FLOW FESTIVAL 2015By tyttial | 19.8.2015
Music is a source of inspiration for us. This summer, among other songs, we have been listening to Flow Festival’s playlist very frequently at the office. Flow Festival is an annually held urban music festival in the old industrial area of Suvilahti, Helsinki, not far away from the city centre. The festival is not only about music; it’s also about art and great food. Once again there were several good gigs so it was hard to find the time to eat and just enjoy the beautifully designed area.
It’s difficult to decide which gigs were the best as there where so many good shows. This year Flow had several talented female artists with great voices, such as Seinabo Sey, Florence + the Machine and Mirel Wagner to name a few. Also the energetic Elliphant had an amazing show. Among other really powerful performances were the shows by Future Islands and Foxygen and last but not least Paperi T, who never lets you down.
This year Flow had various great bands and artists from different music genres. Florence + the Machine had an amazing show on the Main Stage as well as Belle & Sebastian, who I have been waiting for years to see live. I could have just sat and listened to The Space Lady’s psychedelic synthesizer songs and covers at the Voimala stage for hours. Jukka Nousiainen had a memorable gig, and it was great to finally see him play live since his c-cassette has been one of the most listened albums in my car this year.
