An atmospheric movie theatre that seats almost 200 people and has been a part of the We Jazz programme for many years. Sit back, relax, listen to jazz.
A We Jazz classic. A perfect club venue that it’s always a pleasure to return to. Some of the best We Jazz nights have been at Dubrovnik, why not keep up the trend?
Newly opened this year in the Tori Quarters, El Fant is the perfect place to continue last year’s “Jazz kiinnostaa”-brunch concept. This year the eight day festival will host two brunches at El Fant.
G Livelab is Helsinki’s newest venue and a very special one at that. The intimate space hosts about 180 people is a perfect new location for this year’s event.
A lovely secret on the event map. Owned by speaker manufacturer Genelec, this wooden house in Arabianranta is an experience in itself. The house has gone through some changes since last year. Genelec has built a stage called the Artist Room downstairs that we get to use for this year’s concerts.
Helsinki Contemporary made their We Jazz debut by curating one of the gallery spreads in last year’s We Jazz magazine. This year we take the cooperation to the next level by arranging two afternoon concerts in the gallery.
If you want to run into members of the We Jazz collective, Sävy is a good place to start. Our cooperation has resulted in a bunch of concerts of which last years Bowman Trio concert at Kahvila Sävy became the first LP release on the We Jazz label.
A new find for this year. This place was previously a mental institution. Now, it will be the location for a gallery concert and continuous performances in several small rooms. The space has a uniquely relaxing atmosphere and in the daytime you can stop by for lunch or coffee.
Riviera Cinema Bar
A lovely new movie theatre in the bohemian Kallio neighbourhood. We’ll watch a movie, we’ll have a good time. This is actually the first movie screening in We Jazz history, and anyone with a ticket to any festival concert can attend for free.
The Finnish National Theatre
Läntinen Teatterikuja 1
The big stage of the National Theatre has a certain allure. As soon as you enter the space you can feel something big is about to happen. We Jazz got to experience this while arranging a record release concert for Verneri Pohjola a while back. It’s a pleasure to be back for the opening concert of this year’s festival.
WHS Teatteri U:NI:ON
WHS Teatteri U:NI:ON is a nice and intimate venue for concerts that enchanted us last year. We’re glad to be back this year with two excellent acts from Berlin.
