The Helsinki festival expands its bill for 2015.
Taking place in the industrial surrounds of the former Suvilahti power plant in the Finnish capital of Helsinki from August 16-18, this year’s edition of Flow Festival already features Run The Jewels, Todd Terje and Flying Lotus on the bill alongside UK bands Florence + The Machine and Mercury Prize winners Alt-J.
The line-up just got even more exciting, as two further US hip hop stars have been added – Odd Future’s Tyler, The Creator and Drake-approved iLoveMakonnen. Joining them are BBC Sound of 2015-winning synth-poppers Years & Years, production supergroup Future Brown and the ever-controversial Diplo, who will be doing a solo set as well as appearing as one half of Major Lazer.
The festival has also added Swedish singer Elliphant and a host of local Finnish talent, including Paperi T, French Films, Lännen-Jukka and nostalgic pop-rockers Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?, whose name alone makes it worth considering a visit to Helsinki.
