13th Edition of FEMMAGAALA @ Helsinki

FEMMAGAALA awards concept, started in 2004, gives finnish bands a chance to be recognized in the most diverse categories, even if they were not the best sellers of the year. The categories change slightly in every edition, and as you can notice some of them lack a literal translation and are definitely not the most conventional ones. The nominees were selected by a jury comprised of influential people in the finnish metal music scene (Artists, music and cultural event promoters, music media, etc…).  The awards were granted by a combination of votes from the jury, artists and public that had the chance to vote via the official event webpage.

This year edition took place at Virgin Oil club located at the heart of Helsinki city center on the 5th of March. Attendees were rewarded with the live performance of KALEVI HELVETTI, KUNNIAMAININNAT, SOFA and ASA & BAND.

The big winner of the night with 27,5% of the audience votes, obtaining the public award for the 3rd consecutive year, was TURMION KÄTILÖT !! The other category winners and nominees are listed below.
