The biggest metal festival in Nordic countries opens its doors next summer for the 18th time in its history. Suvilahti event field will once again be packed of metalheads and, of course, top-notch bands for TUSKA OPEN AIR METAL FESTIVAL!

LAMB OF GOD hits the Tuska stage for the first time in the summer 2015. The band takes the festival audience by storm with their hostile and thrashy guitar works, low-pitched and crawling vocals and grinding live energy. Needles to say, moshpit will be grounded.

Justin Vernon is starting his very own music festival. According to The Current, the man behind Bon Iver has teamed up with the people behind Boston Calling to launch the Eaux Claire Music and Arts Festival in Vernon's hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin next summer. A permit for the event passed through its final round of approvals and is officially slated to take place on July 17 and 18, 2015.

Crashline Productions is setting up the logistics of the two-day event, which will take place at the Foster Farm - home of the popular Country Jam festival - located about 90 minutes from Minneapolis in a vast, remote wooded area.

No lineup has been announced yet, though organizers anticipate up to 25,000 festival goers will attend each day. The set-up includes two main outdoor stages, one 6,000-person capacity tented stage, as well as on-site camping. Vernon will curate the lineup of music and art installations.
