URB 24 festival, 3 - 9 June

Mannerheiminaukio 2, 00100 Helsinki

Kiasma Theatre’s annual festival of urban art and culture will be held for the 25. time this year in Kiasma, Cable Factory and Stoa.

URB’s festive summer! It’s time to give space to great emotions, pleasure, courage, incompleteness and different encounters. URB has given the voice to the city, and been a reflection of its pulse and diversity for 25 incredible years already.

The week-long early summer festivities start off at Kiasma and from there, move towards eastern Helsinki. The program is filled with urban art forms; from street dance to queereeoké, from cutting edge performances to relaxed street parties.
