Huvila 20 years

Remember Radiohead and Massive Attack? The many evenings with Eva Dahlgren? The amazing performances by Yoko Ono, Patti Smith and Laurie Anderson? What about when we raised our glasses for Gösta Sundqvist and celebrated the end of summer with Olavi Virta? Go back to the most unforgettable concerts, reminisce about the moments of joy and affection and get once more excited about the biggest hits performed in the tent throughout the years.

Emma Salokoski, Pauli Hanhiniemi, Kauko Röyhkä, Mari Palo, Tapani Kansa, Paleface, Marjo Leinonen, Antti Paalanen, Yona, Janna Hurmerinta and Sössölandian kultakurkut feat. Ismo Alanko, Ilkka Alanko and Cyde Hyttinen and many others take part of the celebration.

Neither have we forgotten the late conductor Jukka Hakoköngäs whose Olympia orchestra played as house band in the early years of the tent and provided the soundtrack for many successful evenings.

Huvila Festival Tent

Tokoinranta (Hakaniemi)
Eläintarhantie 8

Important! Please dress appropriately. The tent is not fully wind proof and may be draughty.

The Huvila Festival Tent is the Helsinki Festival’s dedicated hub and a unique cross between a concert hall and a traditional festival marquee. Designed by architect Roy Mänttäri, the tent has been erected every year since 1995 at a variety of locations across the capital. The Huvila programme, encompassing everything from intimate concerts to riotous club nights, is a valuable addition to the city’s music scene. Huvila is particularly known for its strong world music offering and for providing an early platform to lesser-known artists. Past Huvila acts include Radiohead, Cesaria Evora, Marc Ribot, Laurie Anderson & Lou Reed, Wilco, Hugh Masekela and Yoko Ono & Thurston Moore.

As the name suggests, Huvila is a tent and the weather can sometimes lend its own special charm to the proceedings. Sounds from outside the tent can sometimes be heard during performances. Don’t forget to bring a warm layer, as the nights in August can be chilly. We also ask that you arrive promptly as the seating is unallocated. The Huvila season coincides with the end of the summer season and to make the most of it, there is usually dancing on most nights!

The tent comprises an atmospheric restaurant, the perfect place for enjoying the August nights post-concert. Catering is provided by Helsinki’s highly-acclaimed Juuri restaurant.

Events at the Huvila Festival Tent are for adults aged 18 and over. Younger guests can be admitted provided they are accompanied by a guardian. The age restriction does not apply to the daytime concert.

The performances start at 19:00 and finish no later than 22:00.
