WHAT IS FLOW?
Flow Festival is a music and arts festival in Helsinki, Finland. The next, 10th edition of the festival will be organized on 7–11 August, 2013.
The music presented at Flow is a strong and varied selection of up and coming and established artists from indie-rock to soul and jazz and from folk to contemporary club sounds, both from the Finnish and the international scene.
The historic Suvilahti, a short walk away from the centre of Helsinki, is an alluring setting for a few days of blissed-out festival escapism. Held in the shadows of a disused power station, built at the turn of the century, the looming location is one of Helsinki’s most monumental architectural sites. Embracing its penchant for urban spaces and modern art, Flow’s venue sets it aside as one of the most exciting and innovative festivals of the summer.
Beyond the music, Flow offers a warm embrace of the arts, offering art displays from Scandinavia and abroad as well as showcasing art house film, cinema, lectures and an exceptional array of world spanning cuisine. There’s easily enough to keep attendees occupied, if ever spending a weekend in culture hub Helsinki, in the middle of summer wasn’t enough.
Telegraph, 2012 - "This art-filled urban festival, on the site of an old power plant near the city center, is compact, but a lot of thought has gone into creating a variety of colourful entertainment places."
