This year’s Tuska Open Air Metal Festival will mark my seventh year in attendance since my first time back in 2008. I’ve only missed a couple, and through the years I have seen this thing grow from a mud pit in Kaisaniemi Park to the massive international festival it is today at the dirt pit in Suvilahti Park. It’s gone from really fucking dirty, to still pretty goddamn dirty, and the crowd fucking loves it.
This year is the 20th anniversary of Tuska and from what I can tell they plan on pulling out all the stops. They’ve already announced many of the bands and just to name a few, I am really looking forward to seeing Wintersun, Apocalyptica, Suicidal Tendencies, Insomnium, Brujeria and Baptism (full list of currently announced artists below).
We’ll bring you more updates as they come along in the coming months and be sure to look for all the SkullsNBones coverage of the event again this year!
