Antti Tuisku (FIN)

Antti Tuisku

Unless you've been stuck on a desert island for the past decade, you have most likely heard of Antti Tuisku, undoubtedly the biggest pop sensation Finland has ever seen. Tuisku became a household name after winning the Finnish version of Pop Idol in 2003, after which he has released eleven gold and platinum selling studio albums that have consistently reigned at the top of the charts. Despite his relatively young age, Antti Tuisku is already a veteran of the industry, routinely gobbling up the most prestigious Finnish music awards and selling out concerts in a matter of minutes. This man is a bona fide superstar with an incredible ability to regularly reinvent himself and churn out killer hits that inevitably become the nation’s favourite party anthems.

In 2018, Antti Tuisku dropped a bombshell with the announcement that he would be taking a break from performing for an undetermined length of time, leaving his devoted fanbase in a state of shock. This year, however, Finland’s one true pop demigod is ready to break his radio silence and re-emerge in all his glory at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. Prior to this stadium-size spectacle in August, Antti Tuisku will treat Ilosaarirock to a show to remember. It’s time to release the beast and get ready to party like there’s no tomorrow!
