Flow Festival is an internationally acclaimed music festival in Helsinki.
An urban music, arts and food festival held in a former industrial area of Helsinki. Its one of the more anticipated events of the year, either for the high caliber line up that never fails to impress or for the fact that locals know that its one of the best reasons to take a few days off and get dunk for 3 days right before the cold autumn darkness sets on Helsinki. Either way the atmosphere is great, with visitors in the tens of thousands (and tickets often sold out) and if you have the opportunity it offers so much variety it’s worth a visit, no matter whats your musical preference.
Tickets: you most probably wont be able to get any anymore..
..But if you are too old to climb a fence you probably shouldn’t be going anyway..
