Vortex IV - 29.11. - 1.12.2019 @Huvikumpu Tulitikkutehdas, Tampere, Funland

Say what?

Fourth round of Vortex is here! Come join us to celebrate the closing consumer holiday with friends and foes. Red clothing with bells and beards are not required although somewhat recommended.

We have space for 80 visitors. This year there will be no freshments to sell, because they are included with your entrance ticket. Less hassle and more party. And of course, you are welcome to bring your own special needs. We ain't a bar.

There will be some night snacks available and breakfast of some sort.

Tickets will be sold for 50€ each. That is some dang bang for a buck.

Take the ride

Say where?

Place is the one and only Huvikumpu in the middle of historical factory area that has been cleaned up for us. If you've been at Vortex before, you know where to come.
