Hämeenkadun Appro, the biggest and the most beautiful student event of all time, is SOLD OUT once again! Thank you all!


The biggest and most beautiful student event is here, this year bigger than ever before! Hämeenkadun Appro 2018 takes over the streets of Tampere as over 10 000 students go on their annual pub crawl on the 11th of October.

The pub crawl starts from Keskustori and ends there as well. The purpose is to go from bar to bar in order to achieve one of the 5 ‘academic degrees’ of drinking (also non-alcoholic drinks available). Thousands of students from all over the country get together to have blast at this popular student event wearing their ‘overalls’ that represent their field of study. (Don’t worry, you can also attend without overalls.) After the crawl there are ELEVEN afterparties with the biggest finnish artists performing:

Pakkahuone – Mikael Gabriel
Ilona – Kasmir
Ranta – Heavyweight
Union – Nikke Ankara
Fat Lady – Tippa
Roska – Kauriinmetsästäjät
Bricks – Cledos
Yo-talo – Elias Gould
Naima – Ilta
Olympia – Juno
Ilves – Ida Paul & Kalle Lindroth
