The three-day event, which was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, will return to Helsinki, Finland between August 12-14. It’s set to host around 150 artists at the historical Suvilahti, a former power plant area in the city.
Today (March 16), organisers have unveiled a bevy of new names for the festival. Alongside Jamie xx, JARV IS…, and Gibbs, other acts added to the bill include Aldous Harding, Acid Arab, Antti Autio + Jouset, Malla, Ege Zulu and Louie Blue.

Tickets for the cancelled 2020 and 2021 editions of Flow Festival will automatically be accepted for this year’s event. Additional three-day passes are available to purchase here for €205 (£172).
Reviewing 2019’s event, NME wrote: “Helsinki’s Flow Festival isn’t really like other festivals. It was one of the first on the planet to become carbon neutral, it takes place in a power station and is as much about the unusual and niche as it is the mainstream.”
Forwards will take place on Clifton Downs in Bristol from September 3-4, with 60,000 people expected to attend over two days.
