Oulu Local Customs: 8 reviews and 7 photos

by Scandic

Oulu has an earned reputation as the Heavy Metal City of Finland. There are lots of heavy fans around here and many upcoming and going bands, the most well known is Sentenced. The scene is quite wide, but definitely Oulu has a lot of potential as a heavy city as do many other northern cities in Scandinavia, especially in Norway.

There are lots of heavy gigs in Oulu, like Judas Priest visited this Spring 2005. You see many gothic way dressed youngs around and overall heavy music is liked. So definitely, take a look at local gigs once you are here.
