Pori Jazz is a major international event with top-notch performers from around the world.
The Jazz Street Stage as well as other venues will host numerous domestic and international performers in July. Like many years before, a fair share of concerts will be free of charge.
Pori Jazz is one the pioneering festivals in Finland. The daring idea of organizing a jazz festival was born among brave jazz enthusiasts and musicians during the 1960’s, and the first Pori Jazz took place in July 1966. The beginnings were humble, but the festival soon started to grow bigger year by year.
At the moment, Pori Jazz is one of the most well known and beloved summer events in Finland. It gathers crowds of 120,000 to 160,000 people every year.
