The Polar Night Jazz Festival 22.-25.11.2018

The Polar Night Jazz Festival in Saariselkä will bring together some of the best Finnish jazz performers, young rising stars and local sami artists. The festival programme offers a variety of events, from dinner concerts in gourmet restaurants to more intimate gigs in the local chapel and a down-to-earth venue at a hut in the forest. This year Polar Night Jazz wants to support upcoming musicians and therefore the program is build up together with the famous Oulu Jazz Conservatory. The Northern Lights dancing in the skies and snow-covered trees will add to this unique experience in the Far North, some 250 km north of the Arctic Circle where music echoes in the harmony with the arctic environment.
