TeCHNO
SNATCH

International weightlifting and dance music event.

The Olympic games have been postponed, festivals have been cancelled and the people who live from and for these events are suddenly without a job. 

To help the people do what they love, Techno Snatch brings together some of Europe’s best weightlifters and Finnish electronic music artists in an event that has not been seen before. At least not in Finland as far as we know :)

NOVEMBER 7th, Helsinki, Finland

We are also looking for companies to join us and fund the rewards for the lifters and the artists. The event will be televised, so if you or your company want to participate, send us a message.

The DJs will be creating the unique atmosphere for the event. Hopefully the beats will boost the lifters to amazing performances.

A national weightlifting competition for masters will take place in the afternoon. Masters may register via painonnosto.fi website.

Some of Europe’s best lifters have been invited to lift in Techno Snatch. We have heard rumors that a world record will be attempted.

Find the schedules for both the weightlifting and the DJs here.

The athletes will be rewarded for personal records, as well as national or continental records.

Ruskeasuo Sports Center is located 4 km from Helsinki City center.

We are making this happen

The Process – Health & Performance organizes most of this, brings in the athletes and provides them with training facilities in their Underground gym in Kulosaari.

Herakles Helsinki is the weightlifting club organizing the weightlifting competition, bringing in the refs and making it all official.

Joiku Music is the electronic music agency, record label and event organizer. They bring the artists to the event.

DJLaitteet.fi brings in all the tech, PA-systems and lighting to make the event look and sound amazing.
