Hellsinki Metal Festival, organized for the first time this year, found its own place on the Finnish festival grounds on the second weekend of August in 2023. More than 11,000 visitors were able to enjoy a bold and versatile lineup of performers, which also included several bands that rarely visit Finland. The official aftermovie of this year's event can be viewed here.

"We are doing this event for our audience and for our audience only, so we have listened carefully to the feedback of our visitors, and we take it into account. Our festival organization has been working hard throughout the fall so that we can make Hellsinki Metal Festival even better. The first negotiations about the performers were already underway before this summer's festival was finished, and it's really great to now be able to announce the first performers of next summer!”, the promoter of HMF, Toni Törrönen says.
