the island of Ruissalo, which belongs to the southwestern Finnish city of Turku, shared the black and white portrait of photographer Janita Autio on their Instagram page.

“Legend”, commented one user, “so cool” another user. The politician is known for her fondness for rock music.

Marin confirmed the visit on her own account. There she posted a photo showing her with husband Markus Raikkonen. “Today the vacation started. Towards Turku in Finland and Ruisrock,” she wrote. She also presented some short videos of performances by Finnish artists.

It was not known whether, like many other festival visitors, she drank canned beer and took part in the usual wild pogo dances in front of the stage.
