Sauna Metal Festival June

Planning to attend the Sauna metal festival in Tampere in June. Does anyone know the location of the venue? Is it the sports stadium? How about a hotel close by? Thanks Kathy

See the map in http://www.sauna-open-air.fi/maps.htm

The location is very central, so there are many hotels within easy distance. Try eg. http://www.omena.com/frontpage - I have not stayed there myself, but it should be excellent value. And the location is ideal for the festival.

Nettle,

Thanks so much for the info. My son is thrilled to be going to this show! You were right about the hotel It was 55 Euros per night and looked much better than some other more expensive ones!

I've stayed in Omena as well as lived in Tampere for six years. Omena should be very clean and safe. It's also perfectly situated. Tampere is a great city, especially in the summer, I hope you have a wonderful time! If you need more Tampere tips, let me know!

Just got back from Tampere and had a great time! We stayed at the Omena- walking distance to everything including the Etelepuisto where the Sauna Metal Fest took place. My husband and I toured, shopped and dined while our 19 year old son attended Sauna. I felt that it was a safe town and the people were all very friendly. The language was not a problem as most everyone spoke English to us when they realized we were American. We would like to go back again to see more of the country. My son wants to head up to Kemi to visit the roots of his favorite band, Sonata Arctica!
