The festival ended with a range of more than interesting gigs. Yet after another three nights in a row short in sleep and days crowded with information, music and meeting musicians and managers, I was simply too tired to attend everything I had planned.

Now that was a long festival day! We started roughly at noon and returned home only after sunrise, literally.

The line up of the Tuska festival is amazing. It is vast. It is huge. It is overwhelming. And even more, the party seems to find no end. Imagine, after a long, long festival day in Suvilahti the festival area will close at 1:00 am. But this is only closing time there! Literally! Because the […]

The clock is ticking and Tuska is approaching – so let’s take a look at the line up. Udo Dirkschneider will be there! I just saw him in a music video in memoriam of someone who is perhaps rather unknown beyond Finland, perhaps even beyond Kuopio – although he played at Tuska several times: Pecu […]

The Tuska open air festival is celebrating its 20th birthday this summer, so this might be a good opportunity to look into its history. This first festival was an indoor-winter thing.
