Flow Festival starts now! It is the largest summer festival dedicated to cutting edge indie, summer loving pop and blistering electronic music. It gathers hipsters, latte drinkers, Pitchfork readers and
Apple Nokia fanboys during four days of music, dance and Instagram instants.
Apart from the crowd pleasing international acts (Bon Iver, The Black Keys, Feist and Björk, among many others), Flow festival is a great opportunity to catch some of the most interesting Finnish acts. Insteading of following the crowds, checking out the smaller stages might reward you with surprising new music.
These are Glue’s do-not-miss Finnish artists at Flow festival 2012.

Come early on Saturday and enjoy Miau’s foolish garage rock with cute melodies. It’s all fun and will get start the Saturday party.
Raised in the Soliti label factory, Black Twig will bring some loud guitars and noise. High quality distorted rhythm music.
Aku Raski is one of the most reputed electronic music producers and Huoratron is his best known project. Intense and aggressive, his set will take your energy.
These gentle Finnish folk pop will ease your hangover on Sunday. It’s elegant and well crafted.
A few months ago this electro duo made some noise with the song Scars. If your feed don’t fail you yet, you may have a last dance to Phantom’s beats.
