ENTER HELSINKI brings new ambient art works utilising light and sound to the Central Railway Station, Helsinki Airport and the West Terminal. The first featured artists in this multiannual programme are three duos combining different art genres.

VILLE JUURIKKALA

WHO? Tuomas Holopainen is a Finnish musician known as the leader, keyboardist and primary composer and lyricist of Nightwish. Currently, Tuomas is working on Nightwish’s next album. Alongside that, he makes crossword puzzles, tends to his garden and enjoys late summer in his hometown of Kitee in Northern Karelia.

12


MY HELSINKI

www.myhelsinki.com

Musician

Tuomas Holopainen, What are your favourite spots in Helsinki? Tuomas, you live in Kitee in the region of Northern Karelia. What is your relationship with Helsinki? I visit Helsinki quite often because of work and also for fun. For instance, the Helsinki Book Fair, Cirque du Soleil and certain concerts attract me to the Finnish capital every now and then. I’m familiar enough with Helsinki not to get lost. You were born in Kitee and still live there. Why? Kitee holds my memories, peace, family and everything I need. The more I’ve travelled around world, the clearer it is for me what a lovely safe haven Kitee is. What is Nightwish up to at the moment? We just finished a demo of our upcoming album, and the idea is to devote the rest of the year to rehearsing, arranging and recording the album. We’re hoping the final result to see the light of day in spring 2020. So there is exciting buzz in the air. www.helsinkithisweek.com

How are you spending your summer? I will mostly spend my summer putting together the album but there will surely be time for traditional summer fun, too, from waterskiing to picking mushrooms and from watching a fire to reading. You have toured the world a lot. What are the most memorable concert locations where you have performed? The more exotic a location sounds on paper, the more memorable the experience usually is. Panama, Costa Rica, Olavinlinna Castle in Finland, the village of Lakselv in Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, Libanon, Enon Kanavaranta Rock festival, Kiteen Huvikeskus… There are so many. Oh yes, and the iconic Wembley Arena in London is also among the top places. Be a part of the Nightwish Story at the Finnish Music Museum! More info at www.nightwish.com

TUOMAS’S FAVOURITE PLACES IN HELSINKI: Hotel Helka is our band’s go-to place when staying the night in Helsinki. I’ve counted that so far I’ve spent a year of my life there. Restaurant Olo is a very classy, warm and inspiring restaurant where the works of art take you on a journey of tastes to your childhood, purity and happiness. Akateeminen kirjakauppa bookshop is a place where I can easily spend hours. Books create a peaceful, museal atmosphere, and Aalto Café upstairs has excellent treats. Natural History Museum is worth several visits, it is always compelling and inspiring. Ruohonjuuri shops providing organic and environmentally friendly products are probably the only thing I miss in Kitee.

With a history of over 15 years, Flow Festival showcases both world-known superstars and emerging artists alike. The programme includes also visual arts and culinary experiences. So, head to Suvilahti and the area around a disused power station, an area clad in colours and lights. EAT & DRINK FLOW Locally sourced food and seasonal ingredients are the stars of the menus of the 40 restaurants and 20 bars, be it a sushi dish, a vegetarian burger or a late-night dish. Or even a drink! Every restaurant has their own signature styles and flavours, and around half of the dishes sold are vegan and vegetarian. SUSTAINABLE FLOW Flow is a trendsetter and a leader when it comes to sustainability actions. The festival has its own responsibility program which means that environment and social sustainability are in the heart of the party. Among many, Flow runs with green electricity, and recycles and reuses all waste produced during the festival. And what’s even more important: Flow Festival is the world’s first carbon neutral festival!
