TUSKA 2019: A RECORD YEAR – 43 000 VISITORS OVER 3 DAYS
Twenty second annual Tuska festival, in Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland compiled 43 000 visitors over 3 festival days. This means a new record in Tuska history. Friday and Saturday lured 15 000 metalheads each, while Sunday got up to 13 000.
Program wise, the most popular acts of the weekend were of course the headliners: Amorphis, who played their current ”Queen Of Time” album in its entirety, Slayer with their final show in Finland and action rock legends The Hellacopters who closed out Sunday night. Other crowd favorites included Dimmu Borgir, Anthrax, Stam1na and local boys Lost Society. Altogether 46 bands performed at Tuska 2019.
Tuska festival underwent several changes this year: the festival was entirely 18 and over agelimit. The other new aspect was Tiny Tuska, an event for children, that took place on Sunday afternoon. More than 500 little moshers turned up with their parents to pass the metal torch on to the next generation.
Tuska 2020 will take place in Suvilahti, Helsinki during 26.-28.6.2020.
