WALTARI is back! In 2024, the band will tour on the back of the anniversary of its most successful album “So Fine” (1994) and all shows will be specially dedicated to that era.

Waltari believe in musical rebellion, blending genres and creating new and refreshing music. Waltari are living proof that a rock band can be inspired indefinitely and not stagnate at the same time. Just like their latest studio outputs, „Global Rock“, just alike the most recent collab work exhibit “3rd Decade – Anniversary Edition” showcase a fresh, diverse take on modern metal. Vocalist and mastermind Kartsy Hatakka sums up the philosophy of Waltari: „Rock is an attitude; an unquenched thirst to remain playful with life, 'til the very end! It's the world Waltari was born into. I still find it cool to put on my make-up and be an outcast. Our goal is to create music that will blow the minds of our listeners“. That works – on record as well as live:…0/dc4b7f52ba.

Most recently the band celebrated its 30th anniversary of its ever first album release (“Monk Punk”) and the Finns celebrated the jubilee with a new record full of hits – and full of well-known guests. Amongst the contributing friends are Kevin Ridley (Skyclad), Angelit, Jonne Järvelä (Koorpiklaani), Jyrki 69 (The 69 Eyes), Marco Hietala (ex Nightwish), Boomfunk MCs, Niki Rock (Barbe Q Barbies), Mr. Lordi (Lordi), Jürgen Engler (Die Krupps), April Art, Eläkeläiset, or a „Tampere All Stars Collective“ (fronted by Amberian Dawn singer Capri Virkkunen and with members of Beast In Black, Negative, Hanoi Rocks). Be prepared for a wild party the very WALTARI way… Expect the unexpected. There’s plenty to talk about Waltari – but for now: Let the music do the talking. What’s most important: The crazy Finns are back. So let them entertain you!
