Flow Festival welcomes Kraftwerk, the pioneers of electronic music, to perform a specially curated version of their 3D visual projections spectacle. Kraftwerk have been wowing sold out crowds at London’s Tate Modern and New York’s
Museum of Modern Art with respective residencies displaying all of their music from the past four decades juxtaposed with an awe inspiring visual spectacle. Alexis Petridis confirmed in The Guardian – “The quality of the music is beyond
question, the spectacles are genuinely spectacular: somehow, in a world packed with heritage acts playing their back catalogues, Kraftwerk still feel unique.”
But it’s not only electronic music legends that represent what Flow is about: emerging innovators Disclosure will also be presenting their forthcoming debut album to Flow’s expectant crowds. Additionally, Nu-Disco frontliners Tensnake, Todd Terje from Norway and the queen of deep house Maya Jane Coles will be headlining the electronic strand of this exciting mishmash of musical talent.
Flow has become synonymous with bringing music from old school legends to topical newcomers, Scandinavia’s finest and a whole host of international talent. This year is no exception as artists such as elusive Swedish duo The Knife, perform their forthcoming album to a hyped festival crowd. Alongside will be Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Solange, Mykki Blanco, afro beat hero Ebo Taylor, Karenn (Blawan & Pariah), Azealia Banks, Finnish electro outfit Sarah Kivi & Non Orchestra and Rough Trade’s favourite Swedes, Goat – with even more acts still to be announced.
Returning to the historic Suvilahti which is only a short walk away from the centre of Helsinki, the festival strikes an alluring setting for a few days of blissed-out festival escapism. Held in the shadows of a disused power station built at the turn of the century, the looming location is one of Helsinki’s most monumental architectural sites. Embracing its penchant for urban spaces and modern art, Flow’s venue sets it aside as one of the most exciting and innovative festivals of the summer.
Beyond the music, Flow offers a warm embrace of the arts, offering art displays from Scandinavia and abroad as well as showcasing art house film, cinema, lectures and an exceptional array of world spanning cuisine. There’s easily enough to keep attendees occupied, if ever spending a summer weekend in culture hub Helsinki wasn’t enough.
In honour of their landmark tenth anniversary, Flow has announced an exclusive 10% off UK ticket prices for adventurous festival-goers in search of something a little different. Flow Festival remains a unique music festival defined by its passions: award winning musical acts, pioneering arts and an ethical mindset. Prepare to be inspired,
intrigued and delighted in unexpected ways this August.
