Hi again. I thought to spare some time to give pointers for those of who might attend abroad, I know already that some people from Sweden, Norway and Ireland are coming for sure. ...well and many from northern Finland that is actually more expensive than for example from Stockholm First of all, don't be afraid to ask - I will try to answer if I only can. The flights etc. are most likely as easy to find for others as for me too. I will suggest to search flights to Helsinki-Vantaa airport. For example Ryanair has flights to Tampere airport but considering the train prices in Finland and time lost I would suggest to head to Helsinki unless the price difference is enormous. Second: People coming from Stockholm/Sweden: There are different possibilities depending in which part of the country you are located. Sometimes flights can be in decent prices and those are of course faster. But ferrys are also a good option. Those of you who want to consider ferry rides I have a useful tip: Join Viking Line's Viking club: http://www.vikingline.fi/vikingclubse/index.asp By doing so you will get good amount of discount for travelling with or without a car. Joining the club is free. About accommodation: This is dependent on how many people there are. With only one person some hostels can be price-wise alternatives. But in those cases I would recommend to hook with some other foreigners coming so that you will form a bigger unit. Even with 2 or more people I can then give this recommodation: Use Omena Hotelli (apple hotel) and book 4 person room, price will be about 45-60 Euros/night: http://www.omenahotels.com/en/ So relatively cheap for more than 1 person. Those are nice basic hotels with no actual staff. And most benefitial the locations are great unlike with hostels. The best choice for 3 of those in Helsinki considering the location of the venue is the one on Eerikinkatu, second best is the one on Lönnrotinkatu. So, these should give some insight. Like said I will try to answer any questions you may have.
