Welcome to Summer Bay Jazz – Suvilahti Jazz!

The annual Jazz-Espa concert series and its sister events offer once again more than 20 top-notch jazz concerts this upcoming summer. This year, the beloved free shows of the Espa outdoor stage will be organised on 30 July – 4 August, with two concerts taking place every afternoon and one lunch concert at noon.

The Jazz-Espa concert series will be opened on the last Sunday of July at the restaurant ship Merikerho terrace with buoyant DJ sets and live shows from two bands. The closing party will be organised at the same venue one week later on 5 August, seeing DJs and three bands entertain the audience. The late night main act of the closing party will, however, be playing in the indoor club venue. The opening and closing parties are free and open to the whole family, while the late night concert of the closing night admits only those of age.
