Tuska Open Air is simply the best metal festival of the Nordic countries , a three-day event held in the capital of Finland that year after year, brings together over 25,000 metal fans from around the world, an intense experience filled with music, beer and party.
The history of the festival began in 1998 with a bunch of great local bands as well as some from the two neighboring countries, Norway and Sweden. The first editions of the festival were held in a central park in the city of Helsinki. Because of its success, the organizers had to change the campus to another bigger and better equipped for the large number of visitors, which last year exceeded 33,000.
This new version of Tuska Open Air, will certainly have the same amount of visitors or more. Some of the bands of the 2012 version are: Megadeth, Sonata Arctica, Napalm Death, Exodus, Alcest, Apocalyptica, and Ministry, among more than 50 bands that will perform at the various stages and clubs that are part of the festival.

Tuska tickets cost 115 Euros for three days, 90 Euros for two and 65 Euros for one day, these are the prices if you buy the tickets in advance, but if you want to get the tickets while being already in Helsinki in one of the lockers of the event, you should consider to pay between 10 and 15 Euros more depending on the payment mode you choose.
