Tuska Open Air has been around for 20 years now as one of the biggest metal festivals in Finland. We’ve been lucky enough to be able to attend to this great event a few times now (for our report of this year’s edition go here) and you can always be sure of a strong line-up in which there’s a ratio of 50-50 foreign and domestic names, both big and small. This year the festival takes place again at Suvilahti in Helsinki, during the weekend of 29.6 – 1.7.2018. They’ve just announced their third and last headliner that’ll finish the Saturday, besides a healthy dose of heaviness:
The colossal monster returns! French giant Gojira is the next big thing in metal and will be the headliner for Saturday besides Body Count ft. Ice-T on Friday and Parkway Drive on Sunday. The next generation of metal superstars. The band’s sense of style, incredible feel for riffs and uncompromised work ethics have taken Gojira to where they are now. Gojira’s latest album ”Magma” is a no holds barred thrust of power. Tuska is extremely proud for their return to the Suvilahti grounds after just two years and to announce Gojira as the headliner for Saturday June 30th 2018.
Other newly confirmed acts for next summer’s festival are Finnish doom super group Hallatar, New Orleans based riff locomotive Crowbar, Tuska alumnis Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus, always ass kicking Mokoma, Gothenburg riffmeisters Bombus, grim yet beautiful Grave Pleasures, progressive Lauri Porra Flyover Ensemble, action rockers Hard Action, melodic metal outfit Arion, crossover killers Foreseen and RED DEATH, Danish death metallers BAEST, Finnish hard rocking Temple Balls and dangerous leather metal trio Tyrantti.
