Tuska Open Air Festival 2013, Helsinki, FinlandTuska Open Air Metal Festival is fast approaching… okay it’s actually seven months away, but still, the anticipation is building! Today the organizers of the fest have added 12 new acts to the lineup already consisting of some pretty awesome acts!  Those groups aside, there are several bands on the fest I’ve never heard of which possibly makes for a lineup that will bring exposure to some great talent previously existing only in the dark.

The full list of bands are below but some standouts I’m really looking forward to seeing personally are Testament, King Diamond, Bolt Thrower, Wintersun and Ihsahn. Who the hell knows how Asking Alexandria got on the bill but I’m kind of glad I’ll be able to schedule some time to take a leak and grab a beer. As for Nightwish, I’m sure their fans are anxious to see if they’ll even have a singer at that time.

I’m looking forward to the announcement of some of my favorite Finnish local acts. (Anyone who follows this site knows who I am talking about) I’ll be at this year’s fest, so if you see me there, let’s get a drink!  Here’s the lineup so far:

  • Nightwish
  • King Diamond
  • Testament
  • Bolt Thrower
  • Amorphis
  • Stam1na
  • Wintersun
