We have been closely monitoring the corona situation throughout the spring and hoped that conditions would improve. However, with a heavy heart, we now have to announce that this year’s Weekend must be cancelled. A festival the size of Weekend cannot be organized in the current situation, we do not want to put our customers, artists and employees at risk.
Next year will be special in many ways, as Weekend, which has become one of Finland’s largest festivals, celebrates its 10th anniversary. At the same time, Weekend will get a new home in the centrally located and well-connected Käpylä sports park and in the outdoor areas on the park side of the Helsinki Fair Centre. They offer a combination of urban and close-to-nature for this event, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors and is now even easier for the audience to attend.
The 10th anniversary of Weekend is special and unique in many ways. We know that customer expectations are high and we look forward to being able to show what we have prepared. We have worked hard so that next year, after a year’s break, we can celebrate for the sake of the missed one as well.
Negotiations on the artists for the upcoming Weekend are already underway, and more information will be provided later this year. Instructions related to tickets can be found on our info site.
