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 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.
Founded in 1987, this swinging music festival is held two weeks after Midsummer every year. 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.
This uniquely international event in the far north will delight the Tornio-Haparanda public once again at the beginning of July as the cultures of Finland and Sweden come together for a programme of jazz and blues in a scenic festival park, and in more traditional church settings.
