Tuska Open Air 2017 promises to be an edition to not miss and never forget! This summer Tuska celebrates its 20th anniversary from June 30th till July 2nd and they delivered already an impressive list of names! Over the past month there has been a few more announcements of bands that are on the bill of this celebratory edition, including the headliners for the Friday and Sunday!
Finnish thrashers Lost Society and reunited Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus were confirmed and after his show at The Circus, it was revealed that we can welcome “Hevy Devy” Devin Townsend back on Tuska’s Friday. Headliner for that same Friday will be the Swedish power house Sabaton and we’ll get a very groovy ending of the weekend by the ever awesome Mastodon as Sunday’s headliners!
The day schedule goes as following:
Sabaton, Devin Townsend Project, Suicidal Tendencies, Mayhem, Wintersun, Insomnium, Brujeria, Anneke Van Giersbergen’s Vuur, Barathrum, Baptism, Trap Them, Kohti Tuhoa, Ratface
HIM, Amorphis, Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus, Mokoma, Electric Wizard, Lost Society, Avatarium
Mastodon, Apocalyptica plays “Metallica by four cellos”, Sonata Arctica, Dirkschneider, Baroness, Battle Beast, Oranssi Pazuzu
More names are going to be announced soon and we’ll of course try to keep you up to date… On a more sad note, HIM announced that their upcoming tour with the headline show at Tuska as one of the stops will be their last! So be sure to catch them, if possible at Tuska, cause a headline show in their hometown on the biggest metal festival of Finland might be something unique! Hope to see you there in about 4 months! Go get your tickets on the site soon! In the mean time enjoy their after movie of 2016:
