Suvilahti Helsinki will once again be taken over by metalheads, as the nineteenth annual Tuska Festival gets going. Tuska 2016 is will see performances by such acts as Ghost, Avantasia, Children Of Bodom, Anthrax and Testament, to name a few.
Schedules have now been released. See who’s playing and when at www.tuska-festival.fi/en/schedule.
This year Tuska will also have interesting panel discussions for HMA readers at the new Solmusali Stage:
ALL BLACK – The aesthetics of darkness in metal today.
Discussing the topic are horror author Marko Hautala, researching musicians Titus Hjelm (Thunderstone) and Kimi Kärki (Lord Vicar) and editor-in-chief of Inferno Magazine Matti Riekki. Discussion moderated by Toni-Matti Karjalainen. This is in Finnish, sorry international folks.

Tuska tickets are sold by Tiketti, Ticketmaster, and Lippupiste. If you’re traveling to Tuska from abroad, check out Festicket and their hotel & ticket packages.
