Flow Festival, the truly urban boutique city festival, has been organised in Helsinki since 2004. Since then, Flow Festival has grown from a small club event to the trailblazing European music and arts festival it is today. While the scale and breadth of Flow has changed throughout the years — more artists, more people, more everything — the founders’ original vision still stands every year: to create a festival they genuinely want to attend themselves.
Flow Festival is a carefully curated, high-quality festival with an innovative and content-driven programme that is an inspired mixture of popular culture and experimental arts. With a broad music and arts programme, hand-picked food and restaurant services, thoughtfully designed and decorated festival areas and an extensive sustainability programme, Flow has put a new benchmark on the European festival scene.
Flow Festival is one of the world’s first carbon-neutral festivals. Flow’s whole carbon footprint is calculated every year and the festival’s environmental impact is minimized via contributions to environmental projects. Also, carbon-neutral Flow seeks to minimize emissions through comprehensive environmental work.
Genre & Program
Flow Festival’s artist lineup is a carefully thought-out combination of big names in pop culture, interesting newcomers, indie artists, experimental artists, and international superstars. In total, Flow hosts around 150 performers each edition. Already performed have, for example, Tame Impala, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Solange, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and Arctic Monkeys.
