ARRIVING TO / EXITING THE VENUE
Kantola Event Park (Kantolan tapahtumapuisto) is located in the city of Hämeenlinna, approximately a one-hour drive from Helsinki and Tampere. Hämeenlinna can easily be reached by train or bus. Kantola Event Park is located by the lake Vanajavesi on a 9.5 hectare park area.
We are expecting 55 000 concert-goers on the day of the event and the roads to the city and within and the park gates will be crowded at times. The concert is on a weekday and public transportation will be filled with commuters as well. We recommend arriving early and enjoying the services of the venue.
The easiest way to get to Hämeenlinna is by public transport. Arriving to the venue from the city center is through Vanajantie-Kantolankatu-Luukkaankatu-Puusepänkatu walking route. You can arrive by foot or by bike. Gates to the venue are located in Puusepänkatu.
We recommend reserving enough time to arrive, the route to Kantola by foot is approx. 3km (30 min). Hämeenlinna city will be providing signage to mark the route – you can also see the route from this map. Please take into account the weather on the day of the event and wear comfortable shoes! Local businesses en route will be open as usual and we kindly ask concert patrons to take this into consideration as you walk to the concert park. Please reserve enough time, as there will be a mass of people walking with you.
Please follow Live Nation Finland Facebook event, Twitter and metallicafinland.fi website on the day of the event for updates about the status of parking spaces and other traffic arrangements!
NOTE! THE FOLLOWING TEMPORARY TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT:
Vanajantie: one-way street from the city center southwards, no traffic will be allowed on Vanajantie starting from the afternoon.
Vanajantie will be closed early evening so the Drop-off point for vehicles will not be in use after the concert. If you have persons picking you up after the concert, the best plan is to agree to meet e.g. at the city center (this does not concern patrons with disabilities).
Route VT10 near Kantola will be closed before the concert ends to ensure a smoother departure for vehicles leaving the area.
