tuska festival 2021

The Press Release:
Even heavier and blacker than usual, we have to announce that Tuska 2021 will be cancelled due to coronavirus. The pain-sized festival is not erected at the turn of the hand, but the time of preparation is measured in months and even years. We want to offer the best possible festival experience for Tuska visitors from all lawsuits: from technical implementation to music and from food supply to side program plus everything else. Now comes the time that we could organize a festival that matches our expectations and the audience. So called. the amount of fox is high. We would have liked to have wagged our hair this summer in Suvilahti with you.

The sun is shining into this catacomb: Tuska’s 2022 planning has begun and the artists have a very strong urge to play, so we believe that the program will turn out very interesting. Next time the Tuska festival will be celebrated in Suvilahti, Helsinki on 1.- 3.7.2022, and three days tickets are on sale. Tickets are sold by 2022, 2022, and 2021: https://www.tuska.fi/liput Tickets purchased for the 2020 and 2021 Tuska Festival are eligible for 2022 as such. The best thing a Tuska visitor can do to support the event is to use the purchased festival ticket next year. If you wish, you can also return the ticket to the place of purchase by 31.8.2021 Ticket stores will be contacted by email to customers who bought tickets as soon as possible. This is how it went, but your fist is up – we hope you’ll be there! ✊

“Moon Knight” #1

The mysterious Mr. Knight has opened his Midnight Mission, his people petitioning for protection from the weird and horrible.

But while Khonshu languishes in a prison that Moon Knight put him in, the white-cowled hero must still observe his duty: protecting those who travel at night.
