This annual event brings blues enthusiasts and music fans to Järvenpää at the end of June to enjoy an authentic blues atmosphere. Five days of top class music will culminate in the main concert on the festival Saturday. The rhythms can also be enjoyed at popular clubs and in the downtown Blues Street area throughout the festival week. This family-friendly festival is organised by a dedicated group of volunteers.
The largest jazz festival in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area will be arranged at Tapiola in Espoo. The programme will feature a wide spectrum of Finnish and international rhythm musi stars. As in previous years, April Jazz Espoo will be hosted by the Espoo Big Band.
This splendid festival has been entertaining large audiences with top quality jazz since 1969. The hallmarks of this event are a contemporary atmosphere and all forms of jazz music from swing to free jazz. Concerts will take place in the indoor venues and clubs of the city centre.
This unusual celebration provides a pleasing blend of classical jazz and rocking blues. The delightful scenery of the historic Taalintehdas ironworks is a splendid setting for a musical event, and the broad concert programme will include something for family members of all ages!
