Flow Festival Scores Skrillex and More, Unveils 2014 Schedule
Skrillex via the artist
Helsinki, Finland -- Flow Festival has added several new artists to its 2014 installment, with Skrillex, St. Lucia, and High Wolf leading the new, last-minute additions. They'll join previously announced headliners Outkast, The National, and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def). Scroll down for the full lineup.
The Finnish fest also revealed the local DJ lineup for this year's Champagne Bar, which will see the likes of Erkko & Harvest and Käki & Harri on Friday, Guggenheim DJs and Must Have! on Saturday, and the collective We Love Helsinki DJs all day Sunday.
Flow has also unveiled this year's schedule. While promoters have done a fairly good job of staggering the set times across the three main stages, festivalgoers will still face a few conflicts. Yasiin Bey's set will surely bleed into Darkside's, and The National will overlap slightly with Jamie xx and Poliça who share set times. Indie fans will also have to choose between pop and folk on Saturday, as How to Dress Well and Bill Callahan are both scheduled for 6pm. You can see the full timetable on the festival's website.
Flow Festival will take place August 8-10, and tickets are still available with three-day, two-day, and single-day tickets selling for 159€, 135€, and 89€ respectively. If you're heading to Helsinki next month, be sure to check out our Flow Festival Guide for travel tips and local recommendations.
