19th Tuska started in great weather with lots of sunshine and warmth. Avantasia just closed the first festival day and for the first time in Tuska’s history the headliner played until midnight. Also a brand new Helsinki Stage that was built in a tent allowed for example Behemoth to present their impressive The Satanist show involving lights and pyrotechnics. See few highlights of the day in full article.

Tuska 2016 has started nicely and the weather couldn't be better! Testament is just finishing up their set at the mainstage and Behemoth is ready to begin their the Satanist -show. There has been a lot of other great performances as well, such as Lordi's The Arockalypse 2006 Redux Show, Kvelertak's energetic show on the Helsinki Stage and Man With the Mission's playful show at the Kattilahalli. Also the sauna has been hot and the drinks cold the whole day. The day is far from over though, the aforementioned Behemoth is starting any minute, Beast in Black is also ready at the Kattilahalli and Avantasia will close the evening.
