Lineup finished, schedule out!

The lineup for Ilosaarirock 2019 is now ready! New artists include Alcest (FRA), Beast in Black, Lost Society, Eva + Manu, Jesse Markin, Huora and many other. Check the schedule and get ready for the best weekend of the summer!

French Alcest is one of the developers and important artists of blackgaze, a combination of black metal and shoegaze. Their atmospheric music is also called post metal. In the early years Alcest played primitive black metal but soon the music became the gigantic symphony of distorted sounds we know today. Alcest has worked with Sigur Rós and toured with Anathema and is known by their intensive live shows.

Along Alcest Finnish power metal phenomena Beast in Black, thrash metal group Lost Society and punk rock band Huora brings more heavy guitars to the Ilosaarirock lineup. The program is completed by hip hop acts Etta, F, Adikia and Mouhous, producer legend Jori Sjöroos, folkpop duo Eva + Manu, indierock bands Pasa and Radio Supernova, talented urban singer Jesse Markin and modern pop artists Ruma and Aida.

As over 60 bands aren’t enough, we also present international standup comedians Joe Sutherland and Bobby Mair. British Joe Sutherland is known by his razor-sharp comedy about masculinity and gender. Canadian Bobby Mair has won over the critical London standup audience and is now ready to conquer Finland.

Remember to buy your tickets before May 31st. In the beginning of June the ticket prices are updated to more expensive summer prices!
