@antti_tuisku ❤️‍🔥Rovaniemi 

Rovaniemi-native artist Antti Tuisku performed two huge gigs at Helsinki Olympic Stadium on Friday and Saturday. "Bailantai" was so far the biggest music show a Finnish artist has ever performed there. And what a Show it was! 

We are so proud of Antti ❤️‍🔥✨

See millions of stars from a premium class hotel (or, if you're lucky, even the Northern Lights) ✨

✨@glass_resort on the Arctic Circle opens at 30th September.

✨In all probability, there won't be snow by then as the first snow is normally due sometime between October and November. Permanent snow arrives later.
