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.
Every year our international programme brings together the top names in modern jazz and the pathfinders of the future in 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 local and world-class artists and forceful club gigs until the small hours.
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.
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.
