Tuska Festival 2022

In the coming weekend, the fans of heavy metal will be able to enjoy a good selection of their favorite music as Tuska Festival 2022 arrives in Suvilahti. This is a highly anticipated event for lovers of heavier music as it returns to the summer festival program after a three-year hiatus.


History of Tuska festival

Tuska Festival is the largest metal festival in the entire Nordic countries, which also has quite long history. The first festival was held as early as 1998. At that time, the two-day festival was held as an indoor event in Tavastia, from where the venue was transferred to VR’s warehouses for two years. Tuska 2001 was held in Kaisaniemi Park, where it turned into a three-day event. Tuska moved to its current location in Suvilahti, Helsinki, in 2011.

Tuska’s attendance record to date is from 2019, when the event was visited by about 43 thousand spectators during the weekend. The number of spectators has been growing in recent years, as the 2016 Tuska Festival had a total of less than 20,000 visitors.
