Flow Festival, the truly urban boutique city festival has been organised in Helsinki annually since 2004. Flow Festival was born out of the founders’ passion for culture. Feeling that Finland and Helsinki, in particular, were lacking a high-quality alternative music festival. In 15 years, Flow Festival has grown from a small club event to the trailblazing European music and arts festival it is today.
While the scale and breadth of Flow has changed throughout the years — more artists, more people, more everything — the founders’ original vision still stands every year: to create a festival they genuinely want to attend themselves.
Flow Festival is a carefully curated, high-quality festival with an innovative and content driven program that is an inspired mixture of popular culture and experimental arts. With broad music and arts program, hand-picked food and restaurant services, thoughtfully designed and decorated festival area and extensive sustainability program Flow has put a new benchmark on the European festival scene.
Flow Festival is one of the world’s first carbon-neutral festivals. Flow’s whole carbon footprint is calculated every year and the festival’s environmental impact is minimized via contributions to environmental projects. Also, carbon-neutral Flow seeks to minimize emissions through comprehensive environmental work.
