Kallio Block Party 2017 - Saturday August 5, 2017


"How would you like to enjoy one of the busiest streets in Helsinki without all the traffic? Kallio Block Party invites you to do exactly that on Saturday, August the 5th!

Run entirely by volunteers, the seventh annual block party turns the Sturenkatu area into a huge urban festival. The block party lasts until dusk and continues through the night at the official KBP 2017 after-party at Kulttuuritalo.

The ten stages of the festival will be stacked with live music acts. In the great tradition of KBP, the party will kicked off at the main stage by a legendary headliner at 2:00pm, which this year will be Remu & Hurriganes. More acts and other information will be announced soon. Stay tuned!

The daytime event of Kallio Block Party is free and open for everybody. While all good things must come to an end, this party won't die down that easily. Kulttuuritalo will host the official KBP 2017 after-party for 2000 festivalgoers and fans of electronic music from 10:00pm to 4:00am. Ticket revenues will be used to cover the free daytime event.

In order to make sure that the party will be as enjoyable as possible, we challenge every festivalgoer to pay particular care to keeping the streets clean during this community event. Be kind and properly dispose of every piece of refuse and every cigarette butt you discard. Pack only things you know you're going to need to spare us all from unnecessary waste. You can also contribute to the maintenance of the event by purchasing the five euro KBP -wristbrand to fund the cleanup and the restroom expenses of the party. The volunteers of the event and the street maintenance division of Helsinki thank you for minding the environment.


Run entirely by volunteers, Kallio Block Party is an annual, non-commercial community event. The volunteers have been working on the festival for months, all acts will perform pro-bono, and our partners of many years Laitilan Wirvoitusjuomat, Nooa Säästöpankki, Kallion Seurakunta, and Helsingin Rakennusvirasto have collaborated with us to build this event.

Kallio Block Party and Kallio-liike in general are all about volunteering and working together to create something special. All those who live, work, or spend time in the area are welcome to take part in the organisation of the event. Become a volunteer by filling this form:
