Music presented at Flow Festival is a varied selection of artists from indie rock to soul and jazz and from folk to contemporary club sounds – from both the Finnish and the international scene.

In addition to music, Flow Festival is about urban spaces, visual arts, film screenings, talks, design as well as food and drinks.

Afrobeat artist, Burna Boy, made the 2022 lineup and according to concertgoers and Twitter users, the show was a blast.

Burna Boy’s fans have taken to their social media accounts to ask other fanbases to put some respect on Burna Boy’s name as he is no artist’s mate.

This feat comes on the heels of Burna Boy shutting down a 21,000-capacity Arena in Atlanta.
