Heavy metal carnage in Helsinki
Tuska Open Air is one of the boldest heavy metal festivals in Europe, proudly taking over Helsinki this summer as the largest Nordic festival of its kind. Across the first weekend of July, the nineteenth edition promises to be a powerful weekend, where legendary household names join rising new bands, all in the name of heavy metal and hard rock.
Over three days, top notch bands will perform in an disused power plant, re-imagined as a festival site, where all generations will gather together and unite at a festival dedicated exclusively to metal-heads.
With a name like Tuska - Finnish for 'pain' or 'agony' - get ready for a raw, fierce and exciting experience!
Suvilahti is a disused power plant located north-east of Helsinki city centre. It's an industrial backdrop that backs up the hard edge of Tuska Open Air's stages, though the site also plays host to several other festivals throughout the year.
Suvilahti, Parrukatu 2-4, Helsinki, 00540, Finland
BY PLANE: If you're flying into Helsinki International Airport, you can take either a Matkahoulto bus or a Helsinki Airport Shuttle into the city centre.
Once in Helsinki, the easiest way to reach the venue is by Metro, with the closest stop being Sörnäinen, a several hundred meters from the site. You can also get a tram (6, 7A/7B, 8) to Kurvi / Vilhovuori, or bus 68 from the central railway station.
Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult; however, the festival does not recommend bringing little children to the festival.
