Originally born in 2004 as a small festival, Flow has grown to the point of becoming a reference in the Scandinavian scene in particular as well as the European festival scene in general. With tenure, a well-curated programme and a commitment to improving every year, the organizers have made this an unmissable stop for festivalgoers around the world. For example, this year, it presents art cross-sectionally and expands to the Finnish National Opera with Autobiography Edits, an awarded collaboration of British choreographer Wayne McGregor and the American electronic musician Jlin, which will be preceded by Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones’ Fractal Fantasy, a show mixing experimental electronic music and audio-visual art.
On Friday, don’t miss the always powerful and magical concerts of Erykah Badu or Neneh Cherry, two veterans on the stage. Also, Flow welcomes new stars like rappers Cardi B or Earl Sweatshirt. If skipping the main stage, you can enjoy the experimental performances by Aïsha Devi or Jlin (with visuals by Theresa Baumgarner), dance to the electronic music of Mafalda, Donato Dozzy, Eva Geist, or Ash Lauryn, and discover worlds from around the world like Bcuc, originally from Soweto (South Africa), or jazz drummer Makaya McCraven, hailing from Paris.
