Saturday Beatwave Festival is a day with two Jannes playing live: Puppa J Folk Trio and Super Janne. The common ground for the two Jannes is Finnish hiphop, yet while Puppa J connects his music with Finnish Folk and countryside reggae, Super Janne is more about the suburban sounds of Helsinki. dj Aksim will entertain the terrace and after party with a long dj set. Rare treat! NEW SHOWTIME! Puppa J Folk Trio 21.00 Super Janne 22.00

Puppa J Folk Trio plays reggae with a folk groove - hiphop in the spirit of hootennany!

A rebel in Finnish reggae scene, Puppa J released his second solo record "Kiveliö Kutsuu" (Suomen Musiikki Oy) in March 2012 and is now touring with his trio. His critical lyrics leave no one cold and Puppa's energetic style of performing guarantees a lively night.

The trio is like a feisty pepper, a fusion of Puppa J's soulful reggae style with Finnish traditional music styles blended with Afro Cuban rhythms. It is ogranic, sympathetic and guaranteed to create smiles and dance moves, and why not sing a long?

Super Janne is a hiphop, rap and soul artist from Helsinki. He is known for being a charismatic entertainer and a prolific singer/rapper/songwriter. He also records and produces his own music.

Super Janne has featured in records and songs by many finnish hiphop & rap bands/artists such as Stig, Kemmuru, Loost Koos, Edu Kehäkettunen, Jonde, Nopsajalka etc.
