DATE: June 22-23 2012

PLACE: The place is a course center called Enä-Seppä, about 45 kilometers from Helsinki, Finland. It's a nice place next to a lake.

HOW TO GET THERE: There is a festival bus from Helsinki downtown for festival guests, going both ways, both days.

ACCOMODATION: Bring your own tent! 10 EUR / tentplace. There is also a hotel 10 km from the festival site http://www.elohovi.com/

TICKETS: Presale starts in May, the price is then 10 EUR/day or 15 EUR both days. The price will be higher from the door.

I don't own a car, but I can at least join you and figure out which bus goes there. And probably some people will be driving there and back too at that time. I'd prefer sleeping at home too, with a shower and all that.

And great that you're coming to Helsinki, btw! You probably mentioned it at some point, but it was a while ago I think? We'll have to hang out. I'll show you my hood. :D

I think the tickets are around 10€ per day, I'll let you know when we decide that for good. Also I'm pretty sure that we'll get some transportation from Helsinki and back.

I checked them out on Facebook. Great drummer and guitarist.
Christian band? (not that it really matters) Played in other bands?
Hardcore from finland doesn't seem that common.
