Huvila is Helsinki Festival’s dedicated festival hub and a unique cross between a concert hall and a traditional festival marquee. Designed by architect Roy Mänttäri, the tent has been erected by the Tokoinlahti bay every year since 1995.

The tent comprises an atmospheric restaurant, the perfect place for enjoying the August nights pre and post-concert.

Events at Huvila are for adults aged 18 and over. The age restriction does not apply to daytime concerts and children’s events.

The performances start at 19:00 and finish no later than 22:00. Check the schedule and individual concert information on our programme page »
