Suvilahti is a very unique and interesting venue. It was built in 1909 and started working as a power plant in 1910. The power plant then closed in 1976 with gas production ending in 1994. The real estate company Kiinteisto Oy Kaapelitalo which are owned by the city of Helsinki began developing, renting and and maintaining the facilities in 2008. The venue is home to photography studios, artists, writers, production companies and advertising agencies. The courtyard outside is massive and is used for open-air events such as Flow Festival. The Flow festival has been located at this venue every year since 2004.

WHAT IS FLOW?
Flow Festival is a music and arts festival in Helsinki, Finland. The next, 10th edition of the festival will be organized on 7–11 August, 2013.
The music presented at Flow is a strong and varied selection of up and coming and established artists from indie-rock to soul and jazz and from folk to contemporary club sounds, both from the Finnish and the international scene.
The historic Suvilahti, a short walk away from the centre of Helsinki, is an alluring setting for a few days of blissed-out festival escapism. Held in the shadows of a disused power station, built at the turn of the century, the looming location is one of Helsinki’s most monumental architectural sites. Embracing its penchant for urban spaces and modern art, Flow’s venue sets it aside as one of the most exciting and innovative festivals of the summer.
Beyond the music, Flow offers a warm embrace of the arts, offering art displays from Scandinavia and abroad as well as showcasing art house film, cinema, lectures and an exceptional array of world spanning cuisine. There’s easily enough to keep attendees occupied, if ever spending a weekend in culture hub Helsinki, in the middle of summer wasn’t enough.
Telegraph, 2012 - "This art-filled urban festival, on the site of an old power plant near the city center, is compact, but a lot of thought has gone into creating a variety of colourful entertainment places."
