Weekend Festival returns to its roots in the spirit of Time Machine Edition as Finland’s largest electronic dance music festival. The festival brings a wide range of stars and rising names of that genre to Espoo in August. Friday’s second headliner will be the most desired artist of the visitor poll: Alan Walker. The Weekend Festival will be celebrated on August 4-5, 2022 in a new location, Vermo event park.
Next summer, the Weekend Festival will feature concerts by popular international and domestic artists. The versatile music coverage of the festival promises a real treat for festival-goers, when the most desired artist of the visitor survey, Norwegian Alan Walker, will perform on the main stage of the Weekend Festival on Friday. Next summer, Weekend Festival’s stages will also feature a comprehensive bunch of the hottest DJ names of the moment. In addition to him, the main performers at the festival will be Martin Garrix, the Dutchman who has been crowned the world’s best DJ four times, David Guetta, the French DJ legend and three times the world’s best DJ, and Dutch DJ Hardwell, who has twice won the world’s best DJ vote.
“Weekend Festival listens and prioritizes the wishes of the festival crowd when it comes to the selection of artist coverage. This year, the desire for electronic music was clear, so let’s go with that. Among the 20 most wanted artists, we have 8 artists performing next summer. Electronic and dance music are currently on the rise in the UK and Central Europe, and widespread interest has reached Finland as well. In the darkening evenings of August, the visually impressive light and laser effects come into their own – after all, the Weekend Festival has always been known for its spectacularity.” says Weekend Festival’s Marketing Manager Atro Anttila.
According to a survey conducted this year, the top DJ Alan Walker, who will take the main stage of the Weekend Festival, is also the main performer most desired by the festival goers. The Norwegian DJ has made hundreds of millions of streamed songs with star artists such as Ava Max and Sabrina Carpenter. Walker’s biggest hit, Faded, has been streamed 1.7 billion times on Spotify alone. Walker has danced Weekend Festival visitors three times before in Finland, most recently in 2019. In addition, he has performed at Weekend Festival Baltic three times and at Weekend Festival Sweden once.
