DIMMU BORGIR, MONSTER MAGNET, SENTENCED Confirmed For Finland's TUSKA OPEN AIR Festival

DIMMU BORGIR, MONSTER MAGNET, SENTENCED, DESTRUCTION, PRIMAL FEAR, BAL-SAGOTH, LAKE OF TEARS and WINTERSUN are the latest bands confirmed for the eighth annual Tuska Open Air Metal Festival, set to be held July 15-17 at Kaisaniemi Park in Helsinki, Finland. The 2005 festival will once again present more than 30 bands from different styles of metal, several of which will be announced at a later date.

Saturday, July 16 will be headlined by the infamous Norwegian black metallers DIMMU BORGIR. Their Tuska performance will be one of few selected festival shows the band will do next summer. DIMMU BORGIR were originally scheduled to play at Tuska 2004 but after being offered one of the headlining slots at Ozzfest, they obviously had to cancel their appearance.

In addition to the already confirmed acts, more Finnish and international artists will be added to the roster.

Tickets for Tuska 2005 will go on sale April 1 through Lippupalvelu. The three-day ticket costs 67 euros and one-day tickets cost 32 euros.
