Spring's number one attraction The Voice of Finland is sold out
More events for Logomo
Since Capital of Culture year, Logomo has led a quiet life; that now changes as the events centre's programme comes back to life in the spring. Most significantly, it becomes the focus for the whole country from Friday, March 10 onwards when The Voice of Finland competition is broadcast live from Logomo.
Logomo aims to further enhance the handsome legacy of Capital of Culture year by fulfilling its promise to become a diverse national events centre in 2012.
That aim has been given a flying start by the arrival of the popular TV show The Voice of Finland, which made its first live broadcast from Logomo last Friday. The competition took place in a rapturous atmosphere and is already sold out for the six Friday broadcasts. The competition will reach a peak with the finals in late April.
Top artists and restaurant
According to Logomo's Managing Director Päivi Rytsä, Logomo will live and evolve all the time. Restaurant facilities will be completed later in autumn, and by spring of 2013 a total of 3,500 m2 of space will be harnessed for companies in the creative industries.
– Logomo works flexibly, for example, after the broadcast of The Voice of Finland on Friday the stage scenery is transferred and covered, and Logomo's Saturday programme will accomodate something else. This spring Logomo will be full of different types of events and corporate functions, states Rytsä.
