JazzPiknik

Urban Sunday picnic brings four live acts and DJ music to mbar terrace and Lasipalatsi Square on August 4th. JazzPiknik tops the Jazz-Espa concert series and offers a great variety of Finnish jazz.

In the picnic basket we have everything from PLOP trio’s hilariously anarchistic free jazz, Jaska Lukkarinen Quartet‘s more traditional approach and Lightboxer‘s cool grooves to the final kaboom: rootsy afro jazz blast by the Finnish-Beninese 8-piece band Helsinki – Cotonou Ensemble. The record plates are kept sizzling hot by We Jazz DJs throughout the day and evening. The event is family-friendly in the afternoon.

JazzPiknik is a co-production of the Finnish Jazz Federation and mbar. The event is supported by the the Finnish Music Foundation MES, the City of Helsinki and organized in co-operation with the Lasipalatsi Media Centre Ltd.
