What to wear to MUSIIKKITALO?
We’re glad you asked because the Musiikkitalo´s Concert Hall colour and atmosphere are inspired by the Finnish sauna. But have no fear. The Centre’s dress code is much more liberal than the sauna’s.
It is enough if you own a pair of trousers and shoes and a top. All else is up to you: many prefer hoodies, t-shirts, college shirts or knit garments, shorts, capris, jeans or—why not?—harem pants. Wear a tie if it feels alright. Suits or dresses won’t stand out negatively. Seasonal colours do not matter, nor does the Musiikkitalo care about fashion or etiquette religiously. If etiquette were of importance, we would say so well in advance.
What if I’m coming straight from work?
Many do, but you must be referring to odours produced by physical labour. If you break a sweat at work, can't shower before coming and are not willing to buy 10 seats, just wear light deodorant. It is known that Marilyn Monroe occasionally wore nothing but perfume, but she didn’t have thousands of allergic concert visitors around her.
Can I wear an overcoat?
Outdoor clothing and large luggage are not allowed in the halls. You can leave them with the secure and charged cloakroom service, which is located in the main lobby on the third floor. This has nothing to do with fashion but fire and exit safety laws and regulations.
