In addition to Finnish performers, Annikki Poetry Festival also regularly features high profile international performers.

The Annikki Poetry Festival has also spawned Annikki OFF, a three-day series of events around the city. The festival is organised by volunteers every two years. The Artistic Direcor of the festival is poet J.K. Ihalainen.
