Summer full of jazz and blues!

During the upcoming summer, a new and varied edition of Kalottjazz & Blues Festival will be presented on the two first days of July. Almost twenty concerts are spread throughout the border geography of Haparanda and Tornio, from the preamble on Thursday to the closing concert on Saturday. 

You will be able to enjoy music in the most unusual venues – for instance on a jetty, in a railway station or at a playground.

Once again, visitors can enjoy music in atmospheric spaces such as the barn at the Åström yard (RIIHIjazz) and the festival culminates late Saturday, with a church concert at Nedertorneå. Festival visitors will meet loads of local talent as well as internationally famous artists. 

The main concerts at Blues Night and Jazz at Art Park feature liquor and food sales. You are also welcome to the event with your own picnic quilt! Blues Night is a K18 event, other events are unlimited. Please note: only card payment is accepted at the festival grounds.

Tickets for the Kalottjazz & Blues Festival are sold at Ticketmaster.fi and the grocery store Prisma in Tornio and in Kemi. Tickets can also be purchased from the Festival Office (Keskikatu 22, Tornio) during: Fri 1 July at 10-17 sv time and Sat 2 July at 11-16 sv time. Remember to exchange the purchased online ticket (applies to Blues Night, Jazz at Art park and Festivalpass) for bracelets either at the Festival Office or at the ticket booth on site before the concert starts. Only card payment for ticket purchases is possible at the festival area.
