Watch Finland’s Epic New Year’s Eve Countdown


New Year’s Eve rose to a whole new level of awesome in the capital city of Helsinki, Finland last weekend. The European metropolis threw a massive bash in the city center to commemorate the end of 2016, and ring in 2017 with a timeless classic. Special guest DJ, Darude, played his 2001 banger ‘Sandstorm’ which was perfectly timed to a state-of-the-art light and firework show.

The song that we all know and love made a stellar comeback to an ecstatic crowd who were absolutely loving the blast from the past. People went nuts when the Finnish native dropped that oh so familiar beat as his booth turned into a large clock, counting down the remaining seconds of 2016. Sound to cool to be true? Check out the video of the breathtaking show below!
