Summertime and the living is easy, and festival tickets predictably expensive. Some of us can’t resist temptation and scout from early spring for music festivals in their proximity. By the time I made up my mind about going or not to Primavera Sound Festival, which pretty much nails all the elements of the ultimate festival in terms of location, language, temperature and line-up, the tickets were sold out.

So I decided to turn my head to other options because d’uh, what else was I gonna do? Stay home like I do every summer scrolling my life away? No, let’s try and get real this time (whatever that means), see what’s going on around Europe.


And then I stumbled upon Flow Festival 2017

Flow Festival’s been happening since 2004 in Helsinki and it’s deeply focused on music and arts, especially urban spaces, visual arts, film screenings, talks, design and it takes place in a at a defunct Suvilahti power plant and its industrial surroundings very close to downtown Helsinki.

For all the lazy people out there, Spotify’s already spared us from searching for every single artist and curated a playlist. Although, it would be way better if you’d check them out one by one.

I just hope it won't rain.
