TUSKA Open-Air festival - 30 June - 2 July 2006

Tuska Open-Air is a three-day festival held in downtown Helsinki and devoted mainly to metal (with a few exceptions, e.g. this year Friday's headliner gothic rock band The Sisters of Mercy). I was lucky enough to attend Tuska 2006 and catch, among others, two of my favourite bands: Opeth for the second time this year, Swallow the Sun for the first time ever.

Major thanks to Niklas Kuppola for granting me a photo pass and Laszlo Lenard from Hungarian metal mag Hammerworld for accrediting me! I had a great time and hope to return someday :)

You'll find a selection of my shots below. I didn't take pics of every band as I was occasionally distracted by other activities such as having a glass of cider (mmmmm..) or talking to new acquaintances :)
