Flow Festival 2012
Aug 08– Aug 12, 2012
Helsinki, Finland (Suvilahti)

Flow Festival is a music and arts festival in Helsinki, Finland. The next, ninth edition of the festival will be organized on 8–12 August, 2012. The music presented at Flow is a strong and varied selection of up and coming and established artists from indie-rock to soul and jazz and from folk to contemporary club sounds, both from the Finnish and the international scene.

"This year’s festival timetable has now been published. You can find it here. Like last year, the audience can also create their own schedule, by logging in to My Flow with their Facebook account and choosing the artists they hope to see.
The program and timetables can also be found on the Nokia X Flow mobile app. You can download it for smartphones that are use Windows Phone, iOS or Android operating systems." Source official Site.

"As per usual, Flow Festival invites under school age children to join the festival fun with their parents on the Sunday of the festival weekend. Children between 0 and 6 year of age can take part in the Children’s Sunday with their parents who have purchased a festival ticket. The children’s sunday will be open between 2 pm and 6 pm at the Backyard venue of the festival area.
During the afternoon kids can enjoy two performances by Paukkumaissi, who bring their witty, sunny and rhythmical palette of children’s music to Flow Festival. The group’s debut album “Paukkumaissi” won the prize for the best Finnish children’s album in 2006 and their second album “Popkornitorni” was also nominated. Alongside Paukkumaissi, the children can enjoy the playful record selection of DJ Timo Tietenkin.
During the Children’s Sunday baby carriages and strollers can be brought along to the festival area, as well as children’s food and supplies. We also advise the visitors to bring earmuffs or earplugs. For safety reasons (noise and the large crowds), children should be taken home by 6pm. The festival cannot provide running water or babycare supplies at the festival area, so please take this in consideration when planning your festival visit. The Backyard venue with it’s green grass, trees, music and seats will provide an enjoyable and pleasant afternoon for kids and grown-ups alike." Source official Site.
