Huvila Festival Tent: Venue Info

Huvila Festival Tent has undeniably become the symbol of Helsinki Festival since it was built in 1995. It is a spectacular venue in terms of architectural beauty and festival atmosphere. Situated in the heart of Helsinki by a beautiful bay, Huvila is divided into two parts, a restaurant tent and a fully covered concert tent with a total capacity of 1300-1400 (fully seating or partly standing).
