Here we go metalheads… I can only assume Wintersun was added to this year’s lineup because of my glowing album review and SkullsNBones‘ worldwide recognition… okay seriously though, this is fucking awesome. I have plans which are looking pretty solid for attending the Tuska Festival this year and with Wintersun on the bill it’s adding the icing on the cake.
This will be my third time attending Tuska Open Air in six years, and each time the festival gets bigger and better. Better headliners, better press, bigger turnout, bigger festival grounds. I love covering this event because while many other European festivals are eclectic in the bands they pick, and while events like Hellfest and Wacken might be bigger, Tuska is like the underdog in the national arena of metal festivals.
Once a year, metalheads from around the world travel to the metal holy land, Finland, to participate in one of the most important events of our culture. I will be there; will you?
