Steelfest Open Air 2019 Is Soon Upon Us


It’s almost that time of year again, Finnish metal festival season will be opened, once again, by the most anticipated underground black/death/obscure metal festival in Finland: Steelfest! Located in the heart of Hyvinkää, this year the festival has included an official camping area for those who would rather not be confined to the walls of a stuffy hotel. They also posted on Facebook that a few gracious locals who are attending the festival are offering a couch (or dark corner) to sleep in for those coming from far away.

This festival has really become a globally known legend. Based on a poll posted on social media, people are hailing from over forty different countries, not including the bands, to experience such an epic event here in the cold, dark (but hopefully not too cold or dark during the festival) north.

The festival will begin with a sold out Pre-party at Crafters the Thursday before the festival at 20:00 featuring Havukruunu & Kalmankantaja.
