Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Porvoo Jazz Festival is a jazz festival organised with a big heart, which invests in quality and an intimate festival atmosphere with a bohemian touch. In honor of the anniversary, we are expanding the program and experimenting with new locations – one of our specialties is taking over the historic locomotive sheds of Porvoo’s Old Railway Station. We don’t take jazz too seriously. We want our audience and performers to have a comfortable and atmospheric experience above all. Interactivity is also important in our events, and we want to bring the most current and carefully selected jazz within touching distance.
The Porvoo Jazz Festival has been organized every autumn since 2013. The festival is located in the heart of Porvoo and the monthly Porvoo Jazz Clubs are arranged in the cultural space Vanha 123, renovated by the association. The former movie theater with three cozy halls and two bars is apt to create a setting for concerts where the audience becomes a part of the experience.
The festival is organized by Porvoo Jazz Festival ry, and its program is curated by the festival’s artistic director, jazz drummer Jaska Lukkarinen.
SIZE DOESN’T MATTER, JAZZ DOES!
