Satellite Stories

Widely hailed as the most successful Finnish indie band in Europe, this band’s story was born out of the corridors of the University of Oulu. The band announced this past May that their collective story would come to an end this fall as they pursue their own individual stories. However, the band has agreed to include Vulcanalia on their farewell tour. So, if you want to see the band return to their home stage it’s now or never! Satellite Stories new album “Cut Out the Lights” debuts on 07.09.18.


Stig has been a well-known figure in the Finnish music scene for many years. He is known for his many hits, such as “Ryyppy”, “Roy Orbison” and “Puumaa mä metsästän.”
