DJ Yeboyah

DJ Yeboyah has been on a tear through Finland with her energetic live presence and hip-hop-, R&B, and afrobeat-focused DJ sets. She has played at smaller clubs all the way to the biggest festivals in Finland. Not only is she acquired with a good taste in music, but also a strong sense of fashion.



ALMA is a Finnish artist who’s established herself internationally with mega hit “Chasing Highs” and writes songs for other superstars such as Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey and Miley Cyrus. The pop and joy she pumps into her music without forgetting a personal twist, like her latest album “Time Machine”,  gives you a glimpse of the powerful performance she’ll have at Slush.



Finland’s Eurovision Song Contest hero, rapper, singer, and songwriter, Käärijä will get up on the legendary Founder Stage. It will be crazy, It will party — do we need to say more? Make sure to be there for an unforgettable Slush Afterparty moment.



Galantis is the dance music project of Christian Karlsson that’s received over 5 billion streams worldwide and 1.8 billion video views to date. You might recognize “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U & I)” from the mid-2010s or “Heartbreak Anthem” with David Guetta and Little Mix in 2021. Karlsson has even worked with Britney Spears on “Toxic”, performed at Coachella, and called “eternally effervescent” by Billboard.


Brooks B2B Vluarr

Dutch DJ/producer powerhouses, Brooks & Vluarr, will team up for a special back-to-back set, closing Founder Stage with the most exciting and energetic EDM experience at Slush to date.


Singa Karaoke Party

Looking to be the star of the show yourself? We got you.

Singa’s Karaoke Party (a classic at this point) is the ultimate Slush afterparty experience. Head over to Builder Stage to sing your heart out on stage or in the crowd, or just stare in awe as your favorite investor aces Dancing Queen by ABBA.

If this is your first time at Slush, do not miss this.


Loska Studio

Startup Studio will transform into Loska Studio for the Slush Afterparty. The stage will blast slushy beats straight from the Helsinki dance music scene. Rave, dance, jump, and simply let yourself loose with some of the coolest local DJ talents.





Beats & Vibes

Horizon Stage will transform into a place to gather with fellow Slush-goers at the beginning of the night to hang out and enjoy incredible musical performances. Grab a drink, and some food, and come enjoy something truly unique.

The ambiance will be set by a TAKOMO DJ-set featuring Eero Saunamäki, and it will take you on a whole new kind of musical journey. Get ready for the most surprising and creative party music you’ll ever witness.
