The next Tampere Jazz Happening will be held 3–6 November, 2022.
The Tampere Jazz Happening celebrates its even-numbered anniversary this year with a photography exhibition.
Because the Covid-19 pandemic guidelines for events have recently been changed towards fewer restrictions, the Tampere Jazz Happening will complement its anniversary festival programme with a late-night event. On Friday 5 November, Malian singer-guitarist Habib Koité will arrive to perform a concert at Klubi.
During four days, altogether 23 ensembles will perform at the festival, including the winner of this year’s Yrjö Award, who will be performing in conjunction with the award ceremony that takes place at the festival.
The Tampere Jazz Happening of 2020 will be remembered as an exceptional festival year in many ways.
The most prestigious prizes in the Finnish jazz industry were given at the Tampere Jazz Happening festival on Friday the 30th of October.
Between 29th October and 1st November 2020, the 39th annual Tampere Jazz Happening will fill the stages of Pakkahuone at Tullikamari as well as at the restaurant Telakka.
This year, the Tampere Jazz Happening will feature a completely Finnish programme. For this exceptional edition, the festival is presented on a smaller scale than usual, during four days, between 29th October and 1st November 2020. The event has two dedicated venues, Pakkahuone and Telakka, and they will welcome a total of 18 ensembles and orchestras.
