Whenever I decide to travel, one of the first things I do is to check out the concerts in the area during my stay. Whether it’s an upcoming local treasure or a legendary musician visiting from abroad playing in the city, I do not want to hear about it after I’m gone again!
In Helsinki, the place to go for concert tickets is Tiketti. They have a very good website for you to use beforehand, but when it town, it’s easy to visit the centrally located ticket office in Kamppi – or check out their webshop. The ticket office work nowadays also an art gallery, so you can shop for tickets and enjoy art at the same time – a two in one experience!
In Tiketti you can find tickets for both small and big gigs in any genre; indie, folk, rap, metal, punk, hardcore, industrial, electronic music, you name it! The ladies behind the counter all know their sh..field, so don’t hesitate to ask them for recommendations according to your music taste.
Tiketti also sells tickets for various theaters and Zodiak Center for New Dance, whose programme I warmly recommend checking out.
