The services of the shopping center Red are very accessible, whether you need a pharmacy or a grocery store. Redi has good toilets and water points, as well as accessible toilets.

People with reduced mobility and special groups need a normal festival ticket. One assistant can enter free of charge with a ticketed customer who is entitled to an assistant. 

The assistant does not need a separate ticket, and the assistant does not have to be the same person every day of the festival. The assistant does not get his own wristband, but the assistant and the assistant move around the festival area together. 

We recommend taking the EU Disability Card, Friend Card or Visually Impaired Card with you. The card helps when entering through the festival gate, but it is not necessary for the entry of the customer and assistant. The assistant access also applies to interpreters.

The surface of the land in the festival area is diverse. Although the area is mostly accessible, there may be a staircase or a more challenging place on the main access route. The festival area is designed in such a way that there is also a accessible route option to the viewing area of ​​each stage and to the various festival services. Accessible routes are shown on the map with a wheelchair symbol. In addition, accessible, routes are marked on site.

The routes in the festival area are wide and the surface is mainly gravel or asphalt. Otherwise, the viewing and sitting areas of the festival have a gravel or asphalt surface – and a small amount of grass area.

The electric wheelchair can be charged at the Heavy Drinker’s Corner, in the Cirko building. 

The staff working in the building can help if needed.

There are wheelchair ramps near the mixing towers of the large outdoor stages. There is also a ramp next to the mixing booth on the tent stage. In addition, each large stage has side screens that make it easier to follow the show. 

The Tuska KVLT Stage by Inferno in the Tiivistämö building can be reached via a fixed ramp. The accessible WC is located next to the main entrance. 

There is barrier-free access to the Tuska Expo and the Sideshow program located in the Kattilahalli building. The accessible toilet of Kattilahalli can be found near the main doors of the building.

We do not use an induction loop. 

Please note that special effects such as pyrotechnics or smoke may be used in the performances. In addition, the shows may have strong and flashing lights. The sound level near the stages is relatively loud. You can buy earplugs near the Karhu Main Stage to protect your hearing if necessary.


There are plenty of places to sit and rest in the festival area. The largest resting places are located next to the dining areas.

There are limited shaded seats in the open festival area, so please remember to protect yourself from the sun on hot days.

Each toilet area of ​​the festival is equipped with an accessible toilet. The toilet areas are mainly unisex areas and the areas are marked on the festival map.

Accessible toilets are only intended for use by people with reduced mobility, people who use assistive devices or otherwise need accessible toilets, such as Vessapassi owners.

The toilet pass (Vessapassi) is in use at our event!

We want to promote the accessibility of our event by taking into account the people using Vessapassi at our event.

Every Tuska toilet area will have an accessible toilet, which is also reserved for the use of our Vessapassi festival guests. All accessible toilets will be equipped with a Vessapassi badge.

We hope that the visitors to our event will take into account the people using the Toilet Pass, by letting them, for example, to the front of the toilet queue. The card holder has a health reason that requires immediate use of the toilet. The toilet pass can be presented as an association’s membership card or on a mobile phone as a mobile version.

You can find more information about Vessapassi and the participating associations at www.vessapassi.fi

Equal access to help and support is arranged for all Tuska guests in the event area. Two equality and harassment contact persons are on duty at our festival. If you need help or additional instructions, please feel free to contact us. You can get in touch either through the Tuska application, by calling, texting or sending an email.
