Helsinki Reclaim The Streets is held every year and it's a protest about making Helsinki central car-free. The whole idea is to take over a certain part of the street (changing every year) and make party in the street. Lot's of DJ's playing, people dancing and good atmosphere!

Usually organized the second weekend of June.

M bar terrace has usually DJ's and live music during weekends.

Middle on Helsinki. Easy to find.

How to get?
Kaisaniemi park is just next to the railway station.

Alppipuisto like I wrote, there are lot's of smaller festivals organized in Alppari. Usually these festivals suck lot's of people in it, so it's also nice way to see old friends. This year there's going to be free festivals too:

Elmu kansanjuhla is kept 29.-30.7.2011
Oranssi-Fest TBA (24.7.2011?)
Alppipuisto Jazz TBA (31.7.2011?)

How to get?
Tram 3B/T and 8. Hop off at Linnanmäki stop.

Senaatintori has lot's of gigs. Mostly they are not free, but as the gigs are held open air, you can listen to the music without a ticket. Last year bands like Arcade Fire played there!

End of summer

Taiteiden yö - The Night of Arts - is held end of August. There's happening all around the central during the day. Just walk around. Everything mostly free of charge.
