    This will be Amon Amarth's only Scandinavian stop this summer on 24.07.2011.

    Amon Amarth, Amorphis, Meshuggah and Turisas as well as some other shit with more being announced at a later date.

    Shaping up to be a fucking good day.

    Tuska always seems to have a good lineup.
    I can't fucking believe I've literally missed it by a day each time I emptied my bank account to go to Finland. It's definitely on the to-do list one day.

    I guess you should do some better planning! There are four stages this year and a new location. Should be better than ever.

    Never been to Tuska, thought about going a lot of times, never worked out.

    This year I'll do it though!

    Hotel, flights and tickets paid and done, ready to go :)

    Me and 3 mates from Gothenburg.

    Indeed! :) Can't wait. :loco: Flying to Talinn and spending a few days there, then looking for more things to do in Helsinki too... got a couple of days before Tuska festival starts.

    Sort of plans för Thursday (copied from a PM, might look wierd)

    Plans are sort of set for Thursday now, land at 1 pm, take the bus to the central station, then find
    Teerenpeli Kampi on Olofsgatan / Olavinkatu 2, between central station and Kamppi.
    Also hit Panimoravintola Bruuveri on Fredriksgatan / Fredrikinkatu 63, apparently located inside Kamppi.

    Check in to our hotel at 4 pm.

    After get a ferry to Sveaborg and find the brewery restaurant Restaurang Sveaborgs Bryggeri (Suomenlinnan Panimo).

    When done head back to the main land, go to One Pint Pub on Sinikaislankuja, Ruoholahti.

    After this see if we can still stand up :)

    Very good festival!
    Just got back home, feel very tired and hungover, but had a great time in Helsinki.

    How did the new location hold up in comparison to Kaisaniemi?
    Kaisaniemi seemed to be a more convenient location.

    This was my first time, but it was very VERY easy to go to the festival by metro and a short walk.

    Also the space was rather big, not sure how that compared to before.

    I was happy at least and just might return next year :)

    Guess, I should be better organized and try to save my money for events like the Tuska Festival.

    I overheard someone say that the location this year is only temporary. They plan on moving the festival back to the park.

    ^ I would like to see Tuska in Kaisaniemi if I ever get back over there. Kaisaniemi is a beautiful location and an easy walk to the hostel where I would prefer to stay. :p
    Maybe I just like the idea of Tuska in that particular park because I'm pretty familiar with that area of Helsinki. I think pretty much everything in the greater Helsinki area is easy to access by the metro or transit though.
