WHERE: Helsinki, Finland
WHEN: 04 – 05 August 2023
Tired of the usual holidays, all sun, sea and beaches? Want to escape the oppressive heat of the city? The Europe of the North is ideal in August, thanks to a rather pleasant climate.
The protagonist of the month is Finland which, during the first week of July, hosts the Weekend Festival. This year’s edition will feature the town of Espoo, only 10 km from Helsinki.
Born in 2012, today it is the reference point in the European EDM (Electronic Dance Music) panorama. An event that attracts thousands of fans, thanks to a line-up of extraordinary impact that unites guests of international renown with emerging Finnish artists.
The result is a fresh, young and fun festival that ranges over numerous genres of electronic music. A particularly beloved and successful event which, over the years, has received several awards. Of these, a nomination for Best Medium-sized Festival at the 2013 European Festival Awards along with some “sacred monsters”. In the same year, YleX listeners voted for him as the best summer festival in Europe.
The 2023 edition (Time Machine) will mark a return to origins. and it’s going to do it in a really big way by bringing together the most important DJs from all over the planet!
