As the year was approaching its end, I decided to finally hit up Kulttuuritalo (or Kultsa) on December 29, 2023, for the first time, and boy, have I been missing out. Designed by the legendary architect Alvar Aalto and hosting rock gods like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin since 1958, the venue’s got history oozing from every corner.
The lineup featured three bands I’d never caught live before. LOST SOCIETY crowned the night as the headliner and end my year of concert photography in 2023. Just like the two previous bands, LOST SOCIETY also brought joy to the stage filled with energy. But they also brought a surprise guest, GETTOMASA. A Finnish rapper who I do know by name, but I have no further familiarity with the artist. As the show had no age restrictions I was surprised how loose GETTOMASA was with his speeches because I'm used to seeing artist to chill down a bit.
That was the year 2023 wrapped for me. In total I shot 137 shows from variety of different bands, DJ, solo musicians and dance acts. The year 2024 has barely started and I've already shot my firts shows of the year, so you may expect quite a busy year for me! Humble thanks to all the great artists I've got to work with!
