Metal mecca Tuska Open Air is the largest metal dedicated Nordic festival, pulling together metalheads and guitar-sledgers for three days of non-stop moshing.
Tuska, meaning pain or agony, covers all metal styles, from punk through to progressive and back again, this year headlined by Alice Cooper, Sabaton & Lamb of God.

However, since it's been out of action, the site has been renovated for use by artists and other cultural activities, and is now home to photography studios, artists, writers, production companies and advertising agencies.
