GALLERY: 5.8.2023 Saarihelvetti – Day 2 @ Viikinsaari, Tampere


August in Finland also means it’s time for us to head out to Viikinsaari in Tampere for Saarihelvetti for another summer festival run! This year, Saarihelvetti took place on August 4th and August 5th and boasted bands like TURMION KÄTILÖT, MOONSPELL, DECAPITATED, DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY, and many more!

The festival’s ground unfortunately didn’t have much time to recover come night time and the persistent rain, made it much more muddy. Thankfully, it didn’t really affect people’s mood, as the festival goers all seemed to be happy. The second day of the festival was full of minor technical difficulties, as a result, ONE MORNING LEFT only got to play two songs in their set – we hope to catch them some other time!

We were glad, however, we got to see many excellent performances ranging from FEAR OF DOMINATION, CRYPTIC HATRED, and HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY to LOST SOCIETY and TURMION KÄTILÖT. STEREO TERROR DJs were the act to finish off the festival in a raving afterparty to a full-house.

Overall, Saarihelvetti attracted 5200 people; a record once again! We hope to attend the festival’s next edition as well, but for the meantime, check out our photo gallery here…
