Tuska Open Air Metal Festival, commonly known as Tuska, is the biggest heavy metal festival in the Nordics. The first Tuska was arranged in 1998 and it has grown larger every year. Nowadays it takes place at Suvilahti and the festival gathers more than 30 000 music lovers every year. Even though the name Tuska refers to pain and agony (in Finnish), it’s a joyful celebration of metal music for headbangers.
This summer Tuska celebrates its 20th anniversary. As always, the line up consists of Finnish and international big names. Also one of Finland’s most known metal bands HIM will perform in Tuska for the first time in their history.
