Tuska 2016 Saturday was sold out. The sun and the bands gave their best to the metalheads during the festival’s second day. Brymir kicked off the main stage and one of the heaviest bands in the line-up, With the Dead, opened the tent stage. One of the most expected acts of the evening was Anthrax and they surely delivered once again. Stam1na almost blew up the packed tent stage. Saturday was closed by no other than the Grammy-winning Ghost. Ghost also brought a thunderstorm with them that sweeped over while they played.

In Solmusali Scott Ian gathered a full house when people came to listen what the old thrash legend had to say. Swallow the Sun played their exclusive acoustic set to hundred fans who were drawn in advance.

”It is great to see that metal is coming back - Old school bands are the solid cornerstone while bands like Ghost is the tip of the spear”, comments the festival director Eeka Mäkynen.

Saturday gathered in total 11 000 metalheads to Suvilahti.

Tuska will open its gates on sunday at 14:00.

Tickets are still available in Tiketti

Havok (USA) is forced to switch play times with Lord Vicar due problems with flights. Lord Vicar play 19:10 - 19:55 and Havok will be on stage 21:40 - 22:25. We are sorry for this inconvinience and thank Lord Vicar for understanding.
