Founded in 1987, this swinging music festival is always arranged for the first weekend of July when the summer is at its most glorious. Though growing over the years, Baltic Jazz has always managed to preserve its original cordiality and elevated mood with a balanced blend of classical jazz, blues and rock music in the unique old ironworks milieu of Taalintehdas. Baltic Jazz is part of the Archipelago Sea Jazz festival series.

As one of the world’s longest-running major jazz events, the programme of Pori Jazz never fails to feature top names from Finland and the wider world. The unique atmosphere, diversified high standard programme, fine services and beautiful surroundings of this festival attract about 400,000 visitors every year. A special Pori Jazz Kids Festival will also be arranged for children.
Every year our carefully compiled programme brings together the top names in modern jazz and the pathfinders of the future for a four-day event that is renowned for its warm atmosphere and broadminded appreciation of contemporary jazz. Visitors should be prepared to experience high profile Finnish and international artists and forceful club gigs until the small hours.
This uniquely international event in the far north will delight the Tornio public once again at the end of June as the cultures of Finland and Sweden come together for a programme of jazz and blues in a renovated festival park, and in more traditional church settings.
This splendid festival has been entertaining with top quality jazz since 1969. The programme will include currently headlining Finnish artists, the most interesting international names and emerging local talent. Concerts will take place in the outdoor venues and clubs of the city centre.
