Flow Festival continued successfully on Saturday
The festival Saturday was sold-out and gathered 30 000 visitors to Suvilahti.
The warm and sunny Flow Saturday rewarded the expectations of many festival-goers as Tame Impala took the audience on a hypnotic journey with their unique show. Seinabo Sey enchanted with her soulful performance, and Robyn and Blood Orange wrapped the audience around their little fingers in the Lapin Kulta Red Arena. In the SEAT Black Tent, the electronic music and funk-inspired R&B talent NAO and the fearless soundscape artist Yves Tumor gave convincing performances. In the stunning milieu of the Nordea Globe Balloon Stage, Jesse Markin created a warm and relaxed feel among the audience.
In addition to music, other forms of art have flourished as well. Especially the new event space Pink Space has caused much delight. Curated by Taika Mannila and Fanni Suvila, Pink Space has seen many cross-disciplinary art pieces such as Low Income Glow, speechperformance dealing with poverty and sexual desire in a class society by Niko Hallikainen, Natalia Kallio’s thought-provoking feministic poem manifest She Needs Bigger Boots, and Magical Healing Pony II by Katri Tikkanen, an atmospheric, meditative, and calming video piece specially customized for Flow.
Flow continues for one more day. On Sunday, The Cure, James Blake, Father John Misty, Tove Lo, Modeselektor, Stereolab, Tommy Genesis, and many more will step on stage. Furthermore, Flow’s Family Sunday is full of festival hustle and bustle for the whole family. The adults who have purchased a ticket for Sunday may bring their under-12-year-olds with them from 1 pm to 5 pm to join the festival whirl to play and enjoy the music. Family Sunday includes dancing in the hilarious Skidit Mega Disko, skateboarding school, graffiti workshop, and face paintings, just to name a few fun acticities.
