Finnish Metal Events Oy is well-known for hosting the Finnish Metal Expo (see previous blog post) and Tuska Open Air Metal Festival.
Tuska Open Air Metal Festival
Tuska “Pain” Festival is one of the largest Heavy Metal festivals in the Nordic countries since 1998. The festival takes place predominantly in June and July, in the surrounding areas of Helsinki, Finland.
In 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2010; tickets for Tuska were sold out! Don’t you just find it awesome when people support the steel?
So where do the wayward souls go to for 2011? Tuska Open Air Metal Festival will take place on the 22-24 July 2011 at the new location of Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland. Four stages, over 50 Metal bands and a crowd of steel! Expect to be brutally murdered by Arch Enemy, At the Gates, Exodus, Enslaved, Meshuggah, Killing Joke, Kvelertak and many more!

Jalometalli Metal Music Festival
Live Music organizers in Oulu, Finland, got together in 2002 to put a special Metal event. However, it was in 2004 that the plan came together and the first Jalometalli Metal music festival was held with a line-up of 21 bands.
Over the years, the festival grew and has hosted several foreign bands. In 2005, Jalometalli added another feature called the Jalometalli Winter Festival.
For 2010, Jalometalli had an indoor and a mainstage. Both stages featured awesome Metal bands like Gorgoroth, Carcass, Triptykon and many more.
