Tuska 2011 in Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland during July 22.-24.
Tuska Open Air Metal Festival, the biggest metal festival in Finland, has changed its dates for the 2011 festival. The 14th annual Tuska Festival will be held at the new location of Suvilahti, Helsinki, during July 22.-24. The reason for this change of dates is that a certain international festival will most likely be organizing their Finnish festival in Helsinki on the very same weekend Tuska had announced as their 2011 festival dates.
Tuska Promoter Jouni Markkanen comments on the matter:
“We have decided to move Tuska to another weekend after learning about a competing festival possibly coming to town on the same weekend we had previously announced. We have taken all necessary measures, and program for the new weekend is shaping up quite nicely. First bands for Tuska 2011 will be annouced shortly”.
Tuska 2010 was sold out on all 3 days, gathering more than 33 000 metal fans in the center of Helsinki.
