What is Tiivistämö?
Located in Suvilahti, Tiivistämö is an urban venue that plays host to a range of different events, from concerts to raves, dance competitions and trade fairs.
Tiivistämö offers inspiring cultural and artistic experiences, as well as the opportunity to organise your own events in high-quality adaptable settings with the support of professionals. Further information about organising events is available from our producers.
In Suvilahti’s former existence as a gas plant, what is now an event space was used as a meter room for taking measurements and compressing gas. The space was used as part of the gas plant until its closure in the 80s, and it was fully renovated in 2014.
The Events Unit of the City of Helsinki’s Youth Services moved to Suvilahti in spring 2019, at the same time as the operations of Gloria Cultural Arena moved into Tiivistämö. Gloria Cultural Arena occupied a key position amongst a range of different subcultures, bringing the events held there and its own unique atmosphere to Tiivistämö. The City of Helsinki will be responsible for the renting out of the event space in the future.
