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.
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!
