The tenth Blockfest will be held in Tampere on 18.-19.8.2017. The city festival has sold out in advance every year, becoming in a short period of time the biggest hip hop event in the Nordic countries. In 2015 the festival crushed its earlier visitor records and was the summer’s most talked about festival when the Finnish superstar Cheek made a spectacular comeback and attracted up to 60 000 people to Tampere centre. Blockfest is a three-time nominee in the national Industry Awards gala.
