This year ALL tickets will be exchanged for a wristband. Festival guests with the Flow wristband can enter and exit the festival area during the Flow weekend as they wish.

Wristband exchange points

This year Flow Festival has two wristband exchange points. One point is located near the main entrance to the festival area, 200 meters before the main gates and the other at Helsinki Railway Square in the Helsinki city centre. Starting from Thursday, both wristband exchanges points will also sell all the remaining ticket types. If possible, please exchange your ticket for a wristband in advance to avoid queueing. The wristband exchange points can get crowded especially on Friday evening.

Suvilahti festival area’s wristband exchange and accreditation points (map) are situated 200 meters before the main gate near Sörnäisten Rantatie. Please note that there is no wristband exchange at the festival’s main gate, so make sure you have exchanged your ticket for a wristband before proceeding to the gates. The wristband exchange in front of the festival area begins on Thursday.

The wristband exchange point at Helsinki Railway Square (map) is located in the heart of Helsinki, next to Helsinki Central Railway Station. You can exchange your ticket for a wristband at Helsinki Railway Square from Thursday to Friday. You will also find Flow Festival’s press and guest accreditation points there.

More about the wristband exchange

  • The wristband will be applied and tightened on the ticket holder’s wrist upon pick up. Therefore, the wristband cannot be picked up by anyone else but the ticket holder personally.
  • The wristband is personal and it cannot be shared with anyone else, it must be worn during the whole time it is valid. An unattached wristband is not valid for entrance.
  • The ticket includes the name of the buyer but the ticket can be exchanged to a wristband by anyone over the age of 18.
  • Due to a limited capacity in wristbands, it is not possible to combine several one-day tickets to get a two-day or three-day wristband. For example: A one-day ticket for Friday and a one-day ticket for Saturday do not equal a two-day wristband. Same goes for a two-day ticket and a one-day ticket, it is not possible to combine them into a three-day wristband.
