On Friday night (Feb. 17) the first-ever Finnish Metal Awards will take place on the main stage. The gala will reward the most notable Finnish metal acts of 2005. Nominees for the categories were elected by the Finnish metal media and the people will cast their votes to decide the winners. The voting takes place at www.imperiumi.net/fma2005.
Artists and timetables for the widely popular instrument clinics will be confirmed within next few weeks. There are two clinic stages this year and the artists will feature some world-class stars.
