American rock group THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS is the headlining act for Saturday at Qstock. Formed in 1998 by Jared Leto, also known as an A-list Hollywood actor, and his brother Shannon, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS have come a long way, releasing five studio albums and playing sold-out shows all over the world. The last time that the group were seen in Finland was on their Monolith tour in Helsinki in May last year.
Other newly confirmed acts include CHILDREN OF BODOM who will release a new album in March and RICKY-TICK BIG BAND & JULKINEN SANA for whom this will be the final year of performing together, as well as TEFLON BROTHERS, DON HUONOT, SANNI and RUUSUT.
To book Thirty Seconds To Mars to Qstock was another wonderful reward for the work we have done. Jared Leto and his group will bring us a massive show that will undoubtedly be one of the most impressive in the history of Qstock. The rest of next summer’s playbill presents a suitable mixture of new, interesting acts and familiar, older ones. The genres are extremely varied, as has always been the case at Qstock. We will be dropping more confirmations as the summer approaches and announce the complete schedules during the spring.Mikko Forstén, Festival Director
