Xysma (FIN)


Xysma is a legendary Finnish band that was originally formed in the late 1980s. These days Xysma have acquired a cult following of dedicated fans, who were overjoyed to learn that the band have agreed to play selected gigs during the summer to celebrate their 30th anniversary.

Known for their eagerness and ability to constantly renew their style, over the years the band have progressed from grindcore and stoner metal to stylish, soul-influenced alternative rock. Anyone who sees Xysma live, will have the amazing dynamics of the band members as well as their head-bobbing grooves and killer guitar riffs etched into their memory for good.

We’re so pleased to welcome these guys on stage at Ilosaarirock this summer – what a rare treat to anyone who has a weakness for distorted guitars and old-school good times!
