People of Finland just heard some great news when Ruisrock announced their first slate of bands. On a list of (perhaps too) many metal acts, also Mew were announced. It’s been three years since Mew have played Finland and that show was Ruisrock 2006 (previously Mew have played this very same festival in 2003). The oldest annual rock festival (since 1970) in Nordic region, Ruisrock is held on a beautiful island in the city of Turku on July 3rd-5th and other main acts so far include Slipknot and Disturbed. Take a look at the festival’s official announcement with many other acts that will invade the Finnish stages this summer.
Many Nordic summer festivals clash with Ruisrock. For example, the Swedish Arvika Festival, the Norwegian Quart and the Danish pride Roskilde. It would be no surprise if Mew are announced to some of the aforementioned festivals as well. Roskilde should be a certainty.
